The khat was a head cloth worn by the nobility of Ancient Egypt. Simpler than the nemes head-dress, it did not have pleats or stripes, and hung down open in the back rather than being tied together.

Usage examples of "khat".

She glanced around, at Paitor and the captain, at Dyk and Khat and Mel.

He blinked, and sent a short glance straight to Khat, who caught it, read it, and stepped forward, smooth and soft-footed.

Point won, Khat turned back to the bartender, raised her eyes briefly and expressively at the ceiling, and smiled.

Seeli snapping was Seeli upset, so Khat made allowance and answered civil.

Seeli said, and Khat heard a solid, welcome thump on the table before her.

Seeli only nodded and pointed at the empty chair between Mel and Paitor, which seat Khat took with a fair amount of trepidation.

It was a small group at the main lock: Khat, Iza, and Uncle Paitor to witness his farewell.

No problem for the applicant on that approach, Khat thought, walking down the dusty, noisy main street.
