Ghazi Muttawi'ah

Background

Every Hassassin is ready to fight for their cause, should the need arise. This includes the scholars, the priests, and the civilians. Every operative receives enough training to operate basic combat tools—a chain rifle, a jammer, smoke grenades—and will not hesitate to use them if they are called upon to support another Hassassin. These troops, rudimentarily trained but absolutely committed, are known as Ghazi Muttawi’ah.[1]

Ghazi ( غازي , "Warrior" in Arabic) is an individual who participated in ghazw (غزو, ġazw), meaning military expeditions or raiding. The latter term was applied in early Islamic literature to expeditions led by the Islamic prophet Muhammad, and later taken up by Turkic military leaders to describe their wars of conquest. (Ed: Muttawi'ah doesn't translate properly. It possibly means "متهاوي or "staggering" presumably "irregular warrior." Ghazi is a historical and not modern term.)

These troopers are usually (but not always) locals living around the Human Sphere who are committed to Haqqislamite values in general, and Hassassin priorities in specific. They can be called on at a moment's notice whenever Haqqislam spec-ops groups are operating. They could be retired Hassassins, local contacts, sympathizers, extremely junior members, support staff, or anyone else on the periphery of the Hassassin cult.

Ghazi may not even be followers of the Haqqislamite faith; they may be observers or sympathetic locals given easy-to-use weapons like chain rifles and told "be a distraction." Locals with remote backups are preferred over cubes in order to maximize operational security.

It takes an extremely motivated or foolhardy adventure-seeking individual to sign up for such work. They aren't keyed into Hassassin comms and they might not even know what the mission is. But they're eager to help. How can you say no?


Equipment

Ghazis carry the E/Marat (Power) which are short-range EMP transmitters with parabolic deflectors to channel the pulse and integrated batteries.
