Awiimba Jaajuu was born in Mogadishu, Somalia to a poor mother who was the victim of rape. This was a very common thing in Somalia because of the state the country was left in. Awiimba around the age of 5 was forced to work for Pirates, preparing the ships before they went off on their raiding parties. The target of these pirates were freighters carrying cargo in the Indian Ocean, so a quick profit could be made by either holding the crew for ransom or selling the supplies on the black market. Before Awiimba knew it he was part of one of the raiding parties around the age of 15 tasked with driving the small boats towards the freighters as quiet and quickly as possible, which allowed for the crew to be taken by surprise. As time passed the crews on the ships began hiring mercenaries to protect them from the pirates, which was a huge problem. Awiimba and his party were vastly outgunned when it came to bigger ships owned by American companies. Awiimba had awoken one morning with a sick feeling in his stomach, knowing that a raid was to take part that night. After getting the plan together and planning their assault they gathered their dinky guns and boarded their small vessels. Upon their approach to the ship shots rang out from the boat, Awiimba quickly pulled the boat to the right away from the boat but the engine was shot. They were left to drift in the ocean until they found land, thinking that was it. Awiimba drifted for 6 days with only small pieces of jerky to survive off of, ending his journey in a land so far away from home. Chernarus.
