Raouf is the younger son of Athouman Kaddouri, the head of a wealthy cotton merchant family who live in Alexandria and own plantations in Assiut. He had a spoiled and privileged upbringing before being sent by his father, who shares King Fu’ad’s preference for Europe over Egypt, to be educated at Brasenose College, Oxford. He escaped prejudice and discrimination there – mostly thanks to his family’s wealth and status - and was adopted by a sophisticated set of young bohemians. He spent much of his time as a student playing tennis, rowing, getting drunk, contributing to university magazines and embarking on relationships with other undergraduates. He left with a degree in philosophy, politics and economics to return to Egypt.
It was back in Egypt he faced prejudice for the first time. While regarding himself as culturally English, he found himself excluded from the European communities in Cairo and Alexandria, who regarded any Egyptian as one of the lower classes, Oxford education notwithstanding. As a result he has developed a strong antipathy to the British and sympathy with Egyptian nationalism.
He has acquired his relatively lowly assignment as translator and general assistant to the archaeological dig through a reference from his old college. He believes any artefacts uncovered by it belong to Egypt and should remain there.
He is 24 years old, 5’ 8”, of slight build. He wears mostly Western clothing while ‘working’.
