Jabari was born as to a single mother in the Ivory Coast and was abandoned a few days after his birth. He grew up learning read, write, and speak french and English, and had dreams of being a reporter. One day when Jabari Was 14, the Orphanage was attacked by pirates and Jabari along with all his friends were made into child Soldiers. Jabari spent the next few years of his life Robbing ships, and local travel resorts with the band of pirates against his will. Eventually, by the time Jabari was 21, the pirates realized that this would no longer be a profitable venture, and they sold the majority of their soldiers to slave labor contractors in the country of Takistan. Life seemed to look up for Jabari as it was far safer in Takistan, but was still grueling work. Once the unrest started in Chernarus due to rumors of a virus, Takistan became a state of dismay and gave Jabari a blind chance to escape, little did he know, he was headed straight for Chernarus, unbeknownst to the horrors that awaited him.
