Genie Wars part I: The Legacy of Fire
enemy - The Sand Sage
The mild mannered Sand Sage is exiled from polite society in Sothis for his role in the Exemplar Khymrasa’s treasonous activities at the Pact Pyramid.
This Osirian Keleshite is known only as the Sand Sage. In his teens, his life transformed irrevocably while visiting an obscure antiquities shop in the heart of Sothis, where he discovered a small intricate statuette of a blue dragon. Inside the statuette, within the dragon’s maw, was a tiny clock counting down from what was once an exhilaratingly huge number. His discovery triggered a lifelong study of his country’s history and the god-like pharaohs that once ruled in the age in which the clock first began counting down. Since then he has encountered three other countdown devices, each timed exactly to match his. Over a lifetime, he has only found minor clues as to what the countdown corresponds to. He knows that it relates to the planet Aucturn, but little more. He now fears the countdown’s conclusion will have staggering repercussions for Golarion, but does not know what to prepare for.
One of Osirion’s foremost Osiriontologists, he was contacted by Khymrasa several years ago and placed on a lucrative retainer to answer questions in her hunt for the Pact Stone. Unbeknownst to Khymrasa, the Sand Sage has been carefully sculpting his answers about the Four Pharaohs to encourage the Exemplar to fund searches for additional countdown devices. Her discovery of Ahn’Selota has convinced the Sand Sage that the search for the Pact Stone may somehow be connected to his own interests, increasing his support for her.
The Sand Sage wears pure white robes and a jewel- encrusted yellow turban. His black beard is carefully trimmed and compliments his fastidious appearance. He is never without the benefit of an active prying eyes spell.
