Said is a 9th centurary street thief, living on the streets of baghdad. An Orphan of a prostitute and one of her customers. he was born on the streets whenhis mother decided to keep him despite this meant being thrown out of her brothel for it, she died when he was 7, but by that time Said had had a lifetimes experience on surviving on the streets of Baghdad.
He misses his mother but is still at a loss why she kept him. On the whole he does not have time for suc deep thinking, he's too busy trying to avoid people who want to punish him for taking food and small items of worth to stay alive.
He need's a break something to change the direction of his life, before it's cut cruelly but unsurprisingly short.
