Background

Murabids are the desert peoples, the men of the dunes. They serve in the Haqqislamite army as forward scouts. Their members are Badawis from the Taba region, nomads of the sands that maintain the Berber culture.

They can be distinguished by their thin frames and dune gear: things like water recyclers, bandoliers and flexible boots. Tuaregs feel at home in the desert, and appreciate that it is a clean, pure, and dangerous place; an unforgiving place. It is their philosophy that, to survive the desert, you must become part of it, not its enemy. There is a measure of stoicism in them, and it makes their will unbreakable. You will never see them cower when the situation becomes catastrophic; on the contrary, terrible prospects only make them buckle down to see the operation through. But their principal quality is their talent for stealth. When the Tuaregs move across the sands they are completely silent, their outlines blurred by the billowing of clothes in shadow, like ghostly shrouds that dissolve into the landscape.

Tuaregs are trained at stealth like no other.

Real Tuaregs are an ethnic group that live in the Sahara Desert. They speak the Tuareg language, and were traditionally called the "blue people" due to the indigo dye they used in their clothes; said dye also stained their skin. They are a nomadic people who prctice Islam, and are descended from indigenous Berber communities in Northen Africa. Their ancestry is mixed, but their heritage is deeply tied with Northern Africa and the great deserts that cover it. Tuaregs are based around clan membership, and different clans have different hierarchies and cultural traditions. They breed cattle and camels in the south, but ongoing climate threats and serious droughts eroded their traditional way of life. Tuaregs have their own unique script, which is used to write Berber languages. This is an ancient script, older than the Arabs or the Romans and maybe older than the ancient Phoenicians and Carthage.
