Aamir Yaqubzai

Basic Info:

Player: RedRosasGhost
Name: Aamir Yaqubzai

XP Unspent/Total: 0/0

Brief Description: A wiry Afghan boy with dark eyes and black hair covered by a kufi cap, often wearing a hoodie and fatigues. Aamir is cheerful and gregarious, with a marked interest in new people, but anyone spending time with him finds that he definitely has something to prove. Talks in a jocular and confident tone of voice, a noticeable Baltimore accent coloring his speech.

Theme Music: Blazing Teens (Arabic Dub) - Fatima ibn Rashed

Appearance: An average-sized fourteen-year old with finely-chiseled Pashtun features, dark brown eyes and curly black hair cut short on the sides and back. He wears a nondescript grey hoodie, olive fatigues, and mandarin-collared shirts regularly, with the embroidered kufi hat and the misbaha beads wrapped around his wrist being his concessions to traditional Islamic garb.

Personality: Affable and always excited to meet new friends (or friendly rivals), Aamir is a kid who's more than a little awed by all the incredible powers he sees other students slinging around. Despite his outwardly competitive nature, he struggles with something akin to an inferiority complex. Somewhere inside, he doesn't believe that he should even be at Fifth Sanctum with "actually powered" kids. Thankfully, he's also a big adherent of the "fake it till ya make it" school of thought on Getting Good, so the most that he usually displays of this insecurity is a self-deprecating sense of humor and a drive to push himself really REALLY hard. He's an observant Sufi Muslim, with a deep love of the mystic poetry and meditative dance of the tradition, but keeps his practice to himself unless asked about it.

Hobbies, Likes and Dislikes:
Likes: Training, Sufi poetry and dance, Warrior Cats books, cheesy Bollywood action films, the Baltimore Orioles, people who don't take themselves too seriously.
Dislikes: Most schoolwork, actual literature that isn't an old Farsi text, artsy movies, super serious people
