Rashid is a 15-year-old orphan whose parents died in a Formian attack south of Taklamakan when he was 11. He remembers the attack vividly; the Formians burrowing up out of ambush holes and raking down the few caravan guards, his mother screaming as his father, a merchant, was cut down.
Perhaps scarred by the memory, Rashid is a quiet but intense boy with a great respect for the desert. He has only been on several journeys across the sands, but he survived his Kel Ahagger and has the traditional blue eyes of his people. Approximately 5’6" with black hair and a darker complexion, Rashid yearns to become a skilled adventurer and lead caravans. Though he has never served as the lead guide for a caravan, he has been offering his services to travelers in the Guide Market for several months now. His fee is 200 gold, less than half what others would offer.
Rashid longs to bring justice to the Formians for their attacks on his parents. But he is even more driven by his dream to become a prestigious outfitter, like Aksa.
