History

[The team’s History can be found in The Losers entry]

Aisha was the daughter of Afghan warlord and slave-trader Khalfan Fadhil, although it’s unknown how close they were. She grew up surrounded by war, soon becoming a soldier against the Russian incursions into her land.

Aisha charging with pistol and knife

Following their expulsion she became radicalized, joining an Islamic extremist organisation and working closely with fellow jihadi Fahd against American interests in the Middle East. She also made contact with the CIA, pretending to work for them as an informant.

Learning her father had been killed by American soldiers, she investigated. She learned they’d been manipulated into it by a person known only as Max. During her investigation she met Colonel Franklin Clay – leader of the Losers – the squad that had performed the mission and who were believed dead. She didn’t tell him her relationship to Fadhil, but they agreed to work together to hunt down Max and she joined the Losers when Clay reformed them.

When Fahd was captured by American forces in Turkmenistan Aisha returned there, and made contact with her CIA handler. She tricked him into helping her rescue Fahd and destroy the valuable oil pipeline.

Following their recovery of a nuke in Russia, Aisha lets Fahd know where Stegler secures it so they can use it for their own purposes.

When Clay’s shot at Max fails, he’s caught by an incendiary grenade thrown by Aisha, who no longer needs the Losers. Covered in flames, he still manages to charge Max, sending them both plummeting over the edge of the platform. The remaining Losers then learn that Max is actually a pair of identical twins, the second of whom appears, shooting at Aisha.

Aisha cocking her pistol

She escapes out a window, surviving, and getting to the ground. Cougar and Jensen miss their shot at Max, and retreat to the secret pipeline. They’re surprised at the pipe entrance by Fahd, who manages to seriously wound Cougar before they kill him. They deactivate the bomb, but, when Cougar realises he won’t make it through the pipe, he decides to stay with the nuke, buying Jensen time to escape before setting off the bomb.

Jensen makes his way through the pipe, emerging into an empty ocean, the ship that the Sheik promised would collect them nowhere to be seen, while Aisha charges a hundred mercenaries to try to reach the docks before the bomb is exploded.


Personality

Aisha is an intense and aggressive person. She is fuelled by hate and rage, and while she can keep it under control, she often needs to give vent to her violent impulses, selecting a random stranger and attacking them if necessary. Usually she maintains a calm, if intense façade, rarely talking casually, but in a fight she is brutal and wild.


Quotes

“I was born in a desert place. War was my only mother. As a child, I moved through the battlefield and slit the throats of screaming Russian boys. I firebombed my first tank when I was twelve years old and machine-gunned the crew as they fled, burning. And yet perhaps you expect me to be afraid of you. Tell me, what do you think ?”

Jensen: “So, uh, you got any hobbies ?”

Aisha: “I once collected human ears. I had gathered three dozen pairs when a feral dog came into our camp one night and took them. But the dog was good eating.”

“You kicked me out of a plane, Roque. I will tear your beating heart from your rib cage with my bare hands. I can do it, you know.”

Jensen: “So that’s it ? You shoot us an’ it’s all over ?”
Aisha: “For you. For my people, the war goes on. Until we are free of your air bases and your oil men and your phoney elections. Death to America.”

Merc Sergeant [over walkie-talkie]: “Yankee one five, what is your situation ? Come in yankee one five”
Aisha: “They died like cattle.”
Merc Sergeant: “Are you out of your mind ? This is a fight you can’t win, lady— ! There’s a hundred men between you and the coastline—! Even if you make it to a powerboat, the rig’s phalanx cannons will blast you to spaghetti sauce before you get half a mile ! Do you understand me ? There is no way off this island— !”
Aisha: “One hundred men ?”
Merc Sergeant: “That’s right !”
Aisha: “Send them.” [shoots one of them] “Ninety-nine.”
