Tancrede de Nerac, a former Knight of the Templars has become a lawless desert pirate and has taken the name As-Sayf derived from the sword he carries -the Arabian scimitar. After years of being a mercenary, he becomes disillusioned. He heard of a prophet, Simon de Lancrois who is supposed to have collected a following of people of different races and religions to build an ideal city away from the world.
