Family: Ali Ibn Fatiti bin Kashwa Qasim - Ancestor Jamal Hameed al-Qasim - Father Hasana al-Qasim - Mother Abdul al-Qasim - Older Brother Saamir al-Qasim - Older Brother Rashaad al-Qasim - Younger Brother Backstory: Asfa was born on the 16th of April to a wealthy family that was headed by Jamal Hameed al-Qasim. The family, which originally was from Iraq, was operated as a major corporation that spanned throughout the Middle East. However, following the outbreak of the Kuwait War, Jamal saw himself leave his home country due to the shift of the dynamics of Saddam Hussein, and persecution of the Shi’a populations at whole. He would move to Bahrain where the ruins of his corporation would happen as much of his revenue was blown up into fires during said operation. He would marry a Baharna Woman by the name of Hasana, and would go on to have four children, Abdul, Saamir Asfa and Rashaad. Although life was perfect for him having boys, that one girl just had to pop out of her womb, Asfa. Asfa would grow up being pretty much neglected by her father, with her younger brother receiving even more attention than she did. While her brothers were all being egotistical about inheriting their father's legacy, Asfa was a notable exception, and did not pursue the same dreams as them, rather, rather focusing on studying and becoming smarter, especially pursuing her academics and remained isolated from her family’s shenanigans as much as she could. She, like the rest of her family, was home-schooled and didn’t really had a chance to see the outside world all too much. Despite her best efforts, Jamal saw Asfa as a failure, and someone who just got in his way. Although she was arranged to be married off to one of the sons of his best friend’s sons, Asfa would not accept being treated like this, and would get into a fight with her father. Her older brother, Saamir, who neared the age of eighteen, begun to grow closer with Asfa, and understood her pain. Even going as far to apologizing to her for all the mistreatment that Abdul caused for her. He would offer to take her with him to move to Karakura, and she would accept this offer. At the age of 10, Asfa would move with him there, and would live there since, but not really interact with anyone. Asfa wouldn’t have that vast wealth that the rest of her family had, but she did have enough to start out with thanks to her brother’s assistance to at least get her some new clothes and a new fresh life. Other Notes: Other than her and her brother, the rest of her family aren't active nor interested in Karakura. So don't worry about it.
