Umm al-Mawt

Shagaret al-Durr, previously known as Shajar al-Durr, is known among mortals as the first and only sultana of Cairo.


Originally, she was a Turkish slave girl that the previous sultan, bought for his wife. After the sultan had died, she hid the fact from the public in order to prevent the mamelukes from a coup d'état, as the only heir to the throne was in the crusades, and installed her as the sultan in his absence.

After revolts within the population, she was forced to take a husband, who installed the first mameluke state within Egypt. Her gambit failed and, after the mysterious death of her husband, she was horribly beaten up by the retinues of a rival and tossed down into the moat, but she was saved by the Nosferatu Umm al-Mawt who inhabited the moat of the castle. He soon left her on her own devices.

After Shagaret returned into public, she mounted a campaign against the treatment of non-muslim Nosferatu within Cairo and built a haven for all who wanted to hide from the Hajj and the mameluke prince that controls the city. The movement called themselves the Alnilam and , in a slow scale, they are getting strong enough to oppose the merciless rule of the Hajj. Some even suspect her as the secret leader of a Gehenna cult.
