Thank you all for your nice comments!
Name: Ashim Kamal
Ashim is a devout follower of Barrakis, the deity of assassinations and murders. His origins are shrouded in mystery (I don't know where in Ansium a person of obvious Arab heritage would come from). He offers his specialities for hire and is especially proficient in using his poisoned serpent-ornamented dagger. Ashim Kamal creates his own poisons and does not rely on the concoctions of witches, shamans or shady clerics. He masters several extremely rare recipies for extraordinary poisons ranging from poisons that cause slow and bloody death all the way into poisons that cause delayed mental instabilities of the recipient. His skills in herbal lore allow him to create healing salves and potions as well, but he uses such non-destructive ailments onto himself only - even if good money would fall his way by selling healing herbs.
Ashim has found Calishem to be perfect as his base of operations many years ago and nowadays his reputation is such that he can actually pick lucrative marks that don't require him to spend days or weeks travelling around the world. Ashim is a man of high intellect, but also he suffers from an addiction to herbs that make him fearless and more focused in his work. The herbs in question he can't cultivate on his own, but instead need to get them from his underworld contacts as many such herbs are deemed illegal to possess and consume.
