The Dey of Bizercca

The Barbary Coast harbours all manner of pirate lords and scheming potentates, but among the most notorious of the commanders of raider fleets must stand Emir Driss Khal-al-Waw Dey, pretender to the fallen caliphate of Scandalusia and terror of the Sicilies, Sardinea, Corseta and the other isles of the western Mediterranean. From his impregnable home port of Bizercca, his corsairs sail throughout the Mediterranean and past the Straits of Gibraltar into the north Atlantic beyond.

Playing Gallia, Hispania, Britannia and the Sublime Porte itself against each other for his own ends, the Dey plots tirelessly to thwart the pretensions of his Barbary and Corsetan rivals, regain the lost throne of his family in Iberia and even, in his private moments in his seraglio, dreams of restoring the western Caliphate to the promise of its mediaeval glories.

The Emir Tubeir of the Haddabeira tribe welcomes the Dey to the wonderful world of Imagi-Urope.
