Habari gani! My name is Marjani Nunda. I am the daughter of the sultan's youngest son from The Nunda, Eater of People. My father was the seventh son of a sultan. He was not much liked by his father. But one day, the sultan's cat killed a calf. It went on to kill a cow, a donkey, a horse, and even a child. It soon ate whatever came by it - it came to be known as the Nunda, eater of people. But then the Nunda killed three of the sultan's sons. But Dad was able to trick the Nunda and he slew it, and there was much rejoicing.
My dad is now the sultan, and he's got a wife and kids. I am the fourth of six children. I have three older brothers and two younger sisters.
At Ever After High, I often go hunting in the Enchanted Forest. I always say that I'm "hunting the most dangerous game". I use a spear for doing it. Still, I keep a quota on how many animals I take so I don't take too many (and since some of the students dislike hunting). I'm very much a tomboy, and I describe myself as boisterous, brave, and strong-willed. I can also be awfully outspoken. I tend to hang around mostly boys, though I do get along with girls too, including my roommate Rosina.
I've found a nice boyfriend named Salim Ettemsuch. It was his roommate Viktor who hooked us up. Salim is very quiet, and he's nice and polite. He enjoys my company and loves having an outspoken girl around.
I consider myself a Royal since I really enjoy hunting and want to follow my father in the world of animal warfare.
