Khan is a major antagonist, as well as a supporting protagonist villain of Broken Sword 1: The Shadow of the Templars.


Khan was a middle aged Syrian man who was staying the Hotel Ubu. He had black hair and a scar going down his face shaped as a crescent.


Khan views the Neo-Templars as enemies of Allah and humanity, unworthy of the title of the original Knights Templar. Khan begins to kill members of the Neo-Templars in order to prevent them from piecing together the location of the Sword of Baphomet. At one point in the game, when George visits Syria and makes it to Bull's Head Hill, Khan appears, holding George at gunpoint, ready to kill him, although George makes a heroic escape.

In the end Khan is disguised as an elderly woman who takes the same section in the train as George and Nico, but he realized that George and Nico are attempting to defeat the Neo-Templars so he doesn't attempt to attack them; eventually, he is shot by Eklund in a fight at the back of the train, but his C4 is used by Nico to destroy the sword. Before his death, Khan tells George all that he knows about the Neo-Templar's secret plans and wishes him the best in his struggle against them.
