An influential prophet who defined King Rakeri's reign more than Rakeri himself.


Born in 3000, he was an ardent follower of the Great King and spent his entire growing up studying his teachings and words. By the time he was 65 he was apparently appalled at the state of his people, especially pertaining to religious matters.

He was a powerful leader, a gifted speaker, and a tremendous motivator. He began on a small scale, but he was well-known by 3077. Then he started denouncing the sects and the public lack of faith in the principles and laws of Yahvo that their culture was founded upon. "There is no longer time for religion as government and power have stolen our love". He often pointed to the government structures such as the Council Chamber that now covered the Tomb of the Great King as a symbol of what they had become..

At first, King Rakeri was infuriated and denounced Tevahr and his teachings, even threatening to have him imprisoned. In 3081 during one of his speeches, Rakeri attended hoping to ridicule it and give the other side to the public. Instead he ended up in a public debate with him. Tevahr handled the debate as best he could, but some of his words were rather harsh and the King had no response to them, ending up bringing ridicule upon himself.

Five days later, Tevahr was invited to the palace and later Rakeri announced that he had chosen Tevahr as his main prophet. Although the advisors of the King were mostly women, no one argued with his choice, and Shama herself was thrilled that Tevahr's wisdom was saught at last.

Probably thanks to Tevahr's influence the public seemed to return again to the beliefs of Ri'neref their culture had been founded. By 3100, the once numerous sects had diminished to 47, with only 10 having more than 500 members. Tevahr was by the side of Rakeri when he announced a grand innovation of the Great Temple.

The people were again unified and much work was done to join the D'ni classes of rich and poor.


Tevahr died in 3218 at the young age of 218. Rakeri was greatly affected and ordered five days of national sadness; most of the D'ni people mourned with the King, despite minor protests from a few of the remaining sects. Rakeri died a year later.[1]

It was thanks o the words and teaching of Tevahr that stayed in the hearts of the people, that they remained united during the repulsive reign of King Tejara, focusing on their personal lives and Yahvo rather than their inadequate leader.

Tevahr had a grandson, Ailem, who wrote "The Lasting Impact".[2]

Years latar Gish, another influential prophet, in turn denounced Tevahr and the teachings of the Great King.[3]
