Saoud is a resident in Maashava. He became rich by selling cloths at a stall on the market, and now resides all day in a coffeehouse. He is said to have a bit overweight.


He is present in the inn which Will and Aloom stay overnight at when preparing for the battle against the Tualaghi. He tries to find more out about the two but is rebuffed by Aloom.

Saoud is later responsible for Aloom's death after alerting three Tualaghi soldiers to Will and Aloom's activities. Will makes Saoud fetch a healer after Aloom is badly injured and Will promises that if Saoud tries to run for it he will hunt him down no matter what. Saoud does not dare to run and follows Will's commands without question.
