African - King of Kordofan. Brother of Sali. The custom was that each king was killed at a time decreed by the priests, who read the stars. Akaf proposed to take the story teller, Far-li-mas, and his own sister Sali with him when his time came. She induced Far-li-mas to recite such marvellous stories that the priests forgot the stars and no date was ever fixed for the king's death. Occasionally identified as Akaf.
