Shawish are mid-ranking officers in the Azure Band. They’re entrusted with the secrets of its smuggling operations and genie magics with which they oversee various operations and intervene personally when things go wrong.

Shawish deal with most issues through deception, leveraging their personal charisma, criminal resources, and illusion magics to solve problems and divert investigations. When violence erupts, they command from the back, enchanting the weapons of their underlings and battering enemies into submission with powerful magic.
