The main antagonist in Aduge’s Qasir al-Wasat. This character should stand out of the crowd of servants, guards and dancers, mostly inspired by arabian and syrian garmets. Having an ambiguous origin, some say he was half Faerie, and a vast treasure, both material and of ancient knowledge, we needed to find a different root for al-Saahir. After some experiments toward somewhat elvish features I’ve decided to go with nubian characteristics. The wonderful work of Ludvig Deutsch was a good source of inspiration for his clothing and props.
