Main article: Catti-brie

Ruqiah was a member of the Desai tribe, part of the nomadic Bedine. She was the reincarnation of Catti-brie.[1]

DescriptionEdit

Like her former incarnation but despite her parents' darker complexions, Ruqiah had thick, light brown hair with red highlights and blue eyes.[5][6]

Ruqiah had two spellscars, one on each arm. On her left forearm was a seven-pointed star on a circle of red (the symbol of Mystra); on her right forearm was a unicorn's head (the symbol of Mielikki).[7]

HistoryEdit

Ruqiah was born in Anauroch on the spring equinox (19 Ches[4]) in 1463 DR to Niraj and Kavita.[5] At age five, her blooming magic and secret garden caught the attention of the Netherese lord Parise Ulfbinder, who sent Shadovar agents Untharis and Alpirs De'Noutess to kidnap her.[8] They failed and were killed by Ruqiah, who fled soon after to protect her parents, who practiced magic, from the Netherese.[1][7]

In 1469 DR, Ruqiah was taken in by Lady Avelyere to be trained in the magic arts at her Coven in the Shade Enclave,[9] where she remained for ten years until 1479 DR, when Lady Avelyere discovered her true identity.[10] She then fled to Longsaddle, where she ceased using her name, preferring the alias Delly Curtie instead.[11] In 1482 DR, she settled in Bremen in Icewind Dale.[12] The following year, Spider Parrafin (Regis) joined her in Bremen,[13] where they bided their time until the spring equinox of 1484 DR. At this time, they met up with Drizzt Do'Urden, saving his life from a mortal injury.[14] It was at this time that Ruqiah returned to her original name of Catti-brie.[15]

RelationshipsEdit

Niraj and KavitaEdit

Ruqiah had a close relationship with her parents, Niraj and Kavita, who learned of her nature as Chosen of Mielikki in 1468 DR. Her father's nickname for her was "Zibrija," a type of flower that grew in the desert.[2]

Lady AvelyereEdit

Despite a rough start, Lady Avelyere viewed Ruqiah as one of her favorite students and gave her preferential treatment, allowing her to visit her parents once a tenday.[16] However, she was not averse to using magic to pry information out of Ruqiah.[10]
