A charlatan and member of the Usiij
Ashran, although a wizard of at least some skill, ran a small emporium of potions, charms, and prophecies, all fake. He employed members of a thieves’ guild in Pashow to steal Seemi Qadi’s map. When the map was retrieved, it was discovered that Ashran was a member of the Usiij and he was arrested and taken into the city watch’s custody.
Ashran is a man who dresses in dark purple robes and a matching turban. His beard is wiry and is thrust forward so that it never touches his chest.
