The character Aibynn is based on a friend of Steven Brust named Robin Anders.

Not surprisingly, Robin is an avid drummer, and drum instructor. (He even appears in a series of instructional videos about the doumbek. Check your local music store.)

An example of Robin's influence on Steve can be seen here
