Diop Beha was a student at the Imperial University of Carthak's School of Mages Upper Academy, and one of Arram Draper's roommates. His first term at the university was in the autumn of 437 HE. Diop was from the Zallara Province.
Diop and his friend, Laman Hamayd immediately took exception to sharing a room with Arram, because he was so much younger than them. When they attacked Arram with their gifts, the house proctor, Master Muriq broke it up.
Diop was a black boy with hair shaved close to his scalp, and intense brown eyes.
