Sharīf (Arabic: شريف‎) is a traditional Arab tribal title given to those who serve as the protector of the tribe and all tribal assets, such as property, wells, and land. The feminine form is sharifa(h).

The word has an etymological connection with the English term sheriff due to the nature of Sharif's to be enforcers, authoritative and their generally dictator like demeanour.

In Arabic/Persian however, the word Sharif means "honorable".
We need a Sharif to help run this place, too much chaos and disorder.

I shot the sherif, but I didn't shoot the deputy... oh no no.

Sharif, like, as in OH-mar Sharif? YES!
