Zhamin is a black tiger that was formerly bonded to Lishay's brother, Hanzan. After Hanzan died, Zhamin became wild and aggressive. Lishay then loses her own spirit animal, Zhosur in a battle with the Devourer, and because she and Zhamin had already been close, Zhamin became Lishay's new spirit animal.
Zhamin is first seen attacking Uraza. When Lishay calls his name, he runs off, and she introduced him as her twin brother's spirit animal, and he had gone mad because Hanzan was killed in a skirmish with the Conquerors.
Zhamin was said to be Lishay's weakness because the bond she shared with him.
