Farid [Arabic: فريد Fãrēd] is a playable character in the Call of Duty: Black Ops II campaign. Not only is Farid the tech expert of SEAL Team Six as he guides the team through Colossus in "Karma", he is also a mole in Cordis Die under deep-cover for the C.I.A..
He is playable in the mission "Achilles' Veil". On account of him being unable to be marked as friendly, he must fight against Yemeni soldiers in order to keep his disguise as a member of Cordis Die. Raul Menendez was aware that there is a mole in his operation since the start of the mission, and at the end, after shooting down a VTOL with Mike Harper inside, he instructs Farid to kill Harper to show his allegiance to Cordis Die. The player, however, is given a choice of either shooting Menendez, who is behind Harper, or shooting Harper himself.
Either option leads to Farid being killed by Menendez, Salazar or DeFalco.
When Menendez orders Farid (the player) to shoot Harper, he may chose to shoot Menendez in Achilles' Veil, but will be shot in the chest, lectured about loyalty, then shot again in the face, by Menendez, ultimately giving his life to save Harper. If he shoots Harper, he will be seen as shaken and mourning his fallen friend, but alive, He later will die either taking a bullet for Chloe Lynch or being shot by DeFalco.
These all show that Farid is a truly selfless, kind man. He doesn't like to see others in pain and would rather die than let someone else die. He is nicknamed "egghead" by Harper, and the two share a close bond. This being shown when Farid either is killed in Harper's spot or kills Harper, but then wants to be close to his body, mournful and shaken. Farid seems to have a strong bond with Harper, as he looks to be shaken with the death of him in his hands. In addition, he and Harper often converse, and Harper gives him the name of "Egghead", which is used initially in an affectionate term, and then used later on to communicate to Farid in front of Menendez. Farid, if he survives, seems to want to be near Harper's body, hinting that he wanted to pay his respects to him, and if he dies, he selflessly sacrifices himself to save Harper, further hinting that the two had a strong friendship with one another.
