-Guardsman Issam Ag Bakr: Cocky/Addict. A Bazir from the promethium kingdom ruled by Arwa the Pearl, Issam is an eager young man zealous dedicated to a society by the people, for the people. His cockiness and fearlessness under fire is a side effect of his crippling spur addiction. He is deeply in debt to his local dealer and is desperate to pay him off.
-Guardsman Bartleby: Leech/Psycho. Bartleby is a Boog bandit, a long time member of the infamous Sidewinder gang out in the Ghoba desert. After being captured during a disasturous raid on a Boog settlement, Bartleby was given a choice: Serve with the Blazing Trail, or swing from the gallows. For this opportunistic scum, the choice was obvious. Now a proud member of the People’s Revolution, Bartleby continues his career of theft and murder under the banner of progress and syncretism
-Guardsman Shakat al-Husaam: Psychotic/Never Bathes. This scrawny man, although clearly al-Isman, claims no tribal heritage. He is violently deranged, refusing to bathe for fear some dark entity will possess him unless he’s coated with the blood of his enemies. When he’s not staring at his knives he’s telling everybody about how “The Hateful Year” will consume them all

From as early as he can remember, Kassem has had a deep disdain for authority figures.
He frequently acted in open rebellion to his conformist family, and later to those authorities meant to maintain the status quo and enforce laws and edicts.
Gaining his experience on the streets, Kassem survived through his own sheer will to live and adaptability in the hostile urban environment.
With a shocking instinct to cause organized chaos, he found himself leading a band of outlaws, who stole and extorted in order to survive. Soon enough, they caught the attention of certain criminal factions who paid to use the talents of Kassem and his gang of young rebels.
Here, his creativity formed in him a natural predator. He set up ambushes, organized devastating sabotages, stole important information, and even kidnapped for his employers.
These skills would grow sharper by the year, and when the opportunity presented itself for him to leave the hive and put his talents to use against the reviled Tau authorities, he eagerly signed on to the organized human opposition, knowing that every one of his successes wouldn’t just be a petty way of making a living, but would actually come to make some measurable difference to topple the regime he so despises.
Sahid Marqus – Kassem’s father. His willingness to conform to the way of life under the occupying Tau pushed a deep rift between he and Kassem. The last time they saw eachother was when Kassem returned home several years after leaving to give his mother some money. Sahid, infuriated by what he knew of his son’s “business”, forced him out of his home.
Tommik – Kassem’s right-hand outlaw. Tommik was an orphan, younger than Kassem by about 5 years. They both survived with one another for years, living as brothers. When the outlaw band was formed, it’s said the two orchestrated the greatest feats of the group. While they were close as brothers, their brotherly love wasn’t enough to keep them together when Kassem made the decision to join the resistance.
Ulhid – The contractor. Ulhid became the middleman, and negotiator for Kassem’s band. He dealt with the criminal factions who wished to contract them to do their dirty work. He became something of a fatherly figure, to the young band of rebels, some of the younger ones even calling him “uncle”. He disappeared a week before Kassem joined the resistance.
