Early Life

Born

Mapábyo’s original family was a group of merchants from the southern desert. On a trip through the eastern parts of the desert, they were attacked by brigands. Shimusogo Hyonèku rescued the family but her parents were later killed when the attackers continued to harry the group.

Hyonèku decided to adopt Mapábyo and brought her home, a harrowing journey since the attackers continued to attack.

Sand and Blood

In the beginning of Sand and Blood, Rutejìmo catches Mapábyo playing on top of Opōgyo. He gives her a short lecture before helping her bring supplies up her father at the lookout point in the Shimusogo Valley.

Unlike most members of the Shimusògo, Mapábyo’s skin is a deep black in color.

Mapábyo, Hyonèku’s adopted daughter, slid off. Like all desert folk, she had dark skin and green eyes. But where she was as dark as obsidian rock, Rutejìmo was the softer brown of sun-bright soil. She wore a simple dress of white, which was startling against her dark skin. A bright yellow ribbon cinched it around her waist, and she had a matching one in her long, black hair.

Later, Gemènyo would tease Rutejìmo about her.

Rutejìmo grew more embarrassed as Gemènyo listed all the girls around his age. He was old enough that he was uncomfortable with the differences between male and female. He didn’t like to be reminded about his awkwardness.

“You know, if you are waiting for Mapábyo, you’re going to wait a long time. She’s at least nine years younger than—”

“Gemènyo!” The blush burned hotly on his cheeks.
