Babak “The Boss”
Babak was born in the squalid slums of the city of Jerit in the deep south of the Empire of Jagrad in the year 162. In Jerit Babak was just a simple thief and crook, and he spent most of his days on the dirty streets of Jerit. Because of his menace looks he was soon hired by one of the goblin mine owners of Bunan named Regkusâ to protect his massamite mine from lurking eyes of outsiders. Not only did Babak prove to be perfectly suited for the role, he was also so decisive that he soon became the leader of the mine’s overseers. Babak did not shy away from using force to get rid of the prying eyes of uninvited guests.
But Babak’s ruthlessness would eventually play tricks on him. The satraps in Jerit heard of the atrocities in the mines of Bunan, so an emissary was sent to the mines north of the city. The biggest problem for the leaders of the city, incidentally, was not even the cruel punishments – they did that themselves too to their workers – but that these were carried out in the name of the goblin Regkusâ. Of course, the satraps knew they couldn’t deal with Regkusâ themselves, but they had heard about the cruel Babak.
A nephew of the satrap of Jerit was sent to the mine to demand a mandatory viewing of the mine, which he hoped would lure Babak out. Babak, being Babak, decided to not accept this demand because he thought that the boy was a silly swindler so he would teach the vain boy a lesson. Babak pushed the boy so hard of a cliff that he fell and broke his neck, resulting in the satraps nephew death. Babak just didn’t know that he had killed the son of one of the most powerful men in all off Jerit. Even his goblin boss couldn’t protect him anymore and Babak was forced to flee headlong. Babak decided to flee to the north at the direction of one of his helpers – Shinar “The Follower” – and finally he would settle in the City of Jagrad.
Babak was murdered in the aftermath of the assault on Munra Street by Ring “The Thief” and Mehrana “The Silent” in the year 212. After his murder his organization quickly dissolved and many of his former henchmen joined the Night’s Cult. The Deeps, the poor district of Jagrad, was now under strict control of Selene “The Night’s Mistress” and other Children of the Moon.
