Attafei [at ta ˈfɛ i] (born as Adubum) was the son of Kurund and leader (atej) of the Kurundasti Tej, who together with Ervëa of Caďinas destroyed Munkhâsh, the demonic realm which had terrorized eastern Ereláe for three thousand years.
He took the name Attafei, "Almighty" as a manifesto of his ambitions and started his reign by invading Tyellakh. Because the pagan Tžuro were skeptical of their zealous new ruler and his Jippirasti faith, Attafei made a wager with them: if the Tžuro could conquer Munkhâsh, it would be proof of Jippir's power and they must convert; if not, he would abdicate, and they could advance on Skouras or Axunai, which tempted them with their legendary wealth.
Attafei was a stubborn man. In battle he simply pushed his men forward; if he met resistance he threw men at it; if the obstacle was insurmountable he went around it; if the odds were hopeless he trusted in Jippir. This strategy proved successful and in 1650 the Tžuro broke through to the sea. The Eynleyni had all surrendered, and the Tžuro now faced the demons themselves. Of course they quaked when the atej told them to enter the marshes of the ktuvoks, but Attafei, determined as always, simply strode into the infernal waters. His men marvelled, and lost their fear. So great a god as the one who gave such a courage to Attafei would not let him fail.
Finally, in 1667 the demons were defeated. It is said that Attafei and Ervëa met face to face in middle of the swamp. When ther Caďinorian courteously said "Your god has granted us victory," the atej replied "It is so, praise Jippir". Whether this was true or not, the god's popularity suddenly rose; 200,000 warriors converted to Jippirasti in one day. The atej preached to the conquered Eynleyni too, but they remained loyal to Gelalhát, he decided to plunder them instead. He divided the conquered lands into estates for his generals, assigning Eynleyni for them as slaves. With Munkhâsh conquered, the next task of the believers was the conquest of polytheistic Skouras. At the age of seventy, Attafei began to make plans for the conquest. However, these plans had to be fulfilled by his successors Kutaj and Busiŋgal as Attafei died in 1684.
