Ali was born into a normal migrant family living in Phoenix. He went to school and grew up as any other kid would.
Later on in his late teens, he began conversing with a recruiter for a terrorist organization, and was eventually radicalized.
Soon, he found himself in his home country of Saudi Arabia, fighting against his birth country and other nationalists.
He followed the group through Takistan and into Chernarus, getting stuck as the infection hit. Him and his group fought against a group of nationalist Chernorussians and came out unscathed, by the will of Allah.
Now he follows around the remaining leaders of his old organization, helping them to spread the word of Islam.
