Do not mock me, Raziel. You, of all of us, should understand an ability bestowed by a limitation overcome.
~ Rahab

Rahab is one of the villains from Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver.


Rahab was formerly a Sarafan Inquisitor, who hunted down vampires ordered by Moebius. He is killed by the wraith Raziel, who came from the future. Centuries later, when Kain rises his vampiric empire, he resurrects Rahab as one of his lieutenants. After Raziel, first-born of Kain's lieutenants, was thrown into the abyss labeled as a traitor, all the vampire clans scattered through Nosgoth. Rahab and his clan were very sensitive to light, even tough the skies of Nosgoth were covered in smoke.

They adapted to live in the water, which was acidic to any other vampire, moving to the Drowned Abbey, a lost city that was half drowned. Rahab mutated into a shark-like creature, being unable to return to land. After Raziel arose from the abyss as a wraith, he discovered the Tomb of Sarafan, where he learned he and his brothers were Sarafan Inquisitors. He finds a way into the Drowned Abbey, and eventually meets Rahab. He remarks how Rahab adapted well to his environment, for one so maladjusted.

Rahab doesn't fall for the taunt, saying he was aware Raziel would come to kill him. Raziel asks if he knew what they all were, but Rahab remarks Kain saved them from themselves. Rahab attacks Raziel by shooting water at him and biting, but Raziel takes advantage of Rahab's weakness, breaking all the glasses of the room they were, making light illuminate the place and frying Rahab.
