Relationship with Mikali
Benna was basically abandoned to the care of the rest of Mikali's breeding-group, with Luna asked to occasionally dropping by to round out the four. Mikali felt, and still feels, unable to care for her, but... time will tell.
Benna (or "Ben") was named after the father of sh'Shar's friend, and was also given sh'Shar's surname, even though naming was supposed to be a communal activity. This was because, essentially, Mikali browbeat the rest of her breeding group. Fortunately, they were so excited by the news that they agreed to her unreasonable demands.
