Yasmina Rashid was an Arabian privateer on the Zainab in 1007 TE. She was a friend of Anna Fang. When they met up in Airhaven in Mortal Engines, they greeted each other before discussing MEDUSA together.

When Shrike entered the Gasbag and Gondola to kill Tom Natsworthy and Hester Shaw, Yasmina warned him that she would not let him hurt them. The Stalker then attacked her as well as Anna Fang and the other aviators. Later when Tom asked Hester if she was dead, Hester said that she was likely to have survived, as Shrike did not extend his claws.
