Rhonda is a Moroi fortune teller who works at court. Her Dhampir nephew Ambrose brings Rose and Lissa to her so she can tell them their future. She asks Dimitri if he wants a reading and he agrees. The reading says: "You will lose what you value most, so treasure it while you can" referring to his soul which he later loses when he is turned into a Strigoi. Rose thinks Rhonda is a con artist, but Dimitri explains that she's actually a vrăjitoare, some kind of a Romanian witch.
