- "Goddamn power hungry Nazis"
- "These stones they mine, allow Ra absolute power in the stars. And all who stand against him, are punished in white fire. [...] The portal is far too dangerous for our uncertain one."
A native Egyptian and a Lieutenant in the British army, Wasif hails from a prominent and wealthy family in Cairo. This meant he was able to attend the finest schools where he excelled as a scholar. While he could have simply rested on his laurels and lived off of his parents' wealth, Wasif surprised everyone by instead joining the British military - which had maintained an uneasy presence in Egypt for decades - in order to protect the interests of his fellow countrymen. Wasif and his commander, Captain James Beal, immediately became close friends thanks to their shared sense of humor and mutual love for the domino game of Chicken Foot.
Wasif is not particularly skilled in the ways of war. He considers himself to be man more of logic than action. However, when dire situations arise, Wasif shows no hesitation in unleashing a clever sarcastic remark. Thanks to this smart-alecky (some would call it off-putting) demeanor, few people have been able to grow close to Wasif. He has always been hesitant to let his guard down. His personal goals and dreams remain a mystery to even his closest friend, Beal, who considers Wasif a riddle that's not interested in being solved.
After Dr Bruckë's kidnapping of Professor Langford, Wasif reluctantly followed Catherine and James through the Stargate in an attempt to save him. Wasif described the sensations felt by traveling through the wormhole as "Interesting".
Upon arriving on Abydos, Wasif was the first of the group to notice the temple they were in was not abandoned when he found a bucket. Shortly thereafter, he met Serqet who incapacitated him. After a fight, ending in Serquet being sent through the Transportation rings, he and the group met a young Kasuf. Wasif was able to gather that Abydonian sounded somewhat similar to ancient Egyptian, which, after some practice, made him able to understand him, and the people of Abydos. After Aset, who ruled Abydos in the place of Ra, returned to the temple using the Transportation rings, the group fled and followed Kasuf through the Abydonian desert to his outpost: Nosdevli, he agreed with James when he said Abydos looked a lot like Egypt stating it was "very sandy".
When Wasif and the group arrived at the camp, they lost Kasuf and were cornered by the inhabitants. They were then taken prisoner and tied to a tent pole, guarded by Motawk. Wasif suggested they should "stay calm, and let the solution present itself". He managed to break free of his restraints, freeing Catherine and James as well. He was accidentally stabbed by Motawk, when they tried to escape. Visibly upset, Motawk used the Hand of Horus to heal Wasif's wound. After Catherine exposed the Eye of Ra medallion, the people of Nosdevli apologised, almost worshiping them, and were subsequently considered emissaries of Ra.
At the banquet in thrown in their honor, Wasif bonded with Motawk, sharing a pipe and drinks, and love grew between the two. The next morning, when Aset visited the outpost with Bruckë the outpost and asked for slaves to "prove their worth" in a knife fight against Stefan, Wasif stopped him from volunteering. After the fight ended in one of the Abydonians being killed by Bruckë, Motawk joined the group in their plan to stop him. Later, James commented on the fact him and Wasif were holding hands. Hesitant, Wasif told him it was "local custom". As the group put their plan in action, afraid that they might never have the chance again, Wasif and Motawk shared a final kiss.
Motawk was brainwashed as well and became a Horus Guard, in service of Ra for "many years".
