Hecuba (deceased) is one of the many ghosts who haunt the forests on Croatoa. She is "elderly, like most of the ghosts, but she was barefoot and bareheaded, with her ghostly gray hair spilling down over her shoulders, which were covered only in a nightgown." She also bears a "conspicuous bloody wound in the center of her chest."
Alexandra Quick met her and Joshua Thorn in November of 2009 after wandering in the forest and becoming ensared in a quicksand pit. Hecuba offered to inform Absalom Thorn that Quick and Valeria White were safe.
