As the son of a councilor, Imenand never wanted for much. His family was highly respected, and he lived a fairly privileged life with his mother and two elder sisters. As a child he rarely spoke, even when directly addressed. This led many, including his father to assume he was feeble minded. Never seeing the point of correcting them, Imenand let them believe it. Despite this his father attempted to teach him (at his mother's insistence) , not certain any of his lessons were even sinking in. He might never make it as a councilor, but his father supposed he might make a good scribe one day if nothing else. But Imenand was learning, and he was listening, often privy conversations others would not have had in front of him should they know just how clever he actually was.
As he grew up, Imenand's personality became more and more severe. He was not particularly pleasant the other children, and had often heretical questions about the Djed's place in the world. He was bored with the simple world around him and desperately wanted something more thrilling. He would read about the great wars his ancestors fought, and wished he could have been there in those ancient and glorious times.
The only time he was ever actually kind to the other children was when he wanted something, and since they assumed he was just the simple minded son of a councilor they would often let Imenand have his way. If they needed more convincing, Imenand was not above manipulation. Or, if he was just bored he may steal something from one family and leave it in the tent of another, just to see the chaos that would follow.
When he left for his rite of passage, many people did not think he would return. Imenand had never shown much aptitude for anything, so little was expected when he went in. Left with only a small amount of water and food, Imenand waited for the vision to come to him. For a long time nothing seemed to happen, and as hunger and thirst over took him he was certain he wouldn't receive any type of spiritual vision. He could not have been less prepared for what would come, and change his life entirely.
He saw Egypt as it had been, the Egypt he longed to be a part of thousands of years ago. He lived an entire lifetime through that vision, and walked through the ancient temples as a priest of the god Set. In it, he saw the faces of pharaohs and queens, which he would later recognize in his current life as their reincarnated spirits. When Imenand awoke he knew his life's purpose, and why he had always felt like such an outsider among his people. He was destined to bring about a great age of chaos and rebellion, an age where his god would be worshiped once again...and he could not do that as the slow witted son. He would have to change how the world saw him to accomplish these goals.
When he was brought home, he did not tell the elders of his past life. It was a secret, with information he would keep to himself until the proper moment. Instead he told them he has seen Egypt rebuilt, that he had seen the Djed rise from their place among the desert to reclaim all they had lost in the years since the last pharaoh's fall. It was decided then, that Imenand should continue to study under his father to become a councilor.
The change in Imenand was obvious, and his father noticed it almost immediately. Rather than being embarrassed by his son's silence or off putting attitude, he could be proud of Imenand's fierce determination and unshakable spirit. In just a few short years he had gone from quiet child to perhaps one of the most influential minds among his tribe. He studies languages, and even other religions, keen to know as much as he possibly could. Information was power, and he intended to absorb as much of it as he could. In this time he found ways to gain the favors of other councilors, by doing them favors or gaining them those hard to find items they may have desired. His family could not have been more proud of him, or indeed more in the way of his success.
At the age of 21, Imenand decided he no longer wished to simply train to be one of the great councilors, he wished to be one. He recognized the face of Sutekh as the pharaoh Seti, and took this as a sign that soon his god would require his services. He couldn't do that until he was on the council, so he poisoned his father's drink. It was just enough to make him ill, so that Imenand would take temporary ownership of his position on the council. Of course, the healer's were able to see that he had been poisoned, so to cover his tracks he poisoned the rest of his tribe's water supply, and found a way to blame it on their enemies, the Medjai. Many got ill, and a few even died, but any that might suspect Imenand would die. Among the dead were his sisters and father, but Imenand didn't seem to mind. he got what he wanted, and became part of the council.
Now, he bides his time, whispering things into the ears of the other councilors, waiting for his moment to bring about chaos and fire in the name of Set.
