Captain Mansour al-Rashid is the commanding officer of the ICS Ardent, an advanced prototype star cruiser of the Imperial Navy.
Al-Rashid has most recently been assigned to investigate the spate of worsening navigation discrepancies plaguing Imperial wormholes throughout the many worlds.
Al-Rashid was tasked with extracting Reximillian Bel-Kenita from the surface of Kementhast Prime, during the civil unrest which is now known to be attributed to the actions of Voice and his allies. The hope was that the doctor might assist with the mission in return for safe passage to his home planet of Damastion. Bel-Kenita's first impression of al-Rashid was "entirely good" (→IDOD).
Imperial records are unclear as to the final fate of Captain al-Rashid, the ICS Ardent, or any registered crew and passengers. The ship remains listed as missing.
