Nasr and Bassam; the latter habitually disguised as the former's beard.

Bassam is an alien merchant of unidentified species who lives secretly on Earth, operating in Marrakesh along with his associate Nasr. It's not known whether Nasr is an alien as well, but Bassam - being much a much smaller creature with long hair growing on his back - habitually clings to Nasr's face to disguise himself as a beard and hide his presence from unsuspecting humans. His clients include the famous alien arms dealer Riza Stavros.

  • Nasr and Bassam were both performed by Kayvan Novak, who also play the Jababian royal Vungus.
  • Members of Bassam's species seemingly can spend hours hidden inside a water bottle with no ill effect, leading to the possibility that they may not require breathing.
