Shameen in QfG1

Shameen, which translates to He of the Lion, is a Katta innkeeper by trade and the lifemate of Shema. He is the cousin of Sharaf and the uncle of Scoree and Shallah, and one of the best friends of Abdulla Doo. He is known for his generosity and patience. He also knows much of what goes on around him, as he listens to all of his customers.


Shameen and Shema lived in Raseir until Ad Avis supplanted Emir Arus al-Din and put his puppet Ali al-Din Hasan on the throne. Khaveen took the opportunity to force the Katta, who he despised, out of the city. Among the refugees fleeing from the city were Shameen and Shema. Knowing a little of a prophecy concering a Hero from the North, the two traveled in that direction in search of a Hero.
