Jazirat al-Sayyad, or the Hunter, was an elongated island located in the Nada al-Hazan achipelago within the Crowded Sea.[1]


Jazirat al-Sayyad had extremely rocky shores, marking it as dangerous sailing territory for mariners. Stormy swells and whirling waters threatened to shatter any approaching ship against the rocks.[1]


This island was the home of the magnificent Sayyad bloodline of horses, making it a tempting destination for brave or greedy sailors. The herds were carefully watched over by Herdsman genies who were bound long ago by a powerful sha'ir.[1]

Buying a horse from the genies often required an extraordinary payment and only buyers possessing admirable qualities were considered.[1]
