Khayman was generally gentle, optimistic, and friendly, inviting mortals to his rooms and entertaining them with poetry, music and conversation, although he sometimes appears somewhat lonely or even shy. Although powerful, he disliked wanton brutality. He lives by various guises in many different places, and when he stops having fun or feels lonely, he returns to Maharet who awaits with open, forgiving arms.


He was tall and strong as a mortal, with very tan skin, dark eyes, and black hair. He retains most of these traits with the exception of his skin lightening in pigment as most ancients do.

Khayman was an Egyptian who was the chief steward in the palace of King Enkil and Queen Akasha of Kemet (now Egypt) circa 4000 BCE. He was tall and strong as a mortal, with very tan skin, dark eyes, and black hair. As head steward to the King and Queen, Khayman was forced to rape the twin witches Maharet and Mekare after the witches incurred Akasha’s wrath. Gentle and kind by nature, Khayman was horrified to do so, but was unable to refuse the Queen’s command, lest it meant the death of the twins and himself. From his rape he unintentionally fathered a child with Maharet, named Miriam, who began the bloodline of Maharet’s “Great Family” that would later spread to every nation on Earth.  Maharet was able to forgive him for his crimes against her and her sister as they gave birth to baby Miriam who grew up in their care.  Mekare however, never has forgiven him and refuses to accept her sister’s relationship with him. Khayman is constantly shamed by her, and he takes it as his purgatory for his misdeeds.

Akasha and Enkil made Khayman bring Maharet and Mekare back into Egypt to find out how their insatiable bloodlust can be mitigated. Maharet replies that the evil spirit Amel now inhabiting the Queen is too large to be contained in her singular body. Only when more vampires are made will the spirit will be diluted and the bloodlust will become tolerable.  Akasha betrays Khayman’s loyalty by forcibly turning him into a vampire against his will, to verify the witches’ claims. Angry at what he has become, Khayman secretly makes the twin witches into vampires in hope that one day they will rise against Akasha and defeat her.

Khayman afterwards makes other vampires to fight against Akasha and Enkil, which creates what is known as “The First Brood”, all whom are part of House Kemet. His treason results in a great increase of the vampire population, creating the vampire army to fight in the vampire wars that he dreamed of.  However,  due to his soft gentle nature he is unable to retain the loyalty of those he created, thus they eventually leave creating more and more of the vampire race.
