My name is Chuami, and I serve as Kurgum's assistant but in reality, he serves me.
Chuami (チュアミ, Chuami?) is a character, the narrator, and main protagonist in Final Fantasy X -Will-. She is Kurgum's childhood friend, a member of the Spira Council and, according to her mother, Auron's long-lost daughter.
The artwork of Chuami depicts her as a young woman with long hair, styled into two loose braids that frame her face and a fringe on the right side of her forehead.
If they know, they shouldn't just crawl into a hole. They should go out and try to live. They think they maintain the peace through prayer? Talk about delusional...
Chuami is a stubborn 17-year-old with a forthright realist attitude. Unlike Kurgum, she's outspoken and direct. Chuami doesn't sugarcoat anything and often speaks with brutal honesty, making herself come across as condescending and insensitive. She can lose her temper whenever she is annoyed or feels that she is being disrespected, and doesn't like people laughing at her. Chuami's blunt and argumentative demeanor causes her to enter confrontations, especially on her views on the Yevoners and her supposed relation to Auron, and she doesn't shy away from using strength to get a point across. She can be very judgmental of others, making conclusions based on her first impression of them or their overall behavior. She hates it when people don't focus on issues she considers important and turn their attention to other problems she deems minor in comparison. Chuami is also fairly perceptive, able to see things that go unnoticed by others, evident as she listens to how people talk and reads their facial expressions and body language, shown in how she is the only one to notice Tidus's weakened state as he tries to hide it.
Despite her rudeness, Chuami shows sensitivity when she sees a father and daughter talk to the departed mother's spirit as she believes it cruel for someone having to say goodbye to a dead parent twice, and hates the idea of the reunion being disrupted, seeing how happy they are.
I think Spira is peaceful enough without your prayers. Sure, there's trouble here and there, but the Council takes care of most of them.
Sometime after the Yevoners organization forms, a commotion caused by hard-line members broke out. During the chaos, Chuami's mother—a Yevoners sympathizer—was impaled through the chest by a spear and killed by Yevoner hunters, orphaning Chuami and leaving her with a strong animosity towards the group.
Chuami and Kurgum reside in Bevelle but are being sent to Besaid by Baralai to meet with Yuna. On the Bevelle Stadium Road, they meet Tidus but when Chuami shakes his hand she notices he has little energy and might be injured, although he is trying to hide it. Reaching Besaid on their airship, Chuami and Kurgum meet Lulu and Wakka. As Wakka takes them through the Cloister of Trials to Yuna, who now spends her time praying for Spira's peace in the temple much to Chuami's chagrin, she argues with Wakka about the Yevoners' way of life, believing they should go out and live instead of praying and clinging to the old ways. After meeting Yuna, Kurgum shows her a movie sphere with a recording of two shoopufs at the Moonflow. The shoopuf was the last of its kind but another mysteriously reappeared one morning, causing Yuna to believe the shoopuf had been "beckoned".
Kurgum asks Yuna to accompany him and Chuami to Bevelle and address the Council. When Yuna refuses, Chuami tells her about the injured Tidus, compelling Yuna to take action, with Chuami noticing Yuna being more concerned about Tidus than Spira's problems. Kurgum insists Chuami tell the others that she is Auron's daughter but she wants to hold off as she fears they would start fawning over her. When Lulu overhears Chuami, she confronts her. Chuami tells Lulu her mother told her stories about Auron as she was too young to remember him. Lulu says Chuami doesn't resemble Auron and that many people have claimed to be children of his, Jecht, and Braska. Chuami says she takes after her mother and asks Lulu if she's calling her mother a liar, but Lulu says Chuami would remember Auron and that he would have mentioned having children since he wasn't the type of person to hide such a thing.
Kurgum and Chuami's airship needs repairs and they, Yuna, and Wakka journey to Bevelle on foot. Stopping at the Moonflow, they see the shoopufs and a crowd of onlookers where half of the people are illusions created by the pyreflies. They see a father and his daughter, Maelu, with the illusion of her mother, who answers Maelu's request for them to go home together, which stuns the group since the illusions normally can't hear or speak. Kurgum tries to send the illusions to the Farplane, but Yuna says they don't have the right to interfere with the reunion.
At Bevelle, they find Sin has been reactivated, possibly beckoned by someone's wish. Yuna rushes to meet with Tidus, angering Chuami. Yuna had previously told Chuami that Tidus is her boyfriend, but when Chuami and Kurgum eavesdrop on the conversation between the two it seems they are breaking up. Yuna is jealous of Tidus's friend Marphie, but soon tells him she doesn't care anymore and has already got another person she likes. Tidus asks who it is, but Yuna tells him it's someone he doesn't know and leaves. Kurgum tells Chuami they should split up because he's in love with Yuna. Chuami is angry and confused, but Kurgum tells her it is something that only summoners can understand.
The two part ways with Chuami returning to Besaid with Tidus and Kurgum staying with Yuna and Wakka in Bevelle. When Tidus asks Lulu about Yuna's new love interest, Lulu says she thought Tidus would know Yuna better and tells him to figure it out himself. She says that if something else can be brought back, then Sin's revival shouldn't be surprising. After Tidus figures out the meaning behind Lulu's words, they depart with Chuami in tow. On a ship with Lulu and Tidus, Chuami asks him why he wants to accompany Yuna and the others on her new journey to defeat Sin even though she dumped him, and Tidus answers he had promised to be with her forever.
