She is briefly mentioned with the MacNamara clan throughout the series. Her main role is played in the Guardians of Ga'Hoole series where she is the friend of Coryn.


Gyllbane had a beautiful, soft cream pelt, and she had intense green eyes that once made a glow on the snow. She had either a black or brown nose.


Cody- Son (deceased)


Her son, Cody, may have had a pelt similar to his mother's.

In the Guardians of Ga'Hoole

The Outcast

Gyllbane's son, Cody, has been made a malcadh by the MacHeath clan - his tail and paw pads has been cut off, in hope that he will become a wolf of the watch when he is of the age. Gyllbane befriends Coryn and Hamish, and cheers when Coryn retrieves the Ember of Hoole. She helps drive the wolf with foaming-mouth disease into an ember pit, away from the dying Uglamore.

The Golden Tree

Gyllbane fought alongside the owls with Hamish and her son, Cody, dies protecting the Book of Kreeth from Nyra. She sees his spirit descend to the Star Ladder, and she howls with joy.

The War of the Ember


Her Son Cody As A Grown Up

Gyllbane, now known as Namara, is visited by a polar bear, an old friend her hers, who tells her about a strangely smart puffin who informed her about a blue owl and a Barn Owl with a hideously scarred face. Namara realizes that the puffin saw The Striga and Nyra, and howls. She is last seen at the Hot Gates.
