Tamra was an old woman, the seeress of the Six Guardians of the Goddess. She was a grocer on the Street of David selling apples.
When Arthur passed the test of Ione, she sent him to the seeress. Tamra then sent him to 'the star and crescent' where Fatima dwelt. She also gave him an apple that ends hunger, slakes thirst and eases weariness.
