Kulung (settled as none)
Ama was born c. 1988, the daughter of a herdsman.
Ama went to visit Pagdzin tulku in Cho-Lung Se in order to obtain a powder which would wake Lyra from her sleep. When Ama returned, she saw that it was, in fact, Mrs Coulter who was keeping her daughter asleep. Together with William Parry, Ama helped Lyra to escape from her mother.
