Title: [Character] Biriir ina-Barqo
Post by: Jubal on February 03, 2015, 10:42:55 PM
Biriir ina-Barqo

Biriir ina-Barqo is a giant, and a ruler or chieftain.1

Being a giant, strength is one of Biriir's key attributes, wearing heavy iron bangles and rings on his arms that required ten men to lift, and wearing a ring that could only be carried by an exceptionally strong pack-camel. He is also the "good leader" of his story, primarily in that he does not forcibly steal his people's property. Mercy, on the other hand, does not seem to be a key feature; he kills Xabbed despite the evil giant begging for his life.2

Brief synopsis
I have so far only been able to find the one story about Biriir; he is shown as a good ruler, and the opponent of the bad ruler Xabbed ina-Kamas, who he defeats and kills.
