The Caliph was the chief executive of the Thaarn on Crandor and said to be the only person who had ever seen the Thaarn. He met Avon, Vila, Tarrant and Cally outside the Liberator and offered to negotiate a price for the ship, which the Thaarn wanted cut up for its herculanium. When Tarrant objected, the Caliph used a neuronic whip on him, causing him pain. He then entered the ship and interrogated Dayna with the whip. She told him where he could find Cally but, when he asked about Orac, stated truthfully but misleadingly that there had never been a person of that name on board.

The Caliph assigned Avon and Tarrant to work with chief technician Groff and sent Cally to the Thaarn. He questioned Tarrant about Orac but Tarrant's answers made it sound like Orac was a bald dwarf. He sent a team to begin cutting up the Liberator and was frustrated at the lack of explanations when they were killed by a security system. After the Liberator crew escaped, the Caliph discovered Groff attempted to turn off the gravity field that held Crandor together. The Caliph used the neuronic whip on him, killing him, but Groff still managed to throw the lever and the Caliph was killed when Crandor exploded. (C: Dawn of the Gods)
