Azaze Yopali is the headwoman of Moharrin village on the Battle Islands. Besides being headwoman Azaze also owns an inn and nobody staying at her place goes hungry. Her inn is also a place for people to meet.
Headwoman Azaze is very stern, and Evvy wonders why she was not born as a Queen, for that seems to be a better title for her than just merely "Headwoman". She runs the town with a strict hand, but is also fair and wise.
Azaze is quite tall. She has black eyes and brows, although her hair is henna-red and pinned up in a knot. She wears plain clothes, but comments on her looks that a emperor with all his silk couldn't look more regal than Azaze in her cotton dress.
Her first and so far only appearance is in Melting Stones. She is a minor character in the plot, however is still crucial to the setting. Though the story is actually about Evvy, the town that she, Rosethorn, Myrrhtide and Luvo visit is in a fatal position, as it is set next to an ancient volcano --Mount Grace-- that is ready to erupt.
