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.23


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


Vanaran traditional martial training often includes the urumi.6
