Introduction

Mohammad discovered the SCA in 1992 at his first event: Pennsic War. He enjoyed the SCA doing the party all day and all night for 6 years before he started fighting. Then he took the red belt from Sir Andreas Hak and became a knight 4 years after. Right next to his elevation, Mohammad founded his Household Al-Karakal. After 30 years in the SCA, Mohammad decided to enter the Crown Tournament and became Prince of Tir Mara and heir of the East Kingdom.

Persona

Mohammad is a Mamluk persona, who lives as a nomad with his group in the deserts between Turkey and Syria.

Born in 1273 in Inverness Scotland, under the name of Morgan MacGowan, from a Highlander mom (Argyle MacGowan) and a French merchant (Jonas de Soulac), he lived his early youth as a farmer with his 2 brothers. His mother, a soldier, was never at home and died when Mohammad was 5 years old. After this tragedy, his father, who wasn’t able to take care of his sons, placed them under the guardianship of a friend in Constantinople, to educate them. Morgan, renamed Mohammad Al Abderrafi, studied philosophy and mathematics for 3 years before they were attacked by a Mamluk tribe. One of his brothers died, the other one escaped and disappeared, and Mohammad was captured. Immediately, Mohammad was tested by the mamluks to see if he could be one of them and survived. He became a Mamluk slave at the age of 8 and entered the Furûsiyya (the western chivalry), where he found the asabiyya (“esprit de corps”) among his new family.
