The village of Utuseb lies several days south of Simurgh.
Rarely do either settlements have much to do with the other.

Some say that the rise of the cult of Apis in Simurgh has dark and ulterior motives, the priests of Apis of course maintain their good intentions.
One of which is to protect the faithful of Simurgh against heretical and evil sorcery, the kind that Ekwensu the foul necromancer of Utuseb practices.

Ekwensu of course says different.

His magic is an older, more primal and thus a more natural magic than those practised by 'civilised' men.

Who is to say for sure, maybe you can travel to Utuseb and talk with Ekwensu in his cave?
