"My skin may be dark, but my heart has been filled with the purest Light of Enaora..."
Dark Elf ? Not exactly... Though he looks like a typical Dökkálfar, Zamjhee is actually a Black Tuatha, a "white" Elf born with the curse of Dark Elves. In a family of noble Tuatha, it should have meant... death... Many black tuatha babies are indeed killed by their own parents, ashamed of such curse. Luckily, Lady Shaelz'drynn devoted her life to save those inocent victims, so she managed to prevent Zamjhee's parents from killing him by sending two of her loyal friends to his rescue.
From this day, the young Elf had been raised in Libra, in which he learnt respect, solidarity and benevolence... but also where he could develop his fighting skills with the weapon masters. Zamjhee was talented enough to be chosen by Shaelz'drynn to become the bodyguard of the High Priestess, Elderinë, a young Tuatha lady who had received death threats. Obvisouly, with his appearance, many people soon blamed the Lady of Libra for her choice. At first only
Elderinë and her father deeply trusted him and he had to go through mockery and hatred... while protecting the priestess. Zamjhee was close to abandon on several occasions, however his affection for Elderinë preventing him from coming back to Libra. In his heart, he was sure that she deeply needed him to survive. At a point, he was almost able to understand the plots surrounding her but both were lured into a trap, during which the priestess was killed and Zamjhee, left for dead. He was cured by Elderinë's father, not blaming him for his daughter's death... But the young Tuatha felt responsible and sweared he would never dare to look at him straight in the eyes until the day he finds Elderinë's murderer.
So Zamjhee left Libra and became a mercenary in the same guild as Xynmiz (and later Ereshkidal)... His missions as an outlet for his shame and regret... Waiting, investigating... Never forgiving, never forgetting...
