Upadamida of the Moon-Bull Thiasos is said to have been the most powerful Etoi Matriarch on the continent of Askedoria after the Invasion of the Iskuzai. The poets of Epizephrya sing about the beauty of her pearly palace where a fountain supported by twelve silver lions kept the air cool and perfumed even during the scorching Summer. Two blessed, white feathers adorned her turban, some claims that the Concubine-Oracle Tumsilt herself gave them to Erodara, grandmother of the great-grandmother of Upadamida, in a time before the foundation of Iskuzai city of Demia and the Scarlet League. According to those stories, the feathers belonged to a sacred animal.
Although Upadamida's kingdom was forced for years to pay tribute to the mighty Zeugridas city of Coiea, the matriarch organized in secret an army led by the Iskuzai mercenary Black-Cicada to free herself from those shackles. Some legends tell that after furious battles, the banner of the Moon-Bull Thiasos was raised on the acropolis of Coiea, but in the moment of her triumph, Upadamida fell to the ground dead, killed by a mysterious evil. Other poets claim that Upadamida's army was instead defeated, and the matriarch was forced to flee, taking refuge among the Hattusas of Tartus.
