Khatef-Zelh is a young girl encountered by S. in the city at war.
Khatef-Zelh first seen helping to move important pieces of art into a bunker owned by the resistance when S. arrives. After S. spots a painting of a young Sola, he asks Khatef-Zelh who she is. Khatef-Zelh explains that the painting is of a woman named Samar, who is sometimes said to have been the lover of a sailor named Arquimedes de Sobreiro.
After S. is able to escape the city in order to get back to the Mysterious Ship, he sees that the city is leveled by some sort of fiery bomb. He is unsure as to whether or not the resistance's bunker would be able to resist the blast, leaving her fate in doubt.
