Jennica "Flame Riser" O'Cuinn (O'Quinn) was born in a small drey in the North Highlands. She was the youngest daughter of Aengus and Calta O'Cuinn. She had her mother's dark red fur and her father's dark brown eyes. An attractive squirrel, she had an air of mystery about her.

Jennica's chosen weapons were a yew bow, a quiver with ashwood arrows and her father's long dirk. Her preferred choice of attack was flaming arrows, which earned the Highlander her nickname.
