Random thought, for a mix-and-match use of historical elements - you say you want the Mamluks in some form. Why not put a twist on them, and have them be a rogue legion of the Roman/Byzantine equivalent that's seized power? So they'd still have the flavor of a military caste running a state, but they'd feel a little different.

And then you could have the Varangian equivalent (because, come on, you've gotta have Varangians!) start getting ideas they could do the same thing, and maybe have rogue Varangian generals playing the role of the Normans in Sicily, with the Empire growing increasingly worried about the loyalty of all its remaining armies.
