Sister Lala was on close terms with Jo Shanks, who would make his donations for widows by passing off his coin purse to her. On one occasion, just before the Citadel Congress at Cloud Mountain, Lala noted with some surprise that Jo was contributing most of his pay, something he had done previously.
Sister Lala attempted to dissuade Jo, saying that he couldn't possibly give so much, but the smiling archer left before she could object further. Lund, who had something of a low opinion of Lala, later reported to Jo that she had been looking for him. Jo objected to Lund's name-calling, and Lund retorted by joking that perhaps Jo should ask Sister Lala to the summer mingle.
