Of humble origins, Master Sage is a descendant of the Dogon people known their complex cosmogony and discovery of Sirius B, the white dwarf companion star of Sirius A which is invisible to the naked eye. The Dogon returned to the Nile Valley (Meroe) after migrating from the central plateau of ancient Mali.
Rekhmira (Master Sage) entered the ‘House of Life’ scribal schools where he quickly distinguished himself rising through the Napatan civil service to the rank of Prime Minister, Chief Physician, Chief Judge and a trusted advisor to King Taharaqa and Queen Kashta. He served as personal tutor to Karnak’s father Shebitus (Luxor) who personally requested that Rhekmira oversee Karnak’s academic and spiritual development.
Master Sage was on board the spacecraft Sakkara when it entered the mysterious black hole and became stranded on Ina Maka. He instructs through personal example and through maxims, fables, tales and symbols in the manner of the African griot but he is equally capable of holding forth and engaging in dialogue on all levels of philosophical and scientific discourse. No one knows his exact age.
