Rashad sports a short, light-colored haircut; with it trimmed close to the scalp in the back. He wears the standard Scout Regiment uniform.
While Rashad is shown to be a brave and conditioned soldier, he also showed himself to be a rather considerate man, watching over Ymir's damaged body with Nifa. He is also shown to prioritize his fellow soldiers' well-being over immediate threats to himself, retrieving water to soothe burned soldiers while engaged with the Colossal Titan.
When the Scout Regiment regroups atop Wall Rose, Rashad examines Ymir's comatose body with Nifa. Shortly after, Bertholdt Hoover and Reiner Braun betray the Scouts in an attempt to kidnap Eren Jaeger and Ymir, Rashad asks for water to sooth a soldier who is burned by steam from the Colossal Titan. Hange then leaves Rashad in command of Teams three and four and orders them to stay on standby behind Bertholdt's Colossal Titan form, while Hange helps Eren with the attack on the Armored Titan.
- Rashad is an Arabic name meaning "righteous" or "blameless."
