Like most Djinn, Indivaar came from Ubar, a grande mystical city located in what is now know as the Rub Al'Khali desert.. It is said that Allah created Angels, then man, then the Djinn - who resided in the Atlantis of the Sands. Much to his younger sister's protests, once old enough, Indivaar was given task to protect Tell-Basta (or Bubastis) an ancient Egyptian city located at the Nile's delta and considered Lower Egypt. As the region was designated to the Egyptian feline goddesses, Indivaar came to know quite a few personally. He lived through the first few dynasties unnoticed, but during the Third Dynasty, Indivaar was discovered by Imhotep, at the time just a commoner. Reluctantly, Indi helped the man to become high priest and chancellor to the pharaoh, Sekhemkhet. Following Imhotep's death, he met his first deity; Bast, who was benevolent yet fierce, and the two formed a strong friendship for his duration in Egypt. It was because of the Goddess, that he was able to not only secure a safe burial for his dear friend, and Pharaoh during the 4th dynasty, Khafra -- who had built the second largest pyramid in Giza, as well as the temple and the Great Sphinx in honor of his wife -- but Bast had also made it possible for Khafra to be resurrected centuries later after Indivaar cashed in his 'IOU' chip.
Indivaar was fortunate enough to not have been enslaved by the pharaohs of Egypt, which only fueled his admiration for the culture. It wasn't until later in his life, during 900 BC, that -like all Djinn at the time- Indi was forced to stand behind the humans in Solomon's court, who in turn, sat behind the prophets. It was a bittersweet time in his life, as the enslavement had reunited him with his sister. The Djinn remained in the service of Solomon, who had placed them in bondage, and had ordered them to perform a number of tasks. Like men and other beasts under his rule, they were all kept in order and ranks. Eventually when Solomon died while he was leaning on his staff, he remained upright, propped on his staff. The Djinn thought he was still alive and supervising them, so they continued to work. They realized the truth only when Allah (God) sent a creature to crawl out of the ground and gnaw at Solomon's staff until his body collapsed.
After his servitude to Solomon, Indivaar stayed alongside his sister for centuries, both living as human commoners as to not draw attention to themselves. Because of the King's greed, magic was gaining far more interest among humankind. Eventually, this led them back to Egypt, which had seen Persian kings, the beautiful Cleopatra, and been conquered twice over.
And then his sister was bound by a witch. Indivaar abandoned the life he had started to carve out in order to save his baby sister. She was to be enslaved, her magic used endlessly for others soulless profit. And so he traded his magic for hers, offering his loyalty and his magic to the Harker family. Even without a Djinn, they were a powerful family of witches known for using the dark arts. For two centuries, they used his magic against all types of supernatural beings, but specifically against their rival coven -- until his Master was killed, simultaneously setting Indivaar free.
This time, he was saved by his sister -- who returned with him to Ubar, where Bast was waiting. Indi vowed never to have a "Master" again, to protect his sister, and to somehow try to make things right for the horrible things that had been done to the witch's coven. However, he did ask a favor of Bast; to resurrect Khafra, the only best friend he had ever made and felt a connection to. It wasn't all bros and hoes at first, and for a while Indivaar had wondered if he'd made the right choice for his friend. They both had a lot of learning to do about the world, and so they decided to do it together.
Their travels around the world abruptly ended after he received word that the Harker witches were headed to Seattle; where the only descendant of the Boone lineage was attending University.
