The cephalid Kamiz is the former Obscura spymaster in New Capenna.


Kamiz served as Raffine's right hand and Queza's mentor. Nothing goes on in the city without her knowing it, and nothing is published in the papers without her supplying the rumors.[1] She's got every citizen in her back pocket, and they don't even know her name.

The bioluminescent markings around her eyes pulse blue-green. She wears a navy trench coat embellished with gold, a throat amulet to report visions, and a rune in her ear to receive updates. She personally warded the Cloud Spire, Raffine's headquarters.


Kamiz started off trying to be a journalist, 'til she found out every paper was printing complete bunk at the command of whichever clients had the deepest pockets.[2] Always the bookish type, she never took to reporting anyway. Them interview subjects always gave her funny looks, what with those glowing blue eyes of hers. She was downright sick of all them stares.

So, she signed up with the Obscura with the promise she could do her job outta sight from prying eyes. On her very first assignment, she got her spies to blackmail a corrupt politician into stepping down from office. Worked her way up the organisation right quick after that. Shot right to the top after she invented a spell that let her see through walls. Not long after, she ran the whole Obscura network, gathering info from sewer to skyscraper.[3]

Siding with the Adversary in his revolt against the families, she was wounded by Jinnie Fay after attempting an ambush following the Crescendo attack.[4]
