Background

In May 1991, the United States of America assisted Kuwait in establishing the Dagan Unit - a special forces division of the Kuwaiti National Police which would feature Kuwait's superhero representative. In the wake of the Iraqi invasion, Kuwait was convinced that it needed a superhuman presence. With America's financial assistance, as well as Iron Amir's technical ability and prototype designs, the Dagan Unit was launched at the end of 1992 with one functional Dagan Rainmaker Armour.

The Armour was to be worn by an elite police officer who would become a hero for the country, offering security from external threats as well as providing the country with much-needed rain. The combination of high-powered defensive and offensive capabilities coupled with the benefits of atmospheric ionisation which would lead to precipitation, was a major hit with the people of Kuwait. The Dagan Rainmakers have enjoyed widespread support and popularity since 1992.

Shouq Al-Gedawie was given the responsibility of liaising with the two Rainmaker pilots in 2002 after the previous liaison retired from the service. She was chosen because of her fine police service record, as well as for public relations reasons. It was decided that a female liaison would be seen as progressive by Kuwait's Western allies, especially the United States. Shouq is aware that her appointment is partially political, but has no real concerns about it. She is a no-nonsense woman who operates within her limits - be they physical or political.

She has been more active that her predecessor and is regularly on assignments rather than sitting back in the Dagan Unit offices. While maintaining her role as liaison with the two Dagan pilots she also maintains a position in the Kuwaiti National Police as an active agent.

 

Personality

Shouq Al-Gedawie is stubborn and single-minded. She was appointed because of her fierce refusal to back down in the face of terrorism as well as her assertive interpersonal skills. She is the niece of a decorated war hero and is known throughout the National Police force as a woman who has her eyes on a higher position. Despite this naked ambition, Shouq has worked within the Dagan Unit for six years. She has found that her employment is suffering from a glass ceiling and although she would be even less likely to achieve promotion in the regular police ranks she is finding it difficult to reconcile her ambition with the obviously limited opportunities available to her. To an extent, she has countered this by volunteering for a wide variety of special operations, often going under cover on covert assignments which is something she has been able to do because of her track record with the high profile Dagan Unit.

She works relatively well with the Dagan Rainmaker pilots, Daoud Abbas Al-Gallaf and Muhammad Al-Damin. She out-ranks them both and has been in the Dagan Unit longer than them as well, although she has never been offered the position as a pilot. It is possible that she could take over the position on short notice as she has had extensive experience in the Unit and has, at times, worn the Armour within the confines of the headquarters generally to test equipment and new additions to the Armours offensive and defensive capabilities.

 

Quote

"Under Section 2.03 of the Dagan Unit Procedures and Protocols Manual, you are expected to comply with my requests. I understand that you may not have read that far in the manual, Lieutenant Al-Damin, but I can assure you that despite your apparent illiteracy you are in breach of at least three sub-clauses of the Protocols. I suggest you close your mouth, rethink your argument and get me that cup of coffee. Now."

 

Powers

Agent Khanjar (Agent Dagger) is a competent and experienced police officer who has experience in the field and behind a desk. She is a capable hand-to-hand combatant, especially with her blade; as well as being an expert marksman. Apart from her police training, however, she remains a regular human with no uberhuman abilities.

 

Appearance

Shouq Al-Gedawie is an attractive woman in her mid-thirties. She has shoulder-length reddish blonde hair which is something of a distinctive feature, often commented on by her colleagues, rivals and the media. She was hired as much for her looks as for her experience and qualifications. She generally wears casual clothing and rarely dons the police uniform, although she does often wear a concealed Kevlar jacket.
