Abdullah and his team were ordered to excavate the Tomb of Tin Hinan by Herbert. At the time of Daniel's entrapment in the tomb's Orb Chamber, he was most likely there to evacuate Daniel, and presumably took the role as the exploration leader.
By the time Herbert located the second Orb, strange murdering began to cause chaos in the excavation team. He was immediately sent to the French consulate to report on the current situation, but The Shadow, the true mastermind behind the massacre, maimed him. Abdullah was left in critical state when the French officials found him, as he deliriously reported that something terrible attacked the team. A search party was sent to locate the other workers, but none of them, including Herbert himself, were found.
2nd of July 1839 Edit
I received a letter today from the Algerian governor's office disclosing the fate of Herbert's expedition. About a week after my departure, Abdullah, one of the men traveling with us, returned from the desert. He was badly injured, as if maimed by a lion. The man rambled deliriously about the expedition being attacked by something horrible.
The French quickly dispatched a search party to look for the expedition. After searching for days, they found the camp abandoned without any trace of Herbert or his men. Tomorrow I'll retrieve the things they recovered from Herbert's tent at the customs house. I don't know what to make of it, but I'm worried for him.
- Abdullah was the only survivor of the Shadow's rampage. It is unknown how he managed to survive.
