Akari (first name not recorded) is the first mate aboard a large, civilian hauler vessel called Pride of Jeddis.
Mister Akari was aboard the Pride of Jeddis when the ship, along with other civilian vessels, was requested by the Imperial Navy to recover any survivors of the disastrous destruction of Fort Kosling (→LOTD).
When the lifeboat carrying Occre Brant and Peras Tirrano was brought aboard the ship, Akari was one of the crew members who inducted the occupants. He asked them to follow him to the Jeddis' mess, where he promised food was waiting (→LOTD).
Peras Tirrano went to speak with Akari, and found him to be a short but incredibly wiry man, with a full, black beard which was "almost obsessively neat in contrast with his dangerously unkempt hair" (→LOTD).
