Skills & abilities: Qamar possesses the normal human strength of a man of his age, height, and build, who engages in moderate regular exercise.

Equipment: The Arabian Knight wielded a magic carpet that responded solely to his mental commands. The carpet could bend and roll up into a cylinder for holding objects or use as a battling ram, and be used for striking like a whip, levitate off the ground and propel itself through the air at any speed that the Knight commanded. Having no protection or oxygen, the flight was limited to approximately 90 miles per hour and only in breathable atmosphere, but this was not the limit for the carpet. The carpet was virtually impervious to harm.

The Arabian Knight also wielded a golden scimitar, capable of emitting beams of concussive magical force, mentally controlled by the wielder. The limitations to the concussive force and whether the sword needs recharging is unknown. The sword possesses an enchantment that causes it to discharge magical energy against anyone other than the Knight who touches it. The Knight could also use the scimitar for slashing and stabbing like an ordinary scimitar, though the blade with its enhancements was vastly more durable than an ordinary scimitar, allowing it to cut through steel, stone and other hard materials.

Around the waist, the Arabian Knight carried a belt-sash that could be animated by mental command, to serve as bonds, lariat, whip or climbing rope. It was made of the same substance as the flying carpet and was similarly indestructible. It could magically extend in length from 4 to almost 40 feet.
