Juma have been a criminal since he was a little boy. He loves easy life which for him is getting what he wants without payment. He went through criminal homes as a child, his parents were addicts so he didn't get a normal home. Juma is a smart criminal. He was raised by an "old school" criminal who teached him about respect and other "codes of the old world". He was like a father figure to him, but when the outbreak came the Z's got his "sensei". Juma's been living a nomad life before and after the outbreak. He lies, he's tricky. He's sly, he can manipulate well. No family, no wife, no kids. Just Juma. When the outbreak came, Juma and few of his friends were on a boat. They travelled around on that boat for a long time, scavenging fuel and stuff from the harbor. But one night they had too much vodka and the boat drove on a huge rock, which made the ship sink. Juma drifted on Chernarus and seeking his fortune and a boat to go on with.
