Towers are measured by their shadows; great men by their slanderers.
  — Abu Bakr, Caliph of Semphar[2]

Abu Bakr was the Caliph of Semphar during the mid–14th century DR.[1]


Abu Bakr ruled Semphar from the capital of Dhaztanar. He resided in the magnificent royal palace of Dar al-Kalif.[1]

He was known to use his treasury to support places of learning, and colleges for wizards.[1]

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.[1]
