Iobane is a core group of Zenj magi guardians of the Doorway to the Red Star, deep in the heart of the Mwangi Expanse. It is led by Warder-Chief Mpondo and is dedicated to keeping outsiders from reaching the Doorway to the Red Star, believing they dishonor their ancestors. They see themselves as the spiritual successors of the Ten Magic Warriors. They are determined to use lethal force against intruders who refuse to heed their warning.[1]


The first Iobane famously fought alongside Old-Mage Jatembe and the Ten Magic Warriors to repel the invasion of the King of Biting Ants through the doorway. The first Iobane had strong psychic powers that helped disconnect the king from his minions.[2]
