Touphraxis (December 21, 1498 - July 3, 1572), was a Tusheti historian who invented the Touphraxi orthography in 1545 to write the Tushets language in the Latin alphabet. It was somewhat based on the previously used Evgali orthography created over 500 years earlier. Touphraxi was an eccentric who locked himself away in the mountains for 15 years in which he claimed to have become enlightened in the Dushanist ways. He never married, and took several drugs to ensure that his urges stay low. He was also known as Pəxel-üb, or Wood-man, for his eccentric habits and the fact that he was often seen wandering in the woods of the woods. It was love that finally destroyed him. Even though he took many drugs to try and prevent it, he still loved with all his heart. Thinking it would help, he locked himself in the mountain-castle of Šežbir and wrote millions of poems and stories.
