Khopeshman of Sothis
Leader of the Risen Guard
The Khopeshman of Sothis is the name and title of the leader of both the city watch of Osirion’s capital, Sothis, as well as the Risen Guard, an elite unit tasked with protecting the royal family. Insiders refer to him as the First Captain of the Forthbringer. The Khopeshman of Sothis has died three times defending the pharaoh from assassination.
In addition to being a combatant, the Khopeshman of Sothis is also known for his skills as an administrator and for his political acumen, with knowledge of not just Osirion, but of its neighbors as well.
It is common for members of the Risen Guard to forsake their names after being revived and inducted into the Risen Guard. It is speculated that this is why the Khopeshman of Sothis does not otherwise bear a more personal name. There is a great deal of speculation as to just whom the Khopeshman was in his former life, before he became Sothis’ most important guardsman.
