Faraj to Herbert in his dying breath

Faraj was a friend of Herbert and a minor character in Remember - Amnesia: The Dark Descent.


Not much is known about him, but according to his appearance in Remember, during 1839 he lived in Algeria together with his nephew Baki. At some point, he came into possession of Johann Weyer's map of the Tomb of Tin Hinan, suggesting that Faraj and Johann knew each other.[speculation]

Old Friends[]

On May 15, 1839, he was visited in Algiers by his old friend Herbert during the latter's visit to the city, on business related to his expedition to the Tomb of Tin Hinan. Faraj intended to hand over Johann Weyer's map to Herbert.

Later that evening, a rebel uprising was triggered in the city. Faraj's nephew, Baki, took Herbert hostage. Faraj tried to disarm the situation, but both he and Baki were shot by Captain Ambroise and his men. Fortunately, Herbert managed to escape to the hotel where Daniel was.

"Herbert, how did we find this place?"
"An old friend back in Algiers gave me a map."
"Why isn’t he with us? Didn’t he want to come?"
"He wanted to Daniel. But things don’t always turn out the way we plan."
