We don't get to know this Resthaven resident all that well, but Myanda helps Tendai out when she can. Why? It turns out his dad did her a solid back in the day. Listen to her explain her life before Resthaven:

"We thought that was pretty funny. Me and my friends used to raid old people's homes for drugs. We rode on robocycles to make a fast getaway. One night, General Matsika's men ambushed us." (22.51)

After that, the General encouraged Myanda to live in Resthaven so she wouldn't be temped to stray from the straight and narrow again. She's an example of how the traditional life can work for some people who need more structure in their lives.
