Hashashin is the one who has stopped the endless fragments of chaos from beyond Alyaelli, the gate north of Valencia. He is the master of the sands who crossed the desert in search of the truth behind the Blackstar.
Hashashin is a melee & mid-ranged character who uses the crescent-shaped Shamshir and the Haladie which carries the power of sand magic to become one with the sands and unleash unpredictable attacks.
He quickly disappears from the sight of his enemies to give them mortal strikes or creates an endless sandstorm to confuse them. With his smooth yet sharp movements, Hashashin fights his enemies unceasingly without ever being consumed by the sands himself.

Until then, we will watch out for the darkness from this place
and continue doing so to our very last day."
That was the one tenet that, along with the scattered crimson ashes, he and his comrades have surrendered to for their entire lives.
However, three years had passed since the Blackstar fell in the far-off lands of the west
yet the paradise the aged teachers desperately yearned for would never come to pass.
Only those endless monsters creeping out of that black pit were still suffocating him.
"Hear me! For I am the curved blade of Aal,
the master who shall unleash his raging winds and sands."
Because only he was able to slash the chaos, he endured the fierce training and the bodies of his fallen brothers littering the battlefields through faith alone.
The one who broke the flow of these filthy days was none other than a foreigner named Kayal Nesser.
The son of a concubine to the Nesser Royal House of Valencia and also next-in-line to be the "One at the End" or Qabal's successor, an old comrade with whom he had stopped the fragments of chaos for a long time, ran away.
"The Blackstar does not descend upon us for there are those among us who lack the faith.
The souls which can reach paradise are the ones awakened to the horrors of the battlefield.
In the end, Kayal failed to wash off the blood of a hypocrite from him."
He was pushed to the blood-covered battlefield as he had always been, waiting for redemption, but his doubts did not cease.
"Why do only people of this Sanctuary call that thing the Redstar and disdain it
when everyone else in the world calls it the Blackstar?"
The flame of suspicion, once ignited, could not be extinguished.
The desertion of Kayal, the existence of the monsters, the definition of redemption, the identity of the Blackstar.
At the end of all his questions, there was only suspicion about his teachers' lessons and the truth kept within the Scripture of Aal.
In the end, he secretly boarded a boat that went to the mainland and a black energy that had been watching him for a long time started to draw near him, with its red eyes shining.
Hear me, as the bush needs water to grow, and the flowers must be tended to before they wither, send your blessings of the holy sands before your servant dries into dust.
A wandering soul cries out into the night sky. The sands of the hourglass ran thin, as the soul found no answer to the Blackstar. With time running out, the soul's fleeting life seems certain to end.
Let me overpower the certainty of death.
"Aal's faithful servant. What causes you to cry out in a place like this?
Nourish yourself with my words, carry yourself back to the fortress and rest."
The words resonated with the lost soul. His mission to discover the truth of the Blackstar had reached an unfortunate end.
But to return to a fortress filled of those who deny the teachings?
Those old men who revel in the power they have over the warriors of Aal?
Perhaps he should obey the command, return to where his journey began and turn his brothers back towards the true path, and not that of the false leaders.
"Of all Aal’s servants, I appeared for you, and in this apparition I will reveal the truth. Time unlocks the secrets you seek.
Now that I have revealed this truth, return and pray, for there you shall fulfill the rest of your mission.
Take comfort and spend the rest of your time under Aal's blessing."
The first prophet, Barhan, took the words of Aal and committed them to scripture.
The final prophet, Kayal, spoke of the Blackstar’s fall and how it would open up a Paradise to the north.
However the Blackstar did fall, yet Paradise had not opened its shrouded gates.
And in that moment, the mist in his mind began to fade, and clarity was once more his.
Yet why does the prophet narrow his eyes?
Stand aside false vision, for those of pure intention would not speak with a serpent's tongue.
In that moment the ground around them shifted as thousands of sand colored snakes slithered away, revealing a familiar sight in front of the soul and the vision.
"Take stock of your surroundings servant. Your birthright surrounds you. Breathe in the city, let it fill your very being.
Worship me and I will ensure that your blood sits on the throne of Valencia for the rest of time."
The serpentine shadow whispers of a paradise filled with false hope...
For you are Ibedor, birthed from the shadowy despair of this world.
Servant of Hadum! With Aal on my side, I shall not falter!
Prepare, foul creature, for today will be your last.
For I am the blade of Aal, wielder of the arid sands.
