he's a bit of a cliché and a stereotype... Al-Rashid made a pretty cool
fighter for Mace: The Dark Age. Believe it or not, this character
archetype hadn't been properly done in the fighting game universe until Mace: The Dark Age, so considering that...
he's actually an original character in the genre. He definitely kinda reminds me of a generic bad guy from Aladdin
On a side note... I wonder if he knows Sinclair. I bet they're old pals and learned from the same sword master.
