From Burning Wiki
Note: This character was burned using the very first iteration of the Burning Sand rules, so there may be some discrepancies in resource costs, trait names, etc.
Concept: "Patriotic" Fellahin who has joined the Jihad more for nationalist reasons than religious, and to kill some outlanders.
Character Name: Mujaahid Abdul-Fellahin (formerly Bashaar)
Background: Bashaar was a fairly typical Fellahin, but had a streak of wonderlust. Upon becoming a man (of 13) he set out to explore his planet. He spent some time near a Noble town, and there met Diana, and they fell quickly in love. Though she pledged her life to his, her parents found out and had Bashaar arrested. He was beaten, and released into the desert, instructed to never again enter the town. He spent the next several years learning the ways of the desert, and the ancient ways of the Fellahin. When the Mahdi began his rise to power, Bashaar joined the Jihad, eventually becoming a Fedayin, and switched to his new name. His first campaign was to conquer the town he had been banned from; when he got there he learned Diana and her family had fled some time before.
