Safi’s childhood best friend and at one time boyfriend. In their teenage years Safi was dumped by her first boyfriend and Rafiki was there to console her. From there bloomed a relationship where they grew very close. However, when Safi was old enough to enlist in the navy she left Rafiki. He hasn’t seen her since then and has lived a fairly normal life since then. Now, because of his good physical condition, he has been drafted. Ironic really, considering he and Safi separated because of the navy.
