AJ was born in 1989, into the Abad family. His father, Mohammed and his mother Khadija were immigrants from Iran and came to live in the UK. Searching for a better life. Mohammed found himself running a business, a small corner store within the outskirts of east London. Aj's mother worked as a nurse within the NHS. Safe to say, he was born into a fairly normal, working class family that would be able to provide for him in his early life.
During his child years, AJ would do well at school like his parents asked for and was also religious, following the muslim faith by the book. He took well to the more creative side of education, preferring to study music than excel in maths or english. His parents did not really support this as they wanted him to become a doctor in his later life. Aj took this as resentment from his parents and it would come to haunt him in his later life.
During his teenage years, Aj became more aggressive and began to fall out with his parents frequently, he would get into frequent fights within secondary school as his anger would get the better of him, this would transcend into his grades falling. Upon leaving school, AJ found himself with no grades that could successfully get him into any sort of substantial job, he turned to drugs and crime in order to feed himself and also indulge.
Aj became involved in gang crime throughout london, and was eventually on the eyes of the police. He was hunted but Aj had a way of hiding. He wanted to flee the uk to get away from his life of crime and found out about a eastern bloc country known as Chernarus from a mutual friend. He took the money that he had and fled to Chernarus. Aj never stayed in contact with his family as they didnt want anything to do with him due to his problems. His resentment of his family has become a constant anger. He remained alone until the outbreak hit where he teamed with a group of people to help him survive.
