Haroun is an Alasiyan of average height and built. He dresses according to the desert nomad tradition, even though his clan has been living in the farming village of Taham for a long time.


Haroun was born in the village of Taham, the location of the oldest temple of the Eternal Truth in Nicostenia. Haroun's grandfather is the elder prayer leader of the temple, and has personally instructed his grandson in the Way of the Scholar.

Haroun has chosen the path of the Itinerant priest rather than that of the prayer leader, since he hopes to follow the path of al-Kalim's pilgrimage. Haroun was always fascinated by the tales of the prophet journey to the dwelling of the Old Man of the Sea, one of the Immortal Guardians, so he choose to set off with his fellow scholar and childhood friend Hakim ibn Yezid. They have travelled to the east, to see the Sea of Dawn.

They have reached the town of Cubis, the second most important settlement in Nicostenia. Here, they dwell in the local zawiya while they plan the next stage of their pilgrimage.


Haroun and his relatives are strong supporters of the Preceptors' faction. This is a popular stance in the Emirate of Nicostenia, but not in the neighbouring Emirate of Abbashan. As Taham is in the north-western part of Nicostenia, near the Abbashan border, there are occasional visits from members of the Kin faction at the temple of Taham, so Haroun is accustomed to dealing with them.

Haroun is outgoing and cheerful, and a born optimist -- all useful traits for an Itinerant, who is supposed to spend most of his time travelling from village to village, carrying news and helping the local scholars.
