Hi everyone! I noticed that a lot of people had posted about who some of the characters were and there was some confusion with Fahad and his multiple wives so I created this quick character sketch of the main people. I'll edit with more things soon but here's just a quick go to in case anyone is confused. Hope it helps Big smile

P.S. If you know something about the character I don't or know who's the actor playing a certain someone please feel free to PM and I'll edit it as soon as I can.
