Intellectual Characteristics

Mainly Logical and Musical Intelligence; Hands On Learner, Musical Recaller   He likes to learn about a lot of things, particularly that of the natural world. His favorite subjects are electricity and animals. After his studies, he went on to become a science writer who worked on popular science magazines. Later he wrote two books on the fauna he had seen throughout a world tour he had been on. Now he is writing about the biology and cultural aspects of the intelligent races of Kaf, including his own. He is also very fond of sharing things that he seen outside of the Zomia Tropics as well as explaining the everyday natural science applications that he feels go unnoticed by most Bodhi Villagers.

Personality Characteristics


One of the driving forces of Suleiman is seeking to understand whatever peaks his interest, and his strong lust for knowledge and appreciation of beauty as natural 'outlook' traits rather than learned behavior (that is he is driven by a deep internal sense of personal wonderment). He also has a strong sense of right and wrong, becoming deeply upset if things are 'wrong' according to his own sense of rightness. This often leads to him becoming argumentative, though in a calm (or distressed, if met with aggression) analytical way based on reasoning rather than aggression and intimidation, seeking to convince people rather than merely having them submit. He is also very tenacious and can't merely let things go, because he usually is so deeply moved and concerned by things; the things he can argue about mean a lot to him, generally speaking.

Family Ties

Fatima Mustafa: His older Si'lat Djinn sister from his mother's previous marriage with a si'lat djinn and the eldest of her siblings. Suleiman would often look to her to learn innate jinn abilities that their mother might have forgotten or didn't want him to abuse around the homin children. She left the village to become a popular singer referring to progressive and social issues but often visits during tours.   Ismail Mustafa: Suleiman's younger brother who was his major playmate during their youth in the village. Unlike, Suleiman, he was born ethereal and had to learn how to take on his physical form. The grew up with a friendly rivalry on friends and girls, eventually Ismail decided to use his talents to open up the first formal clinic in the village.   Farah Mustafa: She was born just before Suleiman left his village to attend higher education in Jinnistan. Now a child, he rekindles their relationship by teaching her things about his travels at home.
