- "Change comes like the sunrise. Slow to begin, but in time, all is illuminated."
During the reign of Sun-King Jiran, Namman's brother was a Sun-Priest. He fervently urged Namman away from the priesthood; however this did not deter Namman, even after his brother was killed for speaking out against the sacrifices of the Red Raids.
Namman joined the priesthood, finding consolation for his brother's death by adorning his robes.
Namman is, by all indications, the most progressive Sun-Priest in the temple: he acknowledges the faults with Carja tradition, opposes the gender restriction of the priesthood, and supports reconciliation with other tribes. While a firm believer in his own faith, Namman believes that the Sun's light is meant for all people, and that the beliefs of all tribes can co-exist in harmony.
Aloy meets Namman at the Sun-Ring in Meridian. He is hosting two pilgrims, Rea and Kimik, who have traveled to the Sundom to pay their respects to tribe members killed during the Mad King's reign. He requests Aloy's assistance in clearing various obstacles from the mourners' paths, as well as helping a third pilgrim, Brageld, deal with a stubborn Sun-Priest at the Shrine of Kings. Namman is found again in the Temple of the Sun, having been invited back by the other priests.
- Namman is a potential ally. If Honor the Fallen is completed before Aloy rests in The Looming Shadow, he can be found praying near the Spire.
- When starting the quest Honor The Fallen, Namman mentions his Sun-robes were originally dyed red with cinnabar. Cinnabar contains mercury, which is highly toxic and causes psychotic reactions, and could be what caused Sun-King Jiran to go mad.
