Black Company Wiki

The veyedeen dervishes are members of a splinter sect of the Vehdna religion in the southern continent. They are anti-materialistic, and devote themselves to acts of charity and selflessness. Most notably, they wear woolen robes despite the climate they lived in as a reminder of the brutal afterlife they escape from by practicing their beliefs.

In Water Sleeps, the Black Company had been reduced to an underground urban network within Taglios. Goblin was ordered by Sleepy to wear the robes of a dervish around the city, in order to hide his distinctive white skin and identity. He used this disguise to sneak past a blockade set up by the Greys (Soulcatcher's police force) around the "Thieves Garden" Chor Bagan.
