Basim al Saud is a werewolf in "The Southern Vampire Mysteries". He moves to Shreveport, Louisiana from the Houston, Texas pack after accidentally killing a human friend of the pack who attacked him with a garden hoe.
Trying to earn the money to pay the blood debt he owes for the killing, he is pulled into fairy Colman's plan to implicate Sookie Stackhouse in a crime so that she will be sent to jail. Basim decides he will not murder again and will instead find a body to fulfill the bargain, but he is murdered by Ham and Patricia. In a twist of irony, it is his body that is buried on Sookie’s land. Fortunately, it is found and moved before local law enforcement arrives for a search based on an "anonymous tip".
