House Hamaradin was known to have a spy network, and Brightlady Hamaradin was personally involved in these activities. Ishnah claimed to have been trained as a spy for House Hamaradin, learning various techniques such as information gathering and message coding. Mraize investigated Ishnah and found that she did indeed perform espionage for House Hamaradin, but was merely an assistant rather than a true spy.
At one point, Ishnah overheard Brightlady Hamaradin talking about the Ghostbloods. Ishnah believed that Hamaradin somehow crossed the Ghostbloods and they killed her. She may have died after the Alethi moved from the Shattered Plains to Urithiru, as some of the people in House Hamaradin's employ were accused of the murder and went underground there.
