In the Dawn Era, a group of Lith-Crillion along with Hades created the first voidship from a living organism. This team of scientists was led by Anubis, Hades, Ptah, and Set. They saw Set as one for taking short-cuts and of questionable morals, yet the best at creative ways to solve things. After the Âni-Zandân passed its flight tests, Bruh Kreniik decided it was time to put the four to more important tasks. Raised to 5th Rank Angels, they were sent to help lead the armies of the Nawirrûs Covenant.

Late in the God Era, Set stole one of Danzar-Khâl's instruments of creation. In 9450 GE, Set illegally used Danzar-Khâls Surveyor in the creation of the Khazarkar people; three races, the Corralum, Minâth, and Terrant, made to serve a role in Khazarkar society.

It took three centuries for Danzar-Khâl to find Set and his illegal creations. His punishment, and that to his Khazarkar became known as the Otriring Rebalancing. At the Hall Edicts on Lunia, Danzar-Khâl said to Set before his long walk to prison:

You lack the wisdom learned from centuries of creation. The result, three races that are castes, with two serving one. They will be a troublesome people.

Set is said to have replied, they are my people in the way I envision them, just like the Dulun-Khâl modeled on you, forged from primordial muck.

- Danzar-Khâl, to Set before the Otriring Rebalancing - "Castes By Design"

The Khazarkars, then a godless people, took to praying for Set's return. Driven from Otriring, they were rebuilding their civilization on the edge of a desolate plain. Weaker than the peoples around, they prayed for Set's guidance and leadership. By 292 LE, Set had accumulated enough divine power to become a Cult Power.

On 13 Temporal 985, Set killed Jurmalon. By the Rule of Divine Conquest, Set took some of Jurmalon's power, bolstering his powers over the domain of Darkness.

Set became a lessor power with the end of the Eldritch Civil War (1017 - 1027). In this war, the Khazarkar opposing the Eldritch Conclave were fragmented. They were split among the churches of Set and Kebechet, and the long established ruling caste of the Khazarkar, the Minâth-Nôrî. With the Conclave defeated, the Church of Set reigned supreme, beginning a monotheism in the Second Khazarkar Empire that has ruled the last eight centuries.

When the Khazarkar Empire expanded east across Cinazan, the spear-head of this advance was not soldiers but priests of Set. The Tarkazgir spread the word of Set to villages and settlements on the surface and those beneath. The part surface and part subterranean town of Mulun-Dûna has a powerful church of Set. From this town, Set's influence spreads across Faeglor. The drow empire Runelderil is one of the largest empires to be converted by the Khazarkar's Church of Set.

Today a Greater Power, Set's worshiper base is concentrated in the lands of the Khazarkar Empire; a monotheism state enforced by the will of the Pharzîmrâth.

Among Khazarkar high priests, a flail called the Fangs of Set is their preferred weapon. The Fangs of Set have spiked balls which look like coils of a cobra. Another form of this weapon is the Jackals of Set, flail with chains to small iron heads shaped like sinister jackals. These weapons also serve as the holy symbol of Set.
