Hair: Light Brown/Dyed Red Mohawk
Eyes: Reflective Green
Weight: 290 lbsDescription:
Sifiso would be an elder of his Khan were his life not saved by the Sultan when he was young. Age however has not slowed Sifiso. He may be showing the slight gathering of weight that good food and old age brings, but there are few as strong, wily and tough as the veteran of the Ingonyame Guard. His long limbs are as thick as cypress trunks and his skill with the scimitar is unmatched. Like all of the guard he maintains the Domadh warrior Mohawk mane dyed red with his shaved scalp. His age is shown by the white hair about his lips, and chin. The fur on his belly has changed as well with white outnumbering the tan of youth.One Unique Thing:
Sifiso was rescued by the Sultan when they were both young men and Sifiso gave the young Sultan a life debt in return. He served as a guide and bodyguard to the Sultan for many years. Personality:
Sifiso is dedicated to the safety of Sha’ib and the current Sultan. He is serious and severe when dealing with his own soldiers as befitting a Chief of the Khans, though he has no royal blood. Away from work he is introspective, even philosophical. Sifiso does enjoy his drink be it coffee or the strong, gruel-like alcohol urwaga that is brewed by he and his men. Sifiso can surprise others with his intelligence in council and his kindness around children despite his fierce look.Skills:
Scimitar (Two-Handed) combat, Unarmed Combat, Military Tactics, Drinking, TrackingResidence:
Ingonyame Guard barracks near the Trail of Sighs.History:
When Sifiso was a young warrior he found himself separated from his Khan on a scouting mission against a tribe of Gnolls. He was ambushed by a group of warriors and rescued by a caravan lead by the young Sultan of Sha’ib. Thankful and ashamed Sifiso granted the Sultan a life debt.
Since that time Sifiso has served as a scout in the Sultan’s army, his personal body guard and a captain of the city guard. As more young Domadh came to Sha’ib, Sifiso gathered them and trained them in the arts of Hadaree warfare and technology. The Sultan formed the Ingonyame Guard from these lone Domadh and placed Sifiso in charge of their training. The Ingonyame Guard is known and feared by the enemies of Sha’ib. They have fought off Bedu raiders, Domadh Khans and even an invasion of Undead from Hekata. They are highly decorated servants and warriors.
All of the Ingonyame Guard have converted to the worship of Asaheem, though their worship would be looked upon as heresy by the clerics if not for the Sultan’s protection as they incorporate the rites of their ancestors into the worship of the Jann of Light and Air.Equipment:
Scimitar (Two Handed)
Supplies as needed from Armory.
