Quoth the Abgal:

“Of course the Greeks did it right, they had Alexander in their corner. But of course that wouldn’t have meant dick if lil’ Lexie hadn’t of grabbed that pesky Achaemenid Empire in its entirety, which meant Greece would have been dependent on Aristotle, Lexie’s mentor. You understand the paradox?”

Kith Excerpt:

Abgal are arguably the oldest Apkallu (Persian Fae) still manifest in the modern world and are call-backs to Akkadian and Babylonian Empires long past. This all-male Khânevâde (Kith) is a long-learned one, and a kindly remember of the great flood, which they have historical evidence that ties their own histories together. While none of the Abgal was actually present during the deluge (at least not without the remembrance Background), their scholarly traditions and literary pursuits ensure that no piece of the Fertile Crescent’s history is forgotten, no matter how ugly.

The Abgal gather in small rivers and pools throughout the Middle-East, enlightening and teaching. While some scoff at the the thought of water in the deserts, the Abgal only laugh and seek to enlighten the nay-sayer with knowledge. Dubai, the U.A.E. Abu-Dhabi, there are still bright shining jewel-ports in the Persian crown. Water is as available and ubiquitous now as it was when they taught the Macedonians (those upstart Greeks) how to build aqueducts.

In the modern world of men, the Abgal host seminars in 5-star hotels and still serve as guides, priests, and lore keepers. They are familiar with thousands of years of law, history, and art, and will gladly share that knowledge (usually around the pool) with seminars, power-points, and allocutions. With lecture-subjects ranging from self-help to mechanical engineering, the Abgals live to share. This travel also allows this Khânevâde to seek out knowledge of the other realms of the Dreaming. The Abgal are a curious and gregarious troupe, who seek answers of what the was, is, and might become become. Many have knowledge of when the First-Born left this realm millennium ago. They are curious as to these “Sidhe” that have returned.
