Qafi was a Bazhir convict who was sent to work in the refugee camp known as Haven in 460 HE as punishment. He lived among the other convicts and was led by Sergeant Vidur and Sergeant Oluf, regular army soldiers. Qafi was sentenced to Haven for horse thieving.
Qafi saved Merric of Hollyrose's life during the second attack in June of 460. He died in the fighting, but fought "like a wolf", and kept Sir Merric from being hacked to pieces.
