Minak al-Zafyi ran a small shop within the Grand Bazaar of Huzuz in 1367 DR.[note 1][1]


Minak was a tall and handsome elf.[1]


Minak sold exotic animals within the Grand Bazaar from his small tent. Customers could purchase monkeys, songbirds, falcons, partridges, cats, dogs, and peacocks. His most prized animal was a young elephant bird. Though he only kept smaller animals in his tent, he boasted that he could acquire any animal that a customer asked about.[1]

He judged people based upon how his animals reacted to them. Thus, anyone well-received by his animals usually got a better deal.[1]


Minak owned a ring of mammal control and a net of ensnarement.[1]
