Durriyah casts imbue with spell ability on Rashid, gifting him with a one-shot use each of a caster level 7 resist energy (fire) spell (fire resistance 20 for 70 minutes when cast), sanctuary spell (DC 18 Will save, 7 rounds when cast), and shield of faith spell (+3 deflection bonus to AC, 7 minute duration when cast).
Although quite tall for a dwarf at 4’11”, Rashid is extremely thin, bordering on emaciated. He usually hides this by dressing simply in a voluminous white desert robe, and distracts attention from his face with an enormous white turban, itself almost a foot and a half in height. If anyone looks closely, they see a pock-marked face, and tired rheumy eyes. However, whenever he speaks of the Dawnflower, his voice radiates enthusiasm, and his eyes take on an almost fanatical gleam of joy.
Rashid is a middle-aged dwarf who has seen better days. Once a fairly prosperous merchant, he was driven to bankruptcy by one of his rivals in Katapesh. At the brink of despair, he found solace in the one thing that could provide him with a definite rush – pesh. For decades, he survived on the streets as a pesh addict, begging, stealing and doing enough odd jobs to keep him in pesh, usually pesh whey, but occasionally a batch of raw pesh, ever chasing the next bout of euphoria.
However, one day when he was out begging, a cleric of the Dawnflower came across him, and took pity on him. She took him back to the temple, and nursed him through the rough detox phase, and helped him to find his feet again.
More importantly, she made sure that he was taught about the doctrine of Sarenrae; teaching him about temperance, patience, and redemption. Rashid saw this as a second chance at life after many dark years, and he became a fervent follower of the Healing Flame, eventually taking holy orders, and becoming a cleric.
Although he does not deny his past, he no longer believes that it defines him; how he should be judged should be based on his actions in the present. To that end, he does what he can to make sure that others, where possible, are given a second chance.
Although his body has been ravaged by his life on the streets and his past addiction, he does not let that stop him from spreading the word of the Everlight, traveling across Katapesh along the merchant trails.

1st: Iron Will
3rd: Power Attack
5th: Furious Focus
Pesh Addict (Katapesh): You spent several of your teenaged years addicted to pesh, a habit that you may or may not have kicked. Certainly, the habit consumed much of your savings. You start with only half of the normal starting cash as a result, but your knowledge of the pesh addict lifestyle grants you a +1 trait bonus on Bluff, Knowledge (local), and Sense Motive checks. One of these skills (Knowledge[Local]) is always a class skill for you.
Birthmark: You were born with a strange birthmark that looks very similar to the holy symbol of the god you chose to worship later in life. This birthmark can serve you as a divine focus for casting spells, and, as a physical manifestation of your faith, increases your devotion to your god—you gain a +2 trait bonus on all saving throws against charm and compulsion effects as a result.
(N.B. For story purposes, I would prefer to cast this as a tattoo that Rashid received upon taking orders, and joining the temple as a Holy Father.)
