Midnight at the Oasis
A petty and jealous sorceror-king, Tectuktitlay is the ruler of Draj. Calling himself the Father of Life, Tectuktitlay claims to be the child of the two moons, given to Athas by divine providence and so powerful that he can raise bountiful harvests with a mere wave of his hand. Tectuktitlay insists on being worshipped as a god, and his visage adorns walls, statues, banners, and sides of buildings. Still, “being worshipped” typically amounts to blood sacrifice, and he slaughters many slaves in pursuit of further power.
