Not much is known about his early life. Abdul was born in Somalia in 1959 but later moved to Sudan for some unknown reason. He was a staff wielding character and a good swordsman at the time but when he met his wife in 1988, he decided to let those traits go. Between those years, he has uncovered a fragment of what was believed to be the lost spirit sword, Soul Calibur. He brought it with him to show to the village elder.

Eleven years later, he wanted to start a family but the fruits of having a baby wasn't enjoyed. The Second Sudanese Civil War was going on but his village wasn't involved with it A group of agents mostly containing Caucasian males raided his home for that lost artifact and killed his wife after she was spotted. They gave up the search after assuming that it was gone and Abdul then decided to leave the country with his newborn son Mustafa to a place a lot safer, America.


As Abdul escaped with his newborn son, he finally found the place to call home and to establish a group to fight off The Agency.

Abdul had a Brotherhood of his own. The members of his group are Richard Lind, Jenny Collins and Charles. Not much is known about his group , but they were here to protect the people and Soul Calibur and were at war with The Agency and the militia.

The year 2012 was the worst year for the brotherhood. Richard Lind had to step out of the brotherhood in order to care for his family and a few weeks later the militia attacked his farmland.

Abdul was the last one standing and became the adoptive father of Arkus II who was the son of Charles. He then made a promise to train Arkus to become the new leader over his son, Mustafa.

Fighting Style
