Alim Zangi was a powerful sha'ir living on Jazirat al-Sayyad in the Crowded Sea.[1]


Alim was the sha'ir responsible for binding a group of herdsman genies to watch over the fabulous Sayyad bloodline of horses on the island of Jazirat al-Sayyad.[1]

Alim tricked the genies into servitude, but over the centuries the genies have taken great pride into what the Sayyad horses have become.[1]
