In early 1836, Zahid Al-Rid was born into a rich noble family in a small village in the southern part of the Ottoman Empire where civil tensions between the Turks and the Armenians were getting dangerous and the risk of war was very high with many Armenian leaders speaking for the rebellion,rather than against it.
At a young age Zahid joined the Janissary Regiment as most people of his class did and quickly proved his prowess in combat by defeating all six of his fellow Janissaries and graduated at the top of the regiment. Many believed he had been blessed by the gods, but Zahid believed that like his birth, he had just gotten very lucky.
After Zahid's graduation from the Janissary training regiment, he was was sent on a special mission the Ottoman Commanders believed only someone with his talent could accomplish, hunt and kill the six leaders of the Armenian rebels. Zahid then quickly rushed into a Armenian village across the empire to begin the hunt where he spotted an Armenian scout in the distance.
Zahid quickly struck down the scout as the scout was no match for his skill and asked the scout "Where are your commanders?" when the scout replied with his dying breath "North, in the Marble palace, but it is too late for you, they have most definitely already left
Zahid then rushed for the marble palace in the distance at a speed unheard of by any man. Once Zahid made it into the Palace he discovered what he was looking for, the six Armenian commanders, and engaged them in combat only to find that they together were much stronger than himself and called on the power of the god many have claimed to have blessed him for assistance one more time. Zahid's wish was granted and with the help of God Zahid overpowered the Armenians and succeeded in his seemingly impossible mission.
Upon completing his mission, Zahid began the walk to Istanbul, the capital of the Empire, to report his success to his commanding officer. Upon doing so Zahid was granted medals of honor only legends have ever been awarded. The Officers also proclaimed Zahid as a national hero and savior of the empire for putting down a dangerous rebellion and being a role model for all those in the Empire.
