Amara Sigatar Khura'in served as the Queen of the Kingdom of Khura'in and the mother of Nahyuta Sahdmadhi and Rayfa Padma Khura'in. She disguised herself as Nayna, her daughter's personal aide as a means of protection from further assassination attempts.

As the Queen of Khura'inEdit


Amara and Dhurke in their happier days.

Twenty five years ago, Amara ruled the Kingdom of Khura'in with peace and impartiality. She fell in love and married with Dhurke Sahdmadhi, a defense attorney, and gave birth to her first son Nahyuta. Excelled in both her kindness and immense spiritual power, the people of Khura'in virtually regarded her as a goddess, with some even claimed her to be the reincarnation of the Holy Mother herself. All of this fueled her sister, Ga'ran Sigatar Khura'in, with great envy, resulted in the latter setting plan in motion to destroy Amara and her loved ones and taking the throne for herself.

Attempt on her life Edit

Main article: Assassination attempt of Amara Sigatar Khura'in

During Jove Justice's performance, Amara was drugged and a fire broke out at her residence, seemingly killing her to the public. However, in reality, she survived, but was coerced to stay hidden by Ga'ran.

 In hiding Edit

Main article: The Foreign Turnabout & The Rite of Turnabout

She would go to stay in hiding to protect herself from further assassination attempts, pretending to be dead and giving Ga'ran the throne. She stayed hidden for thirteen years until her husband, Dhurke Sahdmadhi, now a revolutionary on the run, rescued her from the royal residence. They lived together in peace and had a child, Rayfa, until Ga'ran found them, and kidnapped Amara and Rayfa.


Disguised as Nayna.

Amara then disguised herself as Nayna, a personal aide to her daughter, Rayfa, to protect herself from further assassination attempts, as well as to keep an eye on her daughter. With Ga'ran mostly busy with ruling the country, Amara in the guise of Nayna raised Rayfa. Amara would often come at Rayfa's request, and do mundane tasks such as removing her daughter's cloak and staff or informing her about certain subjects that the young girl had limited knowledge about.

 Reveal Edit

Main article: Turnabout Revolution

In mid-May, Amara, as Nayna, was called as a witness, to testify about her actions during Inga Karkhuul Khura'in's death. During the trial, Justice was able to prove that Amara survived the assassination from twenty years ago with a photo of her with an infant containing a tome with the Defiant Dragons' emblem, blowing her cover and forcing to reveal her true self. Fearing for her daughter's reputation and safety, she tried to frame herself for Inga's death, but not only was that proven to be impossible, but that the blackmail Ga'ran was using was based on false premises. Near the end of the trial, she was shot in the stomach, but survived the ordeal. After the trial, she would go on to help Rayfa rule the country until Rayfa learned how to channel spirits.

Personality Edit

Amara is a merciful and wise queen. She is very polite and kind to a fault, even against her adversaries. Even though she would often state that Dhurke had tricked her with his "silver tongue," she truly cared for and loved him, despite initially believing that he intended to kill her. She places her trust in her family above all else, and would go to the ends of the earth to protect them. However, when angered, she would become quite frightening, scaring many people into pleading for forgiveness.

As Nayna, she was ready and willing to help Rayfa at a moment's notice, portraying herself as an old woman with a sharp tongue. She had many sayings and mannerism (such as calling people nincompoops) that Rayfa would inherit from her.


  • "Amara" (Sanskrit: अमर) is a name meaning "immortal". This relates to the fact that she survived an attempt on her life twice (although the first time was not meant to kill her).
  • Her alias, Baaya (バアヤ) is a title meaning "granny."
  • Her English alias Nayna comes from her Japanese alias, in this case, it means "nanny".


  • Like the Holy Mother , Amara's design appears to be based on Guanyin, an East Asian bodhisattva associated with compassion and is commonly known as the Goddess of Mercy.
  • Amara bears some similarities to Mimi Miney. Both were presumed deceased after incidents involving fires, both received burns from the incidents and both at some point disguised themselves as their respective younger sisters.
    • She can also be compared to Misty Fey, as they were both holding supreme spiritual power thus making their sisters jealous of them. They also took on new identities to hide their true selves from the world.
