Holang was kidnapped from T'u lung when she was a child and sold as a wife in Motra. Thanks to her beauty, she was bought by the Baron Mukow Jian of Pim Tung as a house slave but instead became his third wife.
By 1357 DR, Holang ruled Pim Tung with an iron fist, with the Jo'nai Gompa full of her spies and the dzong-pon as her puppet. Her son was chosen as Mukow's heir and Holang was plotting to make her husband emperor of Tabot. She often conferred with Baron Phen Do.
