Tuthmes, Noble of Kush

Tuthmes is a rebellious nobleman of royal blood. Tuthmes is a tall, slender and dusky Chaga with the straight features of his caste.

He excels in making a creative idea serve a practical purpose; he likes to achieve victory with flair. He uses direct methods to achieve goals but is seen as assertive, not aggressive, despite his competitive attitude. He is more apt to persuade someone than command someone, speaking from a detailed plan of action geared to ensure a succession of results - all of which are aimed at a final goal.

Tuthmes is a good critical thinker and is verbal in his criticisms. He can be a little too ingenious at times, and abuses his authority. He judges others based on their ability to initiate actions and perform tasks to his standards.

Tuthmes has a servant (cohort) named Shubba (Male Gallah Commoner 5). Currently he is plotting to overthrow the king and his sister and rule Kush with the consent of the Gallah. He has acquired the services of Muru, a Kordafan adventurer with a monster at his beck and call, and intends to use the monster to slay political enemies of the king and his sister - and then blame them for the assassinations! Thus, he intends to rally the support of Ageera and the Gallahs.
