Soraph was a member of the Hanif tribe, cousins of the Yodotai.

Family Edit

Soraph had a brother, Balak. [1]

Hanif Idol Edit

When his people reached the Burning Sands the Senpet enslaved and sent them to forced works in their mines. Soraph became an idol of his captived brethren. [2] His deeds would be recorded in the Tale of Soraph the Free Man. [3]

Escapee Edit

Soraph managed to escape, turning and piercing on his Lord. [4] The breakout had been planned by the Senpet, who expected his legend would fade after he escaped, but it seemed his influence only grew thereafter. [5]

Yodotai Edit

Soraph meets the Yodotai

While wandering in the desert some warriors chased him, until he felt to earth, exhausted, waiting a killing blow from his prosecutors. But one of the warriors stopped her companion's strike. [6] Katarine the Sheel had recognized the scarred man features as one of her breed. Hanif, Sheel, and Yodotai, all were the same people centuries ago. Soraph told the Yodotai Warlord Aurelian that the Senpet had more of the Hanif enslaved. [3] The Yodotai leader enraged and swore his Empire would conquest those who had dared to beat his brethren. [7] It would lead in the formation of the Erba'a Alliance, the ensuing Shattering of the Jewel, and decades later the Yodotai Invasion of Senpet lands which would destroy the Senpet Empire. [8]
