Sashi tried to find an Island Paint Brush at the Mystery Island trading post when his sister lost one. He couldn't find one, and sat down on the side of the street. There, Jhuidah (disguised as an old woman) told him a secret recipe for an Island Paint Brush at the cooking pot.
Sashi's story started the rumour that Island Paint Brushes could be made in the Cooking Pot. The Neopets team later confirmed that it wasn't possible.
It is possible, from the images that accompany Sashi's story, that his sister is an Uni. He appeared in issue #5.
