Shawar is reinstated as Vizier of Cairo with the help of Nur ad-Din Mahmud bin Zengi. Shawar is intended to merely be a figurehead, however, and Nur ad-Din's general, Shirkuh, is supposed to be the true ruler of Egypt.

Shawar is aware of this and does what he can to exclude Shirkuh from Cairo and decision-making. His attempts fail, and soon Shawar will be calling on Amalric, king of Jerusalem and Christian leader, for aid against his own Muslim allies.
