Binta is a servant in King Saran’s palace and is Amari’s only friend. From the time they were young, the princess and the divîner were very close, imagining someday escaping the palace and seeing Orïsha together. Binta comforted Amari when her family was cruel to her, one day finding and gifting an old headdress to Amari. One day, King Saran brought Binta to the throne room to see the effects of the scroll firsthand. When it unleashed her ability to do light magic, Saran killed Binta immediately. In that moment Amari, watching from behind a curtain, steeled herself against her father and realized that she would need to fight back.
