Qadi Rachid ibn Karim
Rachid ibn Karim is a fierce warrior of the Bedine
peoples of the Anouroch desert in the Forgotten Realms setting. He has
great skill for a warrior of his youthful age, but the Anouroch is a
fierce land. He has honed his skills against creatures that many
archmages of the Realms would run in fear from. And his reasons for
fighting them were simply for survival, finding shelter for his people
and himself from the freezing winds that blow across the Sword each
winter, not for such lofty ideals as treasure that lure others into
facing such creatures.
Rachid left the desert 4 years ago, hunting down the Zhentarim slavers
that had taken his sister. This short, brutal mission was too late,
his sister had already been sold. He tracked her as far as the huge
city of Calimport, in the kingdom of Calimshan, before finding the
trail untraceable. He has since resided in the kingdom of Calimshan
trying to find any trace of his sister, warring with the various
underworld figures that deal in the slave trade as he does so.
He has assembled a small band of like minded individuals,and taken to
attacking the slave caravans from out of the desert, and freeing the slaves.
Until he finds his sister he shall be a thorn in the side of all the slavers of Calimshan.

-bonus proficiency: Riding Camel specialization (an improved version of the riding land-based proficiency, allowing greater feats of acrobatics while mounted)
-improved mount quality - any mount in the care of a desert rider for more than a week improves in health such that it improves one rank in quality (nags become normal, high spirited becomes charger, etc.), this effect only lasts one week after the mount leaves the care of a desert rider, hence they often gain a reputation as dishonest when they sell horses, as seemingly healthy horses get sick soon after being sold.
