"She was not a lynx or a spider or even the Wraith. She was Inej Ghafa, and her future was waiting above."
Do you dare to haunt the rooftops of Ketterdam? For one that does not announce themself before they are ready to (on their terms and theirs alone) much like Inej Ghafa herself. When and only when deciding to make an appearance, does the incense of the faith of the Saints settle as a comforting support. Unwavering, familiar, and all together soothing as an unshakable groundwork to spark sharply with the metal of dedicated knives. It is in the true strike of Sankt Petyr's arrow and Sankta Alina's light, the protective slash of Sankta Marya's shelter and Sankta Anastasia's selflessness, the inevitable cleave of Sankt Vladimir's fate, and the pierce of Sankta Lizabeta's rose thorns, each an extension of the Suli that wields them with flawless grace. But to those that are kith and kin it is the sweetness of blackberry that weaves along the blade's edge in perfect compliment for the lengths one is willing to go to for love. The whisper of myrrh lingers long after the Wraith has left; be it to wander the Long Road or Open Sea, it is freedom for of the self and ensuring the same for others no matter the cost. Mati en sheva yelu.
Inspired by the character Inej Ghafa from Leigh Bardugo's Grishaverse series. She is played by Amita Suman in the Netflix series, Shadow & Bone.
