Zahid was born in Damascus. He lived his life in fear of infidels murdering him and his family. At the age of 6 his father was shot and killed by a US marine, who never received justice. This fueled his anger for the rest of his life. He joined with like minded people, and started to retaliate at a young age. He planted IEDs, shot RPGs, and simply shot marines. After blowing up a convoy he fled north to South Zagoria for protection. The zombies provided a nice cover, so he could hide easier and hunt down infidels.
