Ahmed Yakupov was born on April 4th, 1992 in a small town near the border of Takistan and Chernarus. It was just around the end of the Soviet Union, so things were still kind of a wild wasteland before a little bit before stability was achieved. This made Ahmed's early life very dangerous, his parents never knowing if they could provide the food and care necessary for their child. When things did finally settle down in the area, they were in a bigger city in Takistan, a bit further away from the border the country shared with Chernarus. His upbringing was a combination of his father's Chernarussian heritage, and his mother's Takistani heritage. His parents felt that both heritages and beliefs and traditions were things they felt important for their son to have in his life.
Growing up in a 3rd world country with fresh wounds from military scuffles with the United States made his childhood filled with confusion as to why it was happening to them. As he grew, that confusion turned into understanding and hatred for the ideologies that represented the Western nations that had harmed Takistan. This radicalized him and made him want to use this intense negative energy against those that were enemies to Islam. He ended up joining forces with the group Jaysh Allah, and through Jihad he would arrive in Chernarus in hopes of preaching the word of Allah and enforcing Shariah Law.
