Namari is an official who first appeared when Yoh's friends attempted to stop Hao's followers from killing Lady Sati. He apparently had some sort of discontent or rivalry with Ryu, though also seemed to respect him. He was an open supporter of Hao, intimidating some of the remaining contestants in the tournament. Namari's spirit was a cobra named Red Rope with his medium (probably) having been snake skin. On their journey to get to the Star Sanctuary, Ryu fought with him first one-on-one in his area: the desert. After killing Ryu, he was in turn killed by Ren with the help of Horo Horo. Before he died he smiled, knowing he'd won by having his boastful opponents use a part of their furyoku to defeat him. This caused Ren to respect him afterwards. He was responsible for all Gandhara shaman. His oversoul looks like the cobra's head has attached itself onto his hand while the rest of the body with its tail passes over his shoulder. With the cobra's head in the lead it allows Namari to move with great speed. He attacks with the cobra's fangs which have poison that can instantly kill an opponent, and the tail can also be used to strike at them. Red rope also has a defensive "Boa form" that wraps around Namari to soften the blows of his opponent.
