|| Towers are measured by their shadows; great men by their slanderers.
|| — Abu Bakr, Caliph of Semphar
Abu Bakr was the Caliph of Semphar during the mid–14th century DR.
Abu Bakr ruled Semphar from the capital of Dhaztanar. He resided in the magnificent royal palace of Dar al-Kalif.
He was known to use his treasury to support places of learning, and colleges for wizards.
He also gave large donations to temples, but was known to persecute others, including those of Ilmater, as he feared they would rally the oppressed people of Semphar against him.
