Kashim was born in the Calimshan, namely Calimport, the sprawling capital of the desert, the biggest city in Faerun a place of long history and deep pockets. His father is a native from Luskan , a profiteering merchant, who settled in the great city to blossom his trade empire, which was modest by the standards of many in the Upper Sabans of society. Although this is only half true… (Otherwise known to Kashim his Father is an exile from Chessenta) He inherited many of his looks and business savvy from his Paternal line.
His mother on the other hand, is a native Calishite. A local to Calimport and a notable Thief, and its from her, he inherited his brazen and bold attitude for getting what he wanted, when he wanted. It was her prompt in no small measure that lead to him being sent out of the desert and into the wide world to make his ‘own’ ends and not to return until he had done so.. A harsh lesson for most, but from a woman who grew on the streets, you’d expect little else.
He decided on that, to head well away from Faerun, a stale and well plundered continent.. instead heading to the border kingdoms a land of would be pretenders and bold pioneers to seek his fortune…
