Djeru is an initiate and leader of Tah crop on Amonkhet.



Djeru used to be best friends with Samut and Nakht. After the death of Nakht outside the Hekma, he became a devout follower of the Gods and estranged from Samut.[1]

Trial of Ambition[]

Djeru survived Bontu's Trial of Ambition, despite the bumbling actions of Gideon Jura.[2]

Trial of Zeal[]

Samut appealed to Hazoret to stop Djeru taking the last Trial. For this, she and the Gatewatch were forced by the Gods to fight the Trial of Zeal against Djeru and the other worthy initiates.[3] In a surprise move Samut managed to join forces with Djeru, convincing him to pray for her life to Hazoret. In exchange she prevented Djeru's death by the spear of Hazoret, though Djeru didn't appreciate the gesture. This was just moments before the Revelation.

Joining forces[]

Djeru joined forces with Samut when the attacks began. Together with Hapatra, they witnessed the death of Rhonas, Kefnet and Oketra.[4] Afterwards, they were commanded by Hazoret to protect the survivors, to evacuate the city and to hide among the desert sands.[5] Delegating that job to Hapatra, they returned to the damaged city and were able to save Hazoret from her fight with the Scorpion God.[6]
