Shahrzad

Shahrzad is the only child of Jamshid. She lost her mother at a young age and has been a dutiful daughter and selfless servant to the people of Jamkard. She has inherited part of Jamshid’s “glory” as her heart is pure and full of light which, is reflected in the beautiful music she plays on the dutar (lute). The magical sounds from her dutar brings peace to the palace and stokes the light of the golden era of Jamshid. Her presence in the palace is a sign of the perseverance of Iran and the people of Jamkard against Zahak. She doesn’t return Zahak’s feelings, as her heart is already full of love for her people and country. She narrates our story as she has been the constant witness to history in the palace.
