a lil' scared Zuri, somebody hug her D:
Zuri's not a warrior like many of the other villagers, she's more like a "watchman". She spends the day hiding beneath the sands or sandstone tunels with her sister, warning when a large group of people is coming to the village, if they're friends or foes or if they're important, so the villagers can prepare themselves and be one step ahead. When she's on her own on the border areas, she's not confident enough to come out of her safe "sand bubble" underground. She had a bad experience once with a green mage djinn that took her out of the sand and threatened her to take her water bag, she couldn't call for help since she's mute, but luckily as soon as she handed the bag, the djinn let her go (they only wanted the water for obvious reasons). No harm was done, but she became a little more cautious when being on her own, and barely pops out her head behind new people instead of going out entirely as she used to.
She's fine tho! she's capable of deffending herself if necessary, but she doesn't like to harm others, and hinding underground like a diglett has worked perfectly for now :33 she's just a bit of a scaredy cat when it comes to outsiders that look too intimidating or armed.
