Abdul is a leader in Brick city, the community where Chocolate Thunder takes place. In this sketch we visit him in his younger days where he visually and characteristcally takes cues from the 60's civil rights and Black Power movements.

Although very similar to a Black Panther in character, Abdul's modern day appearance features colorful dashikis and imported African apparel. To maintain consistency through his growing up, Abdul would have been pictured here in a more muted colored shirt with black pants; narratively this would signify Abdul blossoming from the struggle of the Panthers into a more fruitful community movement.
