My Everything. The one I will die to protect.
Mother and Alpha, she is the guiding light of our family.
A native of Guinea-Bissau, Ndjiia is a homid born Ajaba of the Dawn as well as Rokea kin. She is a strong, confident and fierce woman. A warrior to rival any other. She had just finished her rite of passage when she met Adelino Cabral. Taking him to bed, she was amused by his submissive nature. She boasted and bragged about how easy he was to catch until his parents left for Portugal. She found the entire ordeal amusing but had duties of her own to keep her occupied, such as defending the lands from encroaching industrialization.
Eventually, Ndjiia decided the best way to beat an enemy that seemed to exist as an idea was to gather new ideas. She began studying abroad, eventually ending up in Portugal where she once again met Adelino. Finding the young man to be a pleasant diversion, she took him as a lover, but expected him to go when she didn't want him around. That is until she saw him watching her when she took one of his friends to her bed. She pretended not to notice, but did enjoy the look of pain on his face.
When he finally confronted her about it, she demanded he tell her why he waited so long. Stumped, embarrassed and a little aroused, he confessed the pleasure he felt from her being with other men. He suggested they return to Guinea-Bissau so that her family and their childhood friends would know what had become of them. When there, the stories spread and it wasn't long before many men would come to her, sometimes on the same night. But she was still a proud Ajaba and only selected the time and place and men she wanted. Even when one of those men had been recognized by her own mother as Ndjiia's father. But by then, it was too late.
Eventually, Adelino asked her to marry him. She teased him for months before accepting. Months in which her belly began to swell with twins. Finally, when it could be hidden no more, she agreed and they were wed.
Father. A bond stronger than blood.
Born in Guinea-Bissau, Adelino was of Portuguese descent and a Bastet kin. While living in the African nation, he "went native" and at the age of fourteen met an Ajaba girl to him he gave his virginity. His parents shortly thereafter, having been scandalized when they found out, decided he really needed to learn what it meant to be Portuguese so carted him off.
While at university, he met the girl once more and they resumed their relationship. He soon caught her cheating with one of his friends but said nothing. There was almost a year of it before he finally said, "If you're going to do it, let's go back home so people will really know." This sparked a confrontation where he told her he wasn't leaving her but rather wanted her to enjoy it, he just wanted to make sure that everyone important in their lives knew that he wasn't man enough for her.
Returning to Guinea-Bissau, it didn't take long for her to find others. A wild night of debauchery in which all the men of two villages and an island came to their home and used her. The people who knew them, and some who didn't, would talk behind his back about his unfaithful woman. There were whispers about his lack of manhood and some even suggested that he might be female. A few times he was attacked, but she would come to his rescue when she knew about it. Finally, Adelino asked her to marry him. The guests knew, that as they got married and he took her last name as his, he was not the father of her children.
