Abdul ben Raschid was a Arabyan Prince and author. [1a]

His full title was Abdul ben Raschid, ben Moussard, ben Osman, the Great Sheikh of Lost Bel Aliad, Son of the Shifting Sands, and Lord of the Maluluk Desert. [1a]

History

For eight years he travelled through the ancient land of Nehekhara, recording all his discoveries and which he would compile as what was called by others, the Book of the Dead. He himself never named his book. [1a][2a]

He would be found dead by his servants before the publication of his book, strangled within a locked room, his body so cold that it burned those who touched it. Although the Caliph of Ka-Sabar gave orders that all copies of the book be burned, he was unsuccessful and in time it would make its way across the Old World. [1a][2a]

Quotes

In that dread desert, beneath the moon's pale gaze, dead men walk. They haunt the shifting dunes of the breathless, windless night, brandishing weapons of bronze in mocking challenge and bitter resentment of the life they no longer possess. And sometimes, in ghastly dry voices, like the rustling of sun-baked reeds, they whisper the one word they remember from life. The name of the one who cursed them them to their existance of more than death but less than life. They whisper the name, Nagash.

~ The Book of the Dead.[1]

Notes

Another version of his death is that Neferata tore him apart in broad daylight in the Street of Booksellers of Copher for refusing to hand over his knowledge around -328 IC. [2a]
