Karima is the aunt of Salah and infected with Red Death. She has no faith in alchemy, trusting only doctors despite none bringing her relief from her ailments.
The player must pretend to be a doctor sent by Salah with a cure for Red Death. Karima not fully believing the player to be a doctor sends them to retrieve a recipe for a cure from her basement that was given to her by a monk. It turns out the recipe is nothing more than a shopping list, Karima likely having thrown out the recipe by mistake.
She then decides to try the cure the player brought and claims to feel great afterwards. Salah reveals the cure was actually poison. Karima’s basement is literally filled floor to ceiling with medicine bottles which Salah claims he has occasionally stolen for a little extra cash.
