1.  Appearance

Nadir looks, in every way, like a Saluki in body and form. The only Coyote influence evident to the trained eye is the denser, coarse fur across his body, half-pointed ears, slight angular differences in his face, and a more compact musculature. His fur is a soft cream color with a white ruff, muzzle and underside. His legs and the tip of his tail is also white. The characteristic feathering on the back of his legs, tail, and ears is present. He has a noticeable group of scars on his left lip. He occasionally can be seen wearing the same navy-blue abaya as Kadar (though his is lined with sheep's wool), but he is more commonly seen with high cut cotton robes and a red sash to keep it secure. The tailoring of the clothing allows for fluid, unrestricted movement.

Optime

66 lbs (29.9 kg)
28 in (73 cm)

121 lbs (54.8 kg)
39 in (99 cm)

153 lbs (69.3 kg)
6ft 2in (74 in) (170.1 cm)

A trim, deep-barreled form with a sloping underside and long legs. Ropy muscles twist around his shoulders, legs, and hindquarters; he is built entirely for speed and agility.

He is much more brutish in this form, as all of his strength is forced into his shoulders and forelegs. His hands are semi-dexterous. A form intended for close combat and overpowering the enemy.

Tall, with squared shoulders and a narrow chest. He is all angles and limbs. And, despite his weight, appears thin as a rail. He is very strong and very fast in this form, as a result of his strenuous training.

Modifications

  • Scars:
    • An uneven group of cuts on his left lip from Kadar throwing a rock at him when they were children, LOL!
    • Scars on the palms of his hands from rope burn.
    • ---

Clothes

  • Wears a white thawb made of sheep's wool in the winter months, and one made of cotton in the summer. It is cut abnormally short, with other areas altered to give more freedom of movement.
  • Worn out leather gauntlets.
  • A hood made of thicker weave cotton with holes cut for his ears, sometimes pulled up.
  • Beneath the thawb is a pair of loose cotton pants cut above his ankles.
  • Occasionally he will wear a dark navy-blue abaya embroidered with a blanket stitch in white.

2.  Personality

Nadir is brash and bold. His sense of humor (in its rare appearances) is antagonistic, and he employs a gratuitous amount of sarcasm to most arguments. He is unafraid of strife, and commonly uses straightforward tactics to get information. But he also has a habit of getting into trouble because his mouth can run amok. He is reckless and ambitious; the perfect antithesis to Kadar's caution and obedient subservience. His fighting style is all brute force and strength, but the amount of finesse and grace he possesses is almost otherworldly. He isn't sensitive to the needs of others, and is mostly out for himself (and, as an extension, Kadar). The young man has a surprising soft side, but it is difficult to bring out of him.

3.  Relationships

He's obsessed with Kadar ibn-Tariq and they bone sometimes. :|

4.  History

They grew up together as children, and were paired off as partners by their Master to be trained. He took it seriously and exceeded Kadar in skill. Nadir wasn't born into the organization. His mother died during the fighting in Jerusalem and brought north by a female relative who didn't have the means to care for him. He never knew his father (ironically the mixed blood male was distantly related to Kadar's own father. The two coyote-bloods worked together as traders in Egypt and Jerusalem until the fighting drove them back to western Europe).
