In the books Edit

Prudence Edit

Gahiji is in attendance at the ball at the beginning of Prudence, supposedly to keep an eye on Miss Tunstell.

Imprudence Edit

Gahiji had been sent by Ivy to guard her son when Percy and Quesnel got into a scuffle, leading to a face off between werewolves and vampires.

Competence Edit

In this book we learn that Gahiji is the vampire who taught Primrose and Percy how to shoot, he is also first referred to as Ivy's praetoriani.[4]

Despite her mother’s token protestations, one of the Wimbledon Hive, a vampire by the name of Gahiji, had taken Prim and Percy aside at a very young age. They were just old enough to grip a pistol properly when he gave them their first lesson. “The human children of a vampire queen are a great vulnerability to the hive as a whole. I go against my mistress’s wishes in this matter, but as her praetoriani, I must insist you learn to shoot.” ~ Competence, Chapter 7

Quotes Edit

  • "He nodded in the direction of an Egyptian fellow who lurked uncomfortably in a corner. 'Poor Gahiji. Two decades fraternising with the British, and he still can't manage.' Prim tutted at the vampire's evident misery. 'I don't know why Queen Mums sends him. Poor dear-he does so hate society." (Prudence, Chapter One)
