Omid is from the Horizon clan, home to a long legacy of the fiercest, wiliest traders in desert history. Omid has done more than most of his generation to redouble that reputation, responsible for one of the most impressive trade empires on the subcontinent. Shrewd and cavalier, Omid is not well-liked by any clan, even his own, although many aspire to join his enterprise, mirror it, or depose him from it.
Despite wide speculation that he was, in fact, a soulless bastard, when the Inferno happened, Omid leveraged his expansive assets to personally fund dozens of independent orbital space programs. He also worked on establishing a global communications network after the first cities started following and infrastructure failed. By the time he personally arrived on Station Prime Omid was responsible for having saved several hundred thousand lives through his various efforts. His nearly limitless finances had been reduced to one man's comfortable savings.
When the Treatise Body Administration was formed and delegates were being selected, Edmun Zahir risked great controversy personally requesting that Omid join as a delegate, given how quietly the businessman had contributed to the rescue efforts. Omid gladly accepted.
Shrewd and cavalier, Omid is a businessman through and through. He's frequently jovial and always cocky, often joking or needling others goodnaturedly (or so he claims). He does his best to appear uninvested in anything but personal gains, but he has a deep love for humanity as a whole and would do whatever it takes to keep them from being snuffed out. Simply put, he loves humanity - it's people he doesn't respect.

Description Omid Durrani stands 5-foot-7 with a deceptively hefty build often masked by stylish clothing custom-tailored to mask it. His appearance is carefully maintained even when it appears otherwise, and he is rarely ever not smiling.
