Kama was born in the ancient homeland of the Flan people, but doesn't remember it. From what she could piece together, her father, a chief and warleader, apparently moved the family for safety after a group came through looking for the descendants of a lost noble. She doesn't know the details, but she wonders if there is some family secret that he is hiding.

Whatever the reason, though, she thrived in the new environment. When she was home, she learned the culture and traditions of her people, her father making weapon training and mastery mandatory and her mother teaching her how to make bows and work leather. When she wasn't home, she learned everything she could, mastering the language much better than her parents did, and utterly enjoying this new culture--learning new skills, and enjoying the sports and physical challenges of her new world, largely because they were excessively easy compared to what her parents asked of her.

Her father's pet name for her was always Zo, an affectionate Flan term roughly translated as chief's daughter, or perhaps "princess." When she started going to school, people called her Kama, but she always insisted on being called Zo Kama, which eventually became her name. Three syllable names in her parents' tribe were considered names of honor, and her mother laughingly told her when she reached the age of womanhood that she deserved the honor of three syllables, and although she still doesn't really know how it would have worked in the context of a real tribe, her parents granted her the third syllable, and always smiled when they used it.

She was an exotic beauty even before her parents left the lands of their ancestors (around age 4 or 5), though it was an unconscious beauty until she got older, and (like the native accent and the physical presence) became first a game, and then something that she learned to use as a tool to smooth over social situations. (Occasionally, it instead seemed to get her *into* trouble, but she was never hesitant to use brutal physical force to address those types of problems, that falling under her father's instruction on acceptable violence in self-defense, so such issues were typically short-lived.)

When she graduated from school she decided to become a detective, because in addition to her penchant for solving problems, she knew that she was good at it, and might be able to help people. One of the mysteries she really wants to solve is why her parents left the lands of their people.


Zokama is very tall for a woman, just a touch over 6 feet tall. She has long, dark hair, and fiery green eyes, and her physical stature is intimidating by its very nature. She looks big, and tough, and strong. Although she is really no tougher and not much stronger than an average person, she still looks it and acts like it.

On the other hand, although she has a tough, strong look, her normal language and speech is cultured and refined. She can do a perfect imitation of a Flan accent and more barbaric speech patterns, having learned from the best, but that's just a role. At home and with friends, she is a quite intelligent, literate, friendly, funny person.
