Camel Merchant (Assistant)
A slack-jawed, thoroughly irritated-looking young man, leading a mangy camel on a frayed rope.
Kassim is a camel merchant (assistant) working the trade routes between Cairo and Alexandria. He is the younger brother of Ali, who takes advantage of him continually. Ali frequently finds excuses to make Kassim do all the hard work. As a consequence, Kassim is heartily sick of camel trading.
