Ritta is a woman from Weld and the mother of Crell.[1]

History[]

Early life[]

Years ago, before the skimmers had started attacking Weld, Ritta's husband had worked on the Wall with Kaz, the husband of Ritta's friend Lisbeth. This was when Ritta's son Crell and his friends, including Lisbeth and Kaz's sons, had been schoolboys. This changed when Kaz died on the Wall from a skimmer attack.[1]

The Golden Door[]

The day after Sholto had been announced as missing, Lisbeth, his mother, had decided to visit Ritta after being to the square rather than heading directly home. Lisbeth was not sure why — perhaps because she had lost two of her sons, perhaps because she wanted to urge Ritta to rejoice that her son was safe, instead of feeling shamed because he had returned home instead of volunteering to seek out and destroy the source of the skimmers, or perhaps she simply wanted to reminisce about a time when Ritta's husband and hers worked together on the Wall, their children had been young schoolboys and life in Weld was safe and unchanging. Ritta, however, though she made the appearance of being shamed by her son's actions, was believed by Rye to be only concealing a secret relief that her son was safe.

Ritta and Lisbeth spent a long time drinking tea and talking, and Lisbeth only realised how much time had went by when the end-of-work bell at the Keep sounded. Frantically she hurried out and headed home, to tell her son Rye to seal the house before the skimmers attacked.[1]
