Dede is of Middle Eastern descent. She is mischievous, mysterious, cunning and powerful. She likes to party and live luxuriously. She is always ready to do whatever is necessary; especially when it comes to her hookah bar “The Flamingo Bar”. Coming from a family of diamond smugglers, she has established herself as a respected gin-runner within the underground crime world of modern day Dubai. She keeps a small inner circle of people who fear her as much as they love her. Using The Flamingo Bar as a front, her and her business partner Kris sell the best gin in Dubai.

The men who run the chain of nightclubs, and the muscle behind Shaqurs expansive crime syndicate. Most of the men are natives to Dubai. Each one of them has a punch that could knock out a truck.
