Have you set the correct charset in global settings?

See: https://www.povray.org/documentation/3.7.0/r3_4.html#r3_4_1_6

P.S.: https://www.povray.org/documentation/3.7.0/r3_3.html#r3_3_2_7_2 
does not mention how characters beyond the BMP are handled at all.

\u02ca ist the wrong character. It is a "spacing" letter, not a 
"combining diacrticial mark" (which are intended to be combined with a 
letter).

See:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spacing_Modifier_Letters

vs.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Combining_Diacritical_Marks — where the 
"combining acute accent" is at U+0301.
