Conrad Amiri is an open book to others and himself. Born in Johannesburg, South Africa to Dr. Halsey Amiri and Ade Amiri. The oldest of 3 children. He was raised in an intellectual fashion as his father was a Doctor and his mother an Archaeologist. Conrad's parents gave him the best in the world with both education and a family environment. They've left a lasting impression on Conrad and as such he will do anything to honor their memory, hoping, at least once that' they'll be able to meet again in this world or the next. However, a split would occur between his parents and himself when at the age of 17, Conrad announced loudly at the family dinner that he would follow in his Dutch grandfathers footsteps and join the South African Army Engineer Corp with a chance of hoping to join the Army Engineer Formation. Harsh words were said and plates where thrown as the flames of Conrad's dream blazed in the fire adolescence
After finishing his secondary education he successfully joined the South African Military training with them rigorously as if his life depended on it. In a sense it did considering he'd been disowned by his family for his rash actions. "No worries" He thought, "My brothers will make them proud." Day and night he thought this as he moved ever toward his goal of reaching the Formation, the command group of all Engineer corps. At the age of 27, he'd already finished his Engineering degree at the South African Military Academy, but that was when the accident happened. Now this is where Conrad stops telling his stories, maybe because of shame, or maybe because of an scared memory that lingers in his mind of his wasted potential. All we know is that he was honorably discharged from the South African Military and started drinking heavily for 2 years. It wasn't until he found a new opportunity in the shadows as a Engineer in the shadows of a cooperation. A renewed purpose filled him yet again and he stopped touching the bottle.
When the outbreak started he was 31 and still working for this mysterious cooperation as an Oversight Engineer working on all sorts of projects. And there he would remain until he was dispatched into Chernarus as an operative to assist the friendlies in the area.
His moniker "Captain Ahab" comes from his love of classical literature. From his fellow solders he can be known to help those in need with his strong sense of personal ethics and laws. Also known to talk in great amounts about pop culture as well.
