Rahtotep is a Wizard who was raised in Rahadoum , the Kingdom of Man. Raised without the overwatch of the Gods and unfettered in pursuit of magic, Rahotep decided to embrace the flame of knowledge and left his country is pursuit of magical lore.
Rahtotep understands why people follow Gods, however he views Clerics as somewhat enfeebled in that they need to have faith in a higher power and are thus reliant on that power for 'magic'.
Joining the pathfinder Society made sense to Rahtotep as it provided access to magical lore and a chance to travel.
Having spent a majority of his time in Varisia and it's surrounds in the past years, Rahtotep has become quite interested in the power of Thassilonian Magic and the permutations of such magic. He has even adopted the practice of blood magic and while the changes to his body have taken some time to navigate, he believes he has the powers under control.. at least for the moment.
