Uhura is a female Simbani warrior, but desiring a child of her own, she left her native village, because according to Simbani custom, she was not allowed to be both a warrior and a wife. So Uhura ventured to Shapeir so that she could have a child out of wedlock and still return to her home village as a mother, yet remain an unmarried warrior. She chose one of the Sultan's guards as the father.
The four go Hero back to Tarna at the beginning of Quest for Glory III: Wages of War. She meets up with the Hero again in the Simbani Village and helps prepare him for his own initiation as a Simbani Warrior by teaching him spear throwing and on the balance beam (if he is a Fighter). Uhura also welcomes the Hero into her hut at night to talk about current events and explain the Simbani culture.
- Her name means "freedom" in Swahili.
- If the Hero attempts to kiss Uhura in QFG2, the game comments that it would probably anger her, and that you wouldn't want to see her mad.
- If the Hero attempts to give Uhura flowers in QFG2, she accepts them claiming they will be useful for salad.
- If you ask her about home, she says her land and people many months travel from Shapeir. However, she will not respond to a question about "Tarna". This may indicate that she may have originally not been connected to Rakeesh's home.
