Naja Salaheem and her trademark Morning Star.

Naja Salaheem (ナジャ・サラヒム, Naja Sarahimu?) is the president and leader of the mercenary company Salaheem's Sentinels in Final Fantasy XI. She is one of the major NPCs of Aht Urhgan and a driving force in the storyline for the expansion Treasures of Aht Urhgan.

Naja grew up in the Gha Naboh Matriarchate on the Olzhirya continent, far to the south of her current home. She is always pictured with a large morning star which she waves about with bravado while giving her melodramatic and often blatantly condescending speeches.

President Salaheem is interested in, above all, profit and notoriety. She makes it quite obvious that anyone who works for her is just a pawn, addressing players in her employ directly as such. She has little in terms of patience, is very arbitrary in her rules and reward, and seems to be prone to wild mood swings.
