Tall, thin, dark complexioned and always dressed in exotic red flowing robes, Hamid is a very mysterious figure that seems to know more than the other characters.
One suspects he has a deeper connection to the entire history of the Stones of Power. In later books, he seems to know things already that Adam has just found out.
He is almost a shadowy character and Adam believes there is more to him than meets the eye...
"The First Stone of Power is discovered; it’s only a matter of time before the others are revealed. They will be drawn inexorably to the first of the seven stones … to the sacred scarab."
