Amazigh are a nomadic desert tribe known as fierce warriors. They speak Punic. Astegal uses the Amazigh as bodyguards for himself and Sidonie. Imriel, as Leander Maignard, while in Carthage buys and frees an Amazigh slave named Ghanim who was betrayed into slavery by his brother.

The Amazigh body guards wear blue clothing with burnooses that hide everything but their eyes.

Imriel dresses as an Amazigh in clothing procured by Ghanim and thus disguised smuggles Sidonie, while unconscious and wrapped in a carpet, out of Carthage.
