Gahiji is a very old vampire. He was a member of the Alexandria Hive of Egypt; upon the death of his queen, Matakara, he transferred to Ivy Tunstell. He moved with her to London, where they established the new Wimbledon Hive. He becomes Ivy's praetoriani. He is an excellent marksman.
In the books Edit
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
- "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)
