|“||The girl giggled fetchingly, and gave her companion an exasperated if not fond look.||”|
Reshmi is travelling with a companion, a girl named Razia. The two appear to be in a romantic relationship.
Passepartout meets Reshmi and Razia in Quelimane. He can flatter Reshmi, to Razia's distaste, and the pair will tell him about Emperor Cetshwayo. Reshmi will insist he is a sorcerer, claiming she knows because her aunt is courting a Zulu warrior. After their brief conversation, Passepartout takes his leave.
Reshmi is bubbly, cheerful and perhaps quite naive, a contrast to Razia's wariness.
