Sumaran, son of Jirel, was a fisherman on the southern shore of Assail, known as the Dead Coast.

In AssailEdit

Fishing far up the coast from his village, Sumaran often spotted the frightening woman his people called the Ghost Woman walking the shore. When an accident forced his outrigger onto the rocks and cast him into the sea, the Ghost Woman tended him while he recovered. As soon as he was able, the terrorized Sumaran fled home on foot.[1]


In some copies of Assail, Sumaran's name is spelled "Sumaran" in some paragraphs and "Suraman" in others.
