Family: Jabin (husband), Azize (son), and Diyero (stepson).

The second wife of Jabin, Sauda is Diyero's stepmother and Azize's mother. She is often even-tempered and a balance to Jabin's distrust of outsiders.

Though Diyero is not her son by birth, Duendo culture calls for Sauda to treat him as if he were her own child. Even without this social expectation, Sauda is already fond of her stepson. Well aware of the void left in her husband's heart from the slaver attack, Sauda is glad Diyero's return has brought some measure of healing to Jabin - and has given her son, Azize, the brother he always wanted to know.



Sauda is not a member of the Maawio-Atatu, but is instead from the Nngware-Atatu, a neighboring tribe. Her village also suffered an attack from the slaver raid, and so her tribe joined up with Jabin's to help recover. She met Jabin while helping tend to the wounded of the attack - Jabin was one of the men in her care.

Despite his dark state of mind at the time, Jabin slowly befriended Sauda, and kept in touch with her after she returned to her own people. The two would meet a few times a month in her village and barter goods. After a few years, Jabin proposed to her. While motivated by pressure from his village to start a family again, Sauda agreed to marry him out of love - though she doubted her feelings would ever be reciprocated.

Eventually, Jabin did return her feelings - though he didn't realize them until after their son, Azize was born. Now Sauda lives a quiet and content life with her family.



  • The reason Sauda's hair is dyed in streaks is mostly cosmetic, but does have roots in tradition: In her tribe, the adult women didn't dye all their hair until after they got married. Though Sauda is no longer unwed, she and Jabin found they preferred her hair in streaks, and she kept it that way.
