The details behind the origin and history of Aminedi (named from the "cutting wind" of the desert) remain unknown, including his recruitment into Desert Sword. This Iraqi super-team was dispatched to abduct a Kuwaiti scientist during Iraq's forceful occupation of the nation. They fought the United States' Freedom Force and, rather than let Desert Sword take the scientist, Pyro killed him instead. Desert Sword defeated Freedom Force, forcing them to retreat.
Recently, Aminedi was revealed to have died by the mutant-killing disease, the Legacy Virus.
