"No, father, don't leave me! ...You killed my father, I hate you, I hate you, I hate you!"
—Salim to Jodie

Salim's father is an unnamed character in Beyond: Two Souls. He is the husband of an unnamed woman and the father of Salim.

Character Information[]

At some point in his life, he married his future wife. She later gave birth to their first and only son, Salim.

Salim's father acted as, presumably, protection for Charrief and his cabinet alongside other commandos.

Salim's father appears in "The Mission," in which he is possessed by Aiden in order to assassinate Charrief. By order of the CIA, Jodie Holmes infiltrates Charrief's compound in Somalia with the help of Aiden. Aiden takes control of Salim's father, picks up a weapon, and slaughters everyone. Guards outside, hearing the noise, fire upon him. While Aiden kills them as well, one guerrilla manages to get in enough hits to mortally wound Salim's father.

Forcibly removed from his body, Aiden will then allow Jodie access. She examines the body of Salim's father before taking photos of Charrief's corpse. Behind her, Salim enters and cries over his father. Aiden shields Jodie from the bullets Salim fires, and she departs. Salim is later seen chanting with the rest of the city as Jodie leaves via helicopter transport.


  • It's possible he trained and groomed his son to follow in his footsteps.
  • Evidence supports the theory Salim's father was a widower.
    • Salim never mentions his mother.
    • No wedding band is visible on his father.
    • Alternatively, Salim's mother may have been alive and relatively safe during Jodie's mission, having been evacuated to or hidden in a safe place. Salim didn't mention her because he was using all of his mental energy to avoid breaking down while he's been shot at; only after seeing his father dead did Salim mention him.
