Waj was born in Pakistan but his parents moved to London, England when he was at an early age. Upon growing up in England it was apparent that Waj had some form of learning disability due to him being completely incompetent and incapable of of making rational independent decisions and thus ended up unable to gain any decent qualifications at school and ended up at a dead end kebab shop job in East London. Through this Waj would meet his usual friend group that he would consistently hang around with. This group would plot ideas to terrorise the British state as a form of justice for the Government actions in the Middle East, the group would devise several plans for attacks however they were offered a chance to be trained at a Pakistani terrorist camp by the uncle of one of the group members. Waj volunteered for the chance to be trained in order to prove that he wasn't just a joke to the other members of his group and thus him and his friend Omar set off for Pakistan. The flight to Pakistan however would be cut short due to seemingly unexplained reasons and as such the plane would crash somewhere near the Chernarus area leaving Waj injured and alone having to then fend for himself in the wilderness.
