Chains of Silver and Blood
Zao Khan is a sixty-years old man, never seen without his fez and sporting ever-changing extravagant facial hair, that he combs daily with precious oils. He loves flashy clothing and accessories.
He has a weird sense of humor, but is usually well-liked by those who meet him, usually being dismissed as a harmless old man.
His right hand is scared in a very deliberate pattern.
Zao Khan is a treasure seeker and a self-described scavenger lord. He has made and lost numerous fortunes around the Dreaming Sea, and spends his life digging around strange ruins to find treasure and strange objects to sell to the highest bider.
He is good friends with the merchant-prince Ysmir, and both have participated in a few expeditions together in the past.
