Nozumi Takahasho was a soldier of the army of General Goyat Nagumo. In 1358 DR, during the army's journey through the Kutuk Valley he was captured by Taring savages. Nozumi managed to escape but was infected by a variety of jungle diseases that nearly destroyed his mind. He managed to get back to Suijeng just before the Komite. He wandered the city exhausted, weakened, starving, and thirsty. If questioned, he tried to tell his story but couldn't remember the details, eventually collapsing to the ground, sobbing and shaking.
