"Words won't stop our enemies, once they're armed with Alamutian blades."

Nizam is the king's brother, and an evil nobleman who seeks to take control of the Sands of Time. He is portrayed by Sir Ben Kingsley in Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.

When he was young, he saved the life of his brother who later become the king. Nizam wants to use the Sands of Time to come back to the day he saved his brother, to make sure that he will not save his brother to become the king.


Nizam together with his older brother Sharaman grew up in luxury and wealth as expected in a Persian prince. Nizam saw the greatness and power of his father as the king of Persia and so he hoped to become one someday. One day, when he and Sharaman were hunting, they saw a beautiful buck and stalked it, they didn't knew that they were also being stalked by a lion.

The lion attacked Sharaman, but was saved by Nizam when he pierced the lion with their spear, since that day Sharaman was very grateful to him. Years later, Sharaman became king of Persia leaving. Since that day, Nizam realized that if only he didn't save Sharaman, then he would be the king, his dreams rule Persia his way could come true.

According to Prince Dastan, Sharaman ordered a ban on the secret Persian killing agency known as "The Hassansins", Nizam deliberately disobeyed that order when he spoke with their leader Zolm, it was then that Nizam learned that he was a former guardian of a secret religion: those who believe in the fabled Sands of Time. Nizam also discovered that there is a dagger being guarded in the city of Alamut. He believed that if he could get that, he could turn back time and change his past, not save Sharaman, and so he secretly hid the Hassansins, protecting and hiding them away not just from the public but also from Sharaman.

Planning a schemeEdit

Years later, Sharaman had two sons, Tus and Garsiv. Nizam figured out that he could use the two princes for his plan and so he did when one day, the king adopted a street urchin, Dastan, realizing that he could also use a rogue child such as him, Nizam also used Dastan for his plan to retrieve the Dagger of Time and the Sandglass so that he can fulfill his dreams and become king.

A dream come true?Edit

Finally capturing Alamut, he then lies about the city having weapon forges (though Alamut has none) they then search the city for any proof while Tus, is the one who faced the anger of Sharaman. He then put a skin-melding poison into a robe and gave it to Tus as a gift for the honoring of the king, but Tus, promising the king that he would find proof of the forgers gave the robe to his younger brother, Prince Dastan.

So now Dastan would be the one to give the poisoned robe to the king instead of Tus. Dastan being accused for the murder was forced to flee with Tamina, the princess of Alamut. Nizam knowing that his brother is dead then set out to kill the three princes but soon he realizes that Dastan is in possession of the dagger, this made it hard for him since he knows how hard it is to capture Dastan, and so he advised Tus to stop a public trial and instead kill Dastan immediately once he is captured but Tus refuses since he knows that Dastan at least deserves a fair trial.

Nizam not wanting his plans foiled because of a street urchin, sent forth the Hassansins once more and told them to kill Dastan and Tamina, but because of help from Sheik Amar, Seso and his men, they became victorious over the Hassansins, however, Garsiv died.

Nizam's failed planEdit

After Dastan confronts Tus and tells about Nizam's plan, Tus tries to fight his treacherous uncle. Nizam quickly kills Tus leaving only Dastan left. He regains control of the dagger and uses it to stab the hourglass but just when time was turning back and the sandstorm had begun destroying everything, he was stopped by Dastan and so time only turned back to the point of Alamut's invasion.

Dastan, the only one remembering everything, stops Nizam. Nizam, amazed, played jokes to whirl the minds of those who were listening but he finally gets angry enough to try and kill his adopted nephew one last time and fights Dastan, but then he is killed by Tus, leaving him and his failed plans dead. Dastan then marries Tamina and everything was back to normal in the land of Persia.



"My death would weaken your young reign. "
" Oh God, help us! The robe, it's poisoned! "
"Enjoy the gutter, Dastan. It's where you'll stay under my reign. "
"What a glorious mess we are."
"He's here... Seal every gate. Find him! "
