Hanif Escapees

Hanif Escapees

The Hanif was a human tribe, seed of the Empire known as Yodotai. They returned to their homeland in the Burning Sands to became free of the Yodotai yoke.

Day of Wrath Edit

These people lived before the Day of Wrath in the place which would be known as the Burning Sands. After Shilah, the Sun, enacted her anger, and the lush place became a desert, the people began to travel, seeking farmable lands. They arrived to a place where they would be known as the Hanif. [1]

Meeting of the ancestors Edit

The Hanif lived in small towns, and they had confidence one to each other to survive, they were called the Hanif. In these days they did not know anything about Gods. [2]

Dawn of the Yodotai Edit

In the year 45 a light appeared in a hill in the middle of the Hanif lands. A wise elder approached who seemed to be a spirit resembling a great warrior. He was Conquest, spirit of one of the dead sons of Caelus, the Sky, and Gaia, the Earth. They talked three days and nights, and when they finished the elder told his people about how the the children of the Gods had been thrown from the heavens. The arrival of Conquest, Deity of War, was the beginning of the expansionistic Yodotai Empire, which would be the heralds of the Gods and had the divine duty as conquerors of the whole continent. The elder died after he ended his tale. His son, Octavius, stepped forth and claimed the leadership of the Yodotai. Those who did not accepted him left these lands, and they remained to be known as the Hanif. [3]

The Hanif knew the Yodotai were entirely unreasonable, and that was why they had left the nascent Yodotai Empire centuries ago, retruning to the place known as the Burning Sands. [4]

Sheel Edit

An offspring of the Hanif became the Sheel Kingdom. The Hanif resumed their path toward the east, and hundred kilometers afar they could reach Medinaat al-Salaam. [5]

Shinsei Edit

The trek into the desert took its toll, and the appearation of a small prophet, Mekhem, saved them to die in the sands. [6] The little prophet guided them back to their homelands. When they returned another empire, the Senpet, attacked to enslave them. The nation broke in fourteen tribes, and the eleventh went with Mekhem. [1]

12th century Edit

The Hanif slaves claimed that the spirit of the Little Prophet had appeared between them, but the newcomer slaves, the Scorpion, called him with another name, [6] Shinsei.

Soraph, the Hanif Idol Edit

Soraph became an idol for his attitude against their Lords, [7] and in 1132 he eventually managed to escape, [8] contacted the Yodotai Warlord Aurelian, [9] who quickly swore to change their fate. [10]

Escapees Edit

The prophet Duqaq snuck into the mines of the Senpet and inspired the Hanif and the Scorpion to throw off their chains and turn on their captors. With his leadership they had managed to distract the Senpet until the Yodotai arrived to liberate the slaves. [4] The Scorpion fell in with the fleeing Hanif, and while the Senpet hunted the others, they vanished out into the sands. [11]

Moto Gaheris Edit

The enslaved Hanif tried to elude the pursuing Senpet, but it appeared that they would nearly all be recaptured this night. Then, without warning, the Moto Clan Champion, Moto Gaheris, arose from the Burning Sands and aided them to be free. [12]

Erba'a Alliance Edit

They joined the Erba'a Alliance and fought in the Shattering of the Jewel, [4] manning the catapults alongside the Moto and commanded by the Yodotai. The volleys broke the city walls. [13] During the Awakening the Alliance was defeated by the Senpet when a lightning decimated their ranks. [14]

Their cousins, the Yodotai, began the Yodotai Invasion of Senpet lands as punishment for the Hanif slavery. When they got victory in 1160 the Hanif in these lands were again free men. [15] They could began to seek their lost tribe, the Eleventh. [1]
