This character is close to persian look. I mean he is not persian but if I wrote he is japanesee you'd probably notice that his clothes is not japanese, if I'd say he is european, you might say, : nope because he is yellow.
So just let me quote the commisioner :
"Actually, he is not "Persian" as he is a part of a completely fictional world I built. He's not going to be completey Persian or Indian because his design is a mix of various things."
If you like my art I encourage you to follow me there:

Though, when I designed him, I didn't intend to make a "Persian" person, I just implemented some Persian elements in the design. Therefore, you will find things that "won't fit" in a typical Persian stereotype. Shahinaz (the falcon) was actually something I used from Arabian culture, where falcons are used as hunting assistants.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this!
