Amina bint-Walid, born as Amina Dam, is the currently reigning Ilkhana of Sarepta, mother to Prince Mahmut ibn-Idris and the Twins, Princess Siham bint-Idris and Princess Aischa bint-Idris.

She suffers from Cervical Cancer with metastases. Amina-Ilkhana is also known as a lover of horses, even if she is not a very skilled equestrian sportswoman.


Born into a common household, Amina bint-Walid was originally Amina Dam, daughter to a butler and a Handmaiden at the Palace of the Golden Hall in Ugarit. There, she played with the later Idris-Ilkhan while they were both children.

Ever since their marriage in 1995, they had tried to get children, but all of their efforts were fruitless, either not resulting in pregnancies or in stillborns. In 2004, the public rejoiced as the Palace of the Golden Hall announced, that Amina was pregnant, giving birth to Prince Mahmut ibn-Idris in 2005.

In 2006, she was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer with metastases, during her pregnancy with the twins Siham and Aischa. Untreated due to the pregnancy, she almost died and the whole ordeal left her severely weakened, both due to the cancer and due to the twins being born by Caesarean Section.

It broke her heart, when her husband sent their son Mahmut to his Uncle in Utica in 2010, to live at the Palace of the Azure Hall, under care of the Sultana, all the more she loves his regular visits and ensured, that a good Handmaiden came along. When his sisters followed him to Utica in 2019, as students at the Haram Girls' Academy, it almost broke her heart all over again, but she had faith... and the permission by the Ilkhana of Utica to regularly visit them all, even buying a small house near the city (and near the Horse Training Grounds of the HGA and TBA).

During the 2020/2021 Pandemic of COVID-19 in Kyrenaia, Amina toured the hospitals in the Ilkhanate of Sarepta, spoke with relatives and medical personell and appealed to the people to keep calm and prudent. While her touring was, at first, seen as a weird thing, she soon claimed her space in the COVID-Response of the Ilkhanate - even if she had to support her people through face shields, panes of glass and similar measures.


Amina always had an air of motherly warmth around her, mixed with heartiness and wit. She is known for the attention she has on details surrounding her, including especially her children. She has an emotional empathy,

However, she is also a very peaceful woman.

Amina is an avid equestrian, but not very good as a horsewoman. She loves to ride, but she does not do so competitively. She gave this passion to her children and Soraya Geal.
