Basad yn Malik el Ostak was the leader of el Kahmir clan in Memnon in 1370 DR, chosen by that family to oversee the assassins', thieves', smugglers', and slavers' guilds there. He was young at the time and loyal to the syl-pasha.


Basad was a lifelong friend of the "Pasha of Assassins", Rahim el Ornadas, who headed the assassins' guild, and he was the older brother to Ottad el Ostak, who ran the thieves guild.[1]
