Dr. Ramzi’s nemesis in the strip is the 500-year-old Rughal. After the fall of Baghdad, when the Noor Stones were created, they were kept safe in a domed fortress. In the 1400s, Rughal was one of the guardians of the fortress and began to understand the power of the stones. Trying to harness that power for himself, Rughal blew up the fortress, and the Noor Stones were released. Although Rughal’s physical body was destroyed, he survived as an energy force. Like Ramzi, Rughal searches for the gemstones, but rather than using them for knowledge and unity, he wants their power to control the world.
