Holy symbol of Nalinivati.

A coil of steel appearing to be similar to a coiled whip, the urumi (pronounced er-OO-mee)[1] is a slashing weapon capable of carving up flesh as well as any sword. The coil is built for durability and flexibility, allowing it to hold a sharp edge, while still able to manipulate its shape as needed. An urumi can be used to attack opponents next to the wielder, or up to 10 feet away.[2][3]


Nalinivati, the patron naga goddess of the nagaji, chooses the urumi as one of her favoured weapons.[4] This favoured status of the weapon by Nalinivati's followers led to a wider popularity for the urumi across the Inner Sea region.[5]
