Omdurman was the captain of the Baghdad during the final phase of the Flotilla's journey. He, along with Captains Armesto of the Brazilia and Zamudio of the Palestine, were deceived by Captain Sky Haussmann of the Santiago, who had initiated a scheme to arrive at Journey's End first. After said deception resulted in the accidental destruction of the Palestine, Omdurman allied his ship with the Brazilia, and united their colonization efforts.
Centuries after the fact, the descendants of the crews and passengers of the Brazilia and the Baghdad would think of themselves as a single nation.
