The Book of Ages

Desert Scarabs

Desert Scarabs

A group of thieves populating Sakhmet, the Desert Scarabs are a constant problem for the royal guards, always stealing away food and treasures from the city folk. They can easily be identified by the scarab tattoo imprinted on their arms. They stole King Hagan's Pocket Chess while he was staying in the Sakhmet palace, by bribing the guards to gain access. The Pocket Chess was later recovered, and at least some of the Scarabs arrested.
