Balphos Cinderscar: a general of the Sun during the First War, responsible for nearly getting Imn killed. Responsible for the first aggression over the Slaggen Fields – an area now known as the Sahara Desert – Balphos’ desire to own the Nile as one of the last clean sources of water led to an enormous conflict with the People of the Dream.

It was during this time that Imn broke away from the People of the Sun, becoming a deserter, determined to find his way to Az’Kabek.
