Before being Embraced, Ahmed was not particularly religious or pious, being a moderate successful merchant in Tripoli. His sire chose him for their similar religious views and trained him in the arts of his Clan. As a final test, Ahmed should infiltrate a crusader camp, steal a certain object, and assassinate the guards. Whatever he found changed him completely, turning the man into a devout Christian. He has since worked tirelessly to strengthen the grip of the Assamites over the Holy Land.
