Mahmoud Atef

Alias
: Iblis
Gender: Male
Age: 37
Nemesis: Punisher
Prison: The Golden Boughs Retirement Village
Leverage: Turned himself in to the US government when he discovered a job he'd been hired to do was part of an elaborate assassination attempt on the President. Offered evidence leading to the plot being foiled and the rest of the team being rolled up. Snatched up by Waller for new TFX team, in return for a new identity promised to keep him hidden from The Network, the League, the Punisher, and his old crew (one or two of which have probably managed to escape custody).

History
Born and raised in Israel / Palestine. Recruited into PLF (Palestine Liberation Front) at 16. Involved in some sort of magic ritual, along with 4 others, to infuse them all with shadow magic, of which was the sole survivor. Used by the PLF and affiliated terrorist organizations (collectively The Network) as a spy and assassin for ~10 years, gradually became disillusioned with the struggle. "Audtioned" for membership in the Society of Shadows, but didn't mesh well with their organization and its philosophy. Manipulated The Network into granting control over a long-term undercover operation spanning several nations, primarily the US, and used as a cover to slip out from their control and go solo. Operated mostly along the east coast (New York, Boston, Miami were 3 favorite cities to work in). Bumped into Punisher multiple times, but always managed to slip the noose.
