She has grayish-blue fur, pointed ears that protruded to the sides of the face, long fingers, a wide flat nose, and a tangled mess of white and grey hair tied in the back and cascading over her shoulders.[1]

Personality[edit | edit source]

Jumnda was welcoming with Mighty Nein. She trusted unknown mercanaries after Iron Shepherds slew her close family.

Biography[edit | edit source]

Background[edit | edit source]

Three days prior to meeting the Mighty Nein, their twenty-person clan celebrated young Duma's coming of age, enjoying roast boar around their fire. At that point, "the murderers" came and slew Toffah and Wolya with arrows as they danced together. Some like Fennis died protecting vulnerable members and the elderly like Jumnda. Though many died or were captured, some managed to escape their nets.[2]

"Found & Lost" (2x26)[edit | edit source]

When the Mighty Nein met her she was tending to Ombo at a makeshift camp within the Crispvale Thicket. Her clan had lost quite a few of its members to the Iron Shepherds, and so although Ombo was not her son she was looking after him. She identified herself as a healer/medicine woman who had natural balms, herbs and remedies for helping with various types of ailments. As part of the small clan of Guiatao, she wielded some magic ability to penetrate the mind of foes in a sparkle of colors.[3] Their camp consisted of a thatch hovel built in the space where a thin tree had fallen and leaned up against a thicker sturdier tree.

She allowed the party to stay with her for a night and share a herbal tea with them. It had healing properties and when consumed also improved an individual's perception granting them advantage over an eight hour period.[4] At first thinking her to be possibly the individual responsible for the children being abducted in Nogvurot, they approached her with caution. Seeing that she wasn't a threat, the party exchanged word of the trouble they had been facing, at which point she asked that the party find Nila or recover her body had she had fallen at the hands of the Iron Shepherds. To aid them in their task, she gifted the party with a dried moss, which when spending a minute administering topically on a wound or ingested had the properties of a greater healing potion.[5]

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Jumnda and Ombo appeared to have a mother-child type relationship although Jumnda was not his actual mother.
