"The subject of your attention, the Husam known as Yasbir, plays a prominent part in the spurious history-slash-mythos of the Hassassin Society. A killer, a teacher, a philosopher, a counselor… Do not let any of these identities distract you from the one reality about Yasbir we can unmistakably confirm: that he is a Husam, a special agent of the Hassassin Society. Tracking him down is nigh impossible. No amount of effort will put you within striking distance of him. It will be he who approaches you but, by the time you realize something is wrong, his blade will be lodged between your ribs."
-Dr Michelle Clarkson, assistant director of the Haqqislam Section of the Hexahedron Intelligence Analysis Service. Location classified.
If misinformation is a way of life for the Hassassins, then the Husam, Yasbir, is the one example who epitomises that lifestyle. A living spectre, an enig- matic myth, a ghost story to terrorise new recruits in the secret services of opposing nations. Yasbir doesn’t just espouse the principals of deception, he wrote the book on them.
Rumours insist that Yasbir’s involvement with the Hassassins can be traced back to their founding in the wake of Farhad Khadivar’s murder. There are even those who say that Yasbir was the first Fiday, that he was the one to orchestrate the campaign of vengeance against Khalaf ibn Ahmad. Some reports place Yasbir on the Hassassin’s inner council, the Old Man’s right hand there to ensure the hardest tasks are successfully completed. A few go as far as to say that Yasbir is the Old Man of the Mountain, hiding in plain sight and taunting his enemies.
Regardless of the truth, which will almost certainly never be known, Yasbir is without doubt the preeminent Husam—those deadly special agents of the Hassassin society. Yasbir’s knowledge, wit, and intellect are also renowned away from the subterfuge arena, where he is credited with an insightful knowledge of the Haqqislam doctrine. He is also known to harbour a mischievous temperament that can be surgically aimed to rouse a response, as the Odalisques have recently discovered, much to their chagrin.
"The sixth Subtlety, Ikhfa, is that of the medicine-person, the one who has the knowledge to heal but also to kill quickly and compassionately. It's the Subtlety that helps to identify weaknesses in any person or system and to repair or exploit them. It's the critical skill of the operative tasked with saving the mission, the one to whom Allah Himself can entrust the salvation of the Search for Knowledge."
