My name is Daud ibn Tabir and I am the son of a tribal chief. We make our permanent home near Touggart, but most of the year follow the winds of the Sahara. I love my land and people, usually having little to say to the ajnabiyy—the foreigners—who have come to claim this place as their territory. We have lived here for a thousand years and will for another millennia when their capitals are dust.
I am tall for my people, dark with black eyes and hair. I tend to wear my hair long, but if I have to leave our lands, I tend to cut it short and dress like the “natives” I have a sister, Noor, we looks similar to me. As I am unmarried, she takes care of my household—until recently.
Our territory is a difficult, beautiful land of rugged, arid mountains and canyons, oases hidden within the folds of the land. Open sand dunes can be found to the south beginning with the Grand Erg. More temperate climate can be found along north coast where cork oak trees and oleander shrubs grow in woodlands between grassland and agricultural areas. Here small farms provide dates, grain, fowl, livestock, citrus, nuts, citrus, and other food items.
My sister Noor takes care of my household as neither one of us is married.
