Avi Taures was the 2nd President of Zamastan, succeeding President Tomias Hapson after his assassination. He was a statesman, abolitionist, and one of the Founding Fathers of Zamastan alongside Hapson, Henry Tiller, and Thomas Pétion. He was also one of the main leaders of the Zamastan War of Independence in 1802-1804, noted for convincing Tomias Hapson to join his uprising against the Empire of Skith. He participated directly in several battles during the northern theater of the conflict, including the Battle of Bonmuth, in which he killed Charles Tiller in a duel. This event caused a major divide in the relationship between Taures and Henry Tiller, Charles Tiller's older brother.
Before the presidency, he was also the commissioner of the Constitution of Zamastan, which laid the basic foundations of the government of Zamastan. As President, Taures put revitalizing the military, creating more effective infrastructure, and economic growth as his top programs. In his later years, Taures developed a rare strain of influenza, which dramatically decreased his health. He passed away in 1868, passing the mantle of president to William Castovia.
