The Talabi were a nomadic tribe of traders and raiders living in the sands of Deshret. Known as a very devout and traditionalist tribe, they worshipped a moon god named Ta'lab, still popular in Axa. In a surprise raid one night, the Talabi were utterly destroyed by a rival tribe for a small perceived slight. The only surviving members of the Talabi are Hanan al-Saffah and Isra - a brother and sister who avenged their family by systematically killing the entire tribe that destroyed them. They did such a thorough job that the name of that rival tribe is now all but forgotten, and no one who remembers it would dare to speak it again.
