ORIGIN: Ibrahim lived practically as a slave on a Moroccan freighter since the time he was 8. He has been all over the Med and the Atlantic. When he was 19, his ship foundered. During the 33 day ordeal adrift at sea, he led the other survivors in survival rituals, was credited with praying down rain, caught the most fish, etc. He of course credits Allah for all this and his powers. (Whether his experiences and blessing are genuine or psychological depends on how you as GM run your supernatural world) In my world, he is the genuine article.
TACTICS: more of a middleman and courier than fighter, aka the Lebanese Connection
COSTUME: inconspicuous coats & suits.
PERSONALITY: insightful, perceptive, devout though moderate muslim
BACKGROUND NOTES: His role in the one campaign he's been used in was a contact for dealers and mid-eastern scholars, street people, or cargo. His current "job" is as the first mate on a large Atlantic cruise liner. He keeps the ships books and now he orders the deck boys around. In a pinch, he also fills in for the captain on the bridge. The "Jasmine Queen" calls in tourist ports from Beirut, Jaffa, Alexandria, Monte Carlo, Naples, Venice, Cadiz, Marakesh, Lisbon, Azores, Newport News, Bermuda, Kitty Hawk, D.C., etc. As such he is able to carry small items to and from nearly anywhere. Never gets busted by customs either, strangely enough.
