|~ The Butcher|
Jamal Rahar, or better known by his moniker The Butcher, is a major antagonist in the 2019 video game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. He is the second-in-command of Al-Qatala as well as the fanatically loyal right-hand and enforcer of The Wolf.
Little is known about Jamal Rahar's life before he became the infamous "Butcher". It is known that he was born in Urzikstan and at some point married a woman named Ousa and the two had a son named Amon. After General Barkov's invasion into Urzikstan, Rahar adopted his name "The Butcher" and joined Al-Qatala to remove foreign countries of their government and military power due to believing in the Wolf's cause. However, he promised Ousa that he would make sure she and Amon would be kept away from the consequences of his terrorist actions. Their actions have put them at odds with CIA as well as the Urzikstan Liberation Force led by Commander Farah Karim.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
The Butcher is first seen with the Wolf recording a video to the Al-Qatala cell in the UK just before their attack on Piccadilly Circus in London.
After the Wolf was captured by the ULF, CIA and SAS, the Butcher personally led Al-Qatala into the U.S. Embassy where they were keeping him. During this, Butcher had its members executed in order to force their hands. Regardless, after they moved the Wolf to the Ambassador's residence, the Butcher had his forces keep them occupied while he broke him out. The two then later meet and form an alliance with Hadir at their primary HQ after he revealed his deception to Farah. Both he and the Butcher escaped before a joint operation led Captain Price could get them, but resulted in the Wolf's death.
Later, the Butcher planned to use Barkov's gas on Russia as revenge for Barkov's actions against Urzikstan. He met with contacts in St. Petersburg but was then chased by Price and Sergeant Garrick, who need him alive to get to Hadir. Thanks to help from Nikolai, he was subdued and brought to a warehouse for interrogation. Although he refused to talk, after Price involved his family, he gave up that Hadir was going after Barkov. As they leave, depending on the player's choice, Garrick either executes the Butcher for his crimes or leaves him with his family to be found by Russian authorities along with stolen gas.
