History: born in AC800 in one of the Alasiyan tribes of the desert, during the Thyatian and Alphatian occupation of IX century Suleiman al-Kalim spent his youth trying to reconcile the way of the desert warrior with the old teachings of the dervishes who brought him up. In his adulthood he became a wise warrior-priest, and later was hailed as the leader of Alasiyan insurrection against the foreign conquerors. Using bright guerrilla tactics and his innate leadership skills, al-Kalim was able to unite the tribes one after the other, and with their help, he started a liberation war against the Alphatians and the Thyatians that lasted for more than a decade. In the end, the Alasiyans were able to throw the invaders out of their borders and established the United Emirates of Ylaruam in 831 AC, a confederate nation where all the tribal chiefs are led by a Sultan, a position held by al-Kalim. In 835 AC al-Kalim began a religious pilgrimage with his faithful companion Farid that took him outside Ylaruam and up to the underwater mountain where he met the Old Man of the Sea, who became his patron and sponsor on the path of the Dynast. When he came back to Ylaruam, al-Kalim started preaching to his followers the teachings of a new faith, the Eternal Truth, which Farid collected in the holy book named Nahmeh, a collection of wise parables and just laws. The Eternal Truth was based on two main pillars: the Dream of Justice and Honour to unify the tribes and make them stronger in order to withstand the eventual disappearance of al-Kalim, and the Dream of the Desert Garden, the project to make the desert a more fertile land that could rely upon itself and diminish the foreigners’ influence in Ylaruam. al-Kalim retired from public life in AC 860, and later made up false news about his death to proceed on the path of the Dynast. He finally reached immortality in AC 1001, after securing his dynasty on the throne of Ylaruam.

Personality: al-Kalim is at the same time a merciless warrior and a merciful sage, a possessed dreamer and a realistic scholar. He is tolerant towards diversity and foreign customs, but he can prove stiff and unforgiven when it comes to the safety of his protégés and followers and when his teachings are scorned. His followers act much the same, with the zealots reaching peaks of blind intolerance. He preaches unity among his faithfuls, the sanctity of life and the protection of nature (in particular of water as source of life), all teachings that come from an existence led in places where death and drought are hated life companions. For this reason all Alasiyans follow the Eternal Truth. al-Kalim is a loyal ally of Protius who sponsored his ascension, and he feels in debt towards the Old Man of the Sea, since he has not yet kept his promise to make the Alasiyan Desert a lush garden in his honour. He is in perpetual conflict with Zugzul and Ranivorus, which brought and still bring chaos and destruction among the Ylari with their machinations and the use of their followers (Magians and Gnolls).
