Rogue’s Gallery: Namazzi Akullo

With her toned physique and straight-backed gait, Namazzi appears to be a much younger woman than she is. Her wise, confident eyes and the occasional patch of graying stubble on her shorn head betray the truth however. Namazzi has ensured the safety of trade goods and travelers from Nangui, the City of Sorcerers, for over three decades.

A Blade Among Books. Namazzi’s parents were certain their youngest child would be a renowned parchment-maker as every member of each of their families had been for generations. Their certainty evaporated when their young daughter began running through the home battling imaginary fiends while brandishing a wooden serving spoon as though it was a sword. Namazzi didn’t have the patience to prepare the skins used to make parchment or to stretch and scrape them carefully, but she excelled at killing the rats drawn to the scent of unprepared animal hides. It didn’t take them long to realize they would be more prosperous if they found other tasks to occupy Namazzi’s time, so they procured the services of a retired city watch captain to train her to fight.

Ghost of the Market Stalls. Namazzi excelled in her training. It wasn’t long before she learned everything her teacher could impart on her, and she was eager to learn more. She knew her parents couldn’t afford to hire a rotating cast of trainers to teach her, so she sought out talented warriors and traded her cooking and cleaning services for martial training. By her early teens, she was well-versed in every weapon and fighting style common to her home city. Around that time, she met Endana, a girl about the same age as her. The two became fast friends, and Namazzi would hover near Endana’s workplace, where her friend danced to draw customers to her parents’ market stall. When men made advances toward Endana, Namazzi would try to persuade them to leave the girl alone. When she failed with her words, she would follow the men and administer a sound beating to them. Before Namazzi could explore her deepening feelings for her friend, her parents asked her to help guard a caravan carrying their parchment to markets in Siwal. Beholden to her family, she agreed.

A Ribbon in the Wind. Though she missed her friend and family, Namazzi exulted in the freedom she found on the road. She also enjoyed the chances it gave her to utilize her skill with weapons against hostile targets. When she returned to Nangui, she rushed to see Endana at her earliest opportunity, but her friend’s parents, who had never approved of Namazzi, told her Endana had been married to an advisor to Nulu Nagoa, the city’s ruler. Namazzi tried to gain access to the Branches District to see her friend, but was rebuffed by the guards at every attempt. Following her disappointment, Namazzi joined another caravan as a guard, and so it went for nearly 20 years. After the death of her parents, Namazzi’s brother took over the family’s parchment business and began trading more aggressively with other settlements. He and Namazzi have formed a partnership in which he oversees production, and she makes sure their products make it to their intended markets safely. She only occasionally wonders if Endana ever thinks of her.
