Although steel-tipped arrows ricochet harmlessly off dragonhide, Mukhtar's enormous sword cuts through it cleanly like a knife through butter. Before his game has even stopped breathing, he lops off its head in one stroke. He revels in another successful hunt by hoisting his trophy above his head and letting the blood trickle down into his mouth and quench his thirst.
Mukhtar (also spelled Muktar, pron.: /ˈmʊktɑːr/) meaning "chosen" in Arabic المختار, refers to the head of a village or mahalle (neighbourhood) in many Arab countries as well as in Turkey and Cyprus.
