The Nidbakh Component is another standard enforcer of the Bavel Macrostructure’s regime, along with the Guf Soldiers and Sotem Stoppers. Unlike the others, these henchmen are purely mechanical and made from ancient technology.
Components primarily serve mid-tier Bavel officials and address their inconvenient tasks. While these robots are powerful enough to kill dissenters, their main job is performing cover-ups and scrubbing up evidence with their floor sweepers. They’re also surprisingly durable since they can carry heavy loads and reassemble themselves when they fall apart.

Nidbakh is a dense district on the outer edge of Mattanah City. The area sits on an archaeological dig site of past glorious civilizations, including a giant wall of striated strata.
The district presents itself as a refreshing oasis amid its arctic surroundings. Officials are proud of the city’s perfectly clean streets, and the luggage-shaped buildings gleam. Palm trees overshadow luxurious homes and numerous glitzy stores.
But the tyrannical tycoon Ikhavod Kaved rules over the area’s dullard constituents, oppressing them to the point of illness. A heavy undercurrent of anger, sadness and nostalgia permeates the place — to the point that gravity is stronger there.
Ikhavod Kaved represents the Liver in Beli Ya’al’s Yetzer Ra’ organization. He oppressively governs Mattanah City’s Nidbakh sector and earns abundant wealth by owning the Shutummu food distribution company on the side.
Kaved is a difficult, hardhearted man to work with, because he is dimwitted, insensible and often drunk. He gets vehemently furious over trifling inconveniences. Ever fussy, he carries a palm branch broom to sweep the dust from the ground where he treads.
Regardless, he considers himself a distinguished gentleman, and he demands honor and exaltation from just about everyone (except Beli Ya’al). Fueled by delicacies, his engorged body has gravitational powers that can force people to fall on their faces before him.
