Born in Takmyr the capital of Takistan he was raised by his mother as his father was a Takistani rebel and had been killed. As he grew up witnessing the atrocities being committed around him in his local area he eventually became insensitive to death and murder, it was like this until his mother had succumbed to disease and died when he was 15. He came to the conclusion that it he was on his own as was everyone else. Nobody helped each other. Shabaz had to make ends meet one way or another.
He himself ended up joining the Rebels. He took it only as an opportunity to learn how to fight and get experience with combat. After a few years he left the Rebels with no regret, he didn't care for them, he used them. He joined a mercenary company and went around Takistan taking contracts with his company. They eventually broadened their horizon and took a contract in Chernarus. During this contract is when the crisis hit and he was stranded in this country. He made his way to South Zagoria with a few others and has been surviving there. He has gotten lots of abuse from the local Chernarussians just for being Takistani. He does not care for this as he is just in it for himself and making profit.
