Akhnan ibn Nazzir was a Bazhir and member of the Bloody Hawk tribe. He served as the shaman for the tribe for an unknown period of time.

Biography

Early life

It is unknown when Akhnan became the shaman for the tribe. He was able to pass the Ordeal of Shamans, even though he was not especially powerful.

He noticed that three of the tribe's children, Kara, Kourrem, and Ishak, had the Gift. Rather than train them or even admit that they had magic, he told the tribe that the children were cursed.

Meeting Alanna

Akhnan was immediately in favor of execution upon meeting Alanna of Trebond and Coram Smythesson. He disapproved of her non-traditional behavior as a woman; in turn, she disapproved of his insistence that the children were cursed rather than Gifted. She tried to get through to him a number of times, but he did not respond well. At one point, he attempted to make a Gate of Idramm, which would have destroyed the entire village, and perhaps the Great Southern Desert as a whole. The only reason he was stopped was because Faithful warned Alanna about his doings.

He later took the crystal sword and tried to kill Alanna with it. She created a shield that mirrored whatever spell he sent at her, so he was technically killed by his own magic. As ibn Nazzir died while attempting to kill Alanna, she had to take his place as shaman of the Bloody Hawk, or leave the people unprotected in the desert.
