Narjiss is a hotel desk clerk in Tozeur, Tunisia. As Ben journeyed into Tunisia after subduing the two Bedouins, he asked Narjiss for a room at the hotel, telling her he was "preferred guest" Dean Moriarty. Narjiss, upon seeing the name in the register, looked uneasy or possibly scared. However, she still gave Ben the key to the room. She then verified the date as October 24, 2005, confused as to why Ben did not know the year. ("The Shape of Things to Come")
