Chin Akima was the owner of a menagerie (TFoH, Ch. 36).
He set up his show in Samara three days before Valan Luca and attracted his audience with a man who juggled swords and axes, and nine acrobats (TFoH, Ch. 36).
He and half his performers were beheaded during the fighting between the Dragonsworn and the Whitecloaks because Akima was too slow in breaking camp (TFoH, Ch. 47).
