For the short story, see "Tides Elba: A Tale of the Black Company"

Tides Elba was a holy prostitute of an established cult in the prosperous city of Aloe. She and at least 15 other women inhabited the massive Temple of Occupoa. There, they sold their services to raise funds for the cult. The young woman was a nascent sorceress: she unconsciously emitted an enchantment that caused nearby people (most notably men) to be overwhelmingly attracted and loyal to her.

She was targeted for kidnapping by the Lady because she was a pawn in one of the Dominator's plots to escape from the Barrowland.

The Annalist Croaker specifies that the name is pronounced "Teadace". The attraction aura emitted by Tides Elba would prove to be extremely similar to the "love me" effect emitted by her distant cousin, the Daughter of Night (child of Croaker and Lady) many years later.

Port of Shadows elaborates on her significantly, as she is revealed to be the template for numerous Resurrectionist duplicates as well as becoming one of the new Taken under the name Mischievous Rain.
