Background

Yusuf el-Aswan was a thug. He knew it and his buddies knew it. Yusuf regularly disappointed his parents by mugging hopeful contenders to the Desert Wars and being an all-around disrepute. One cold night, he and his gang of hoodlums were stumbling around the desert when they sighted an old excavation site. Curious and eager for a place to sit, the group made their intoxicated way towards the camp.

Before they could enter, several tall, deathly pale figures leapt out of crevices and holes and began assaulting the band of thugs. Yusuf attempted to defend his allies, firing his rifle wildly, accidentally shooting one of his friends by mistake. This overwhelmed Yusuf with panic and grief and he fled into the excavation site and hid. After several hours, one of the pale men found him, and threw him to the ground. Yusuf heard a low growl from behind him and struggled to turn around. Suddenly the room filled with burning Hieroglyphs, teeth, claws and sunlight, vaporizing Yusuf's assailant.

But he saw none of this, as he was having a vision. In this hallucination, he was transported back to the outside of the site, but it was day and instead of being a ruin, the area was filled with magnificent stone buildings, and bustling crowds. Yusuf felt a pressure on his shoulder, looking down he saw a creature he had only heard of in legends: a serpopard. The catlike creature twisted its long neck to look him squarely in the eye. Suddenly, Yusuf was filled with a sense of profound purpose and determination. Then he woke up, a man reborn with a new name: Bedjoheb-Aten, meaning He who calls The Sun.

Narrative Significant Qualities

Positive

Aten's Blessing (Mentor Spirit:Wolf (Serpopard), Dedicated Spellslinger, Mentor's Mask): Bedjoheb seeks to please Aten and carry out his will. Aten is pleased.

Blood Boil (Witness my Hate): On his first large-scale battle with Infected, Bedhead found himself unable to meaningfully harm his sworn enemies. Vowing never to return to the scared boy he had once been, Bedjoheb began channeling his own life force to exterminate his hated foes.

Negative

Brutal Simplicity (Prejudiced: Infected): Bedjoheb hates Infected with a single-mindedness that has a tendency to push away those close to him. Fortunately or not, Bedhead cares little about that.

Aswanid clan curse ('Ware intolerance, Reduced Sense (Smell)): Ever since the Middle ages, the Aswanid clan has resided in their namesake region. Unfortunately, not many leave. This has genetic consequences
