Shema in QfG1

Shema, which translates to "She of the Dance", is the lifemate of Shameen. She is the niece of Kiram, cousin of Sharaf, Sashanan, and Tiram, and aunt of Shallah. She is beautiful, by Katta standards, and agile -- a master at performing the Katta fertility dance. She is humble, however, despite her obvious charms. She cooks, entertains, and helps keep her husband's inns.


When Khaveen banished the Katta from Raseir, Shema fled with her husband to lands in the north where they hoped to find a prophesied Hero who would stop the evil taking over their homeland. Their journeys led them to Spielburg Valley and the town of Spielburg, where they established the Hero's Tale Inn.

Quest for Glory I: So You Want to be a Hero?Edit

Soon an unknown Hero arrived in the valley. He quickly befriended the Katta innkeepers, from whom he was renting a room, and their friend Abdulla Doo who was also staying in the inn due to his own misfortunes at the hands of the Spielburg Brigands. Once the Brigands were defeated, Shema and Shameen realized that the adventurer was a Hero and might even be the Hero who they had sought. As such, they brought him to Shapeir on Abdulla Doo's Magic Carpet.

Quest for Glory II - Shema's Dance

Shema's Dance

Once they had arrived in Shapeir, Shema and Shameen quickly set up the Katta Tail Inn and allowed the Hero to stay there for free. Shema also gratefully served the Hero the best foods she could cook. On occasion, she performed the Katta fertility dance for the patrons of the inn, accompanied by the music of Sitar. Despite how busy she was, she was extremely worried not to have heard from Sharaf. When the Hero left for Raseir, she made sure he had packed a Spare Change of Clothes. After the defeat of Ad Avis, she accompanied Shameen and Abdulla Doo to retrieve the Hero. At the ceremony held in his honor at the Shapeirian Palace, she spoke on his behalf.
