Achaka was an initiate attempting to join the Knights of Daventry


Background

A Knight to Remember

Arrival to Daventry

Achaka arrives in Daventry to participate in the Knight Tournament competing against Acorn, Manny, Whisper, and Graham. He seeks an audience with King Edward in hopes of helping his village, Itch-two-wey, that had been struck with a famine, leaving the villagers hungry (this may or may not have been true; Graham hears this information from Manny to possibly manipulate him). Whatever his reason he left his wife and family behind and came to Daventry.

Eye of a Hideous Beast

Graham finds Achaka in the Forest Well (depending on the player's choices, the reason Graham finds him in the well is either because he has been declared M.I.A from the Knight Tournament and is looking for his signature, or Graham enters the well on his own free will) and follows him to find out that he is after Hornswaggle's eye. Throughout their adventure in the cave they find that, despite it being a competition, they help each other and enjoy each other's company. It is in the well that Achaka teaches Graham how to properly use a bow. As they approach the sleeping dragon, Graham has the choice to tell Achaka to strike the dragon or escape.

Death

No matter what choice Graham makes, Achaka is viciously attacked by Hornswaggle, leading to his death. Graham manages to make it out alive, but feels grief and injustice at the loss of his friend.

Rubble Without A Cause

Legacy

After Graham has been crowned king, a bust of Achaka has been placed in the Castle Daventry hallway.

He was survived by his wife and child. He would later have a granddaughter he never met named Taskia.

The Good Knight

Afterlife

In Graham's final hours, Achaka appears to him and holds a conversation with him about what his final adventure should be. Achaka leaves with one final salute.

Personality and Traits

Personality

Achaka is the textbook definition of the strong, silent type as he can't speak English and instead speaks in his native tongue. Because of the language barrier, he also appears mysterious and withdrawn.

Bravery

Achaka is aligned to the Bravery path and is crucial to helping Graham obtain the Dragon's eye for that path in chapter 1.

Physical Traits

Achaka dons a purple like-poncho alongside his armor. His helmet holds two purple manes on the side pointing upwards to the center of his helmet.

Like the other knights, his actual face isn't shown.

Relationships

Graham

Achaka and Graham both befriend each other in the Forest Well. He is responsible for teaching Graham how to effectively use his bow. Achaka's death had a great impact on Graham, as he saw him as a mentor and a friend. Achaka means a lot to Graham as his spirit visits him even on his deathbed.

Daventry Knights

Acorn and Whisper both say that they do not know him well, but see him as a worthy competitor in the Knight Tournament. Whisper even admits that he would have eventually lost to Achaka.

Nicknames

  • Sir Ver of Arrows/Sir Ver of Arrows, Esquire
  • Achaka (part of the joke is no one seems to actually know his name, and he answers Achaka to number of different questions, including to the name of his homeland)
