Oona was a lieutenant in the MacNamara clan. She marched along with the MacNamara expeditionary force, and fought in the War of the Ember.

Frost Wolf

In Frost Wolf, Oona is first seen barely arriving at the Blood Watch from the MacNamara clan.

Spirit Wolf

Oona, who was heading to the MacNamara clan, is found dead by Gwynneth in one of the many crevasses now spread across the Beyond, and tells Faolan, his sisters and friends the news. The wolves were shocked that Oona had died beacuse she had survived the War of the Ember and the Watch Wolf rebellion.
