- - Lutta's last words To Be a King
|Appears in:||To Be a King|
At birth, Lutta was just an ordinary owl, taken from her nest by another hagsfiend named Kreeth. Shortly after birth, a fyngrot spell that had been casted on Lutta created a new type of hagsfiend that she referred to as a changeling. Left by her parents, Ygryk and Pleek, Kreeth taught Lutta how to control her rapid changes in species. After retrieving a feather from Strix Hurthwel, Kreeth sent Lutta to steal the Ember, disguised as Hurthwel's daughter Emerilla.
As Emerilla, Lutta led a squadron trained with close blades through the Narrows, where she reappeared as a hagsfiend and retrieved the Ember, which turned out to be a copy, the real hanging in a vial tied around Hoole's neck. Upon discovering Lutta had taken a fake Ember, Kreeth cast the fyngrot on her and turned her back into Emerilla, so she could get the real Ember of Hoole.
- A changeling is also a creature in medieval folklore.
