Behrad Tomaz was born around 2019 in Washington, D.C. to Nasreen Tomaz and an unnamed man. Soon after his birth, his family moved to Seattle, Washington. Behrad had an older sister, Zari, and the two were very close; Zari would read Behrad his favorite bedtime story, The Prince of Timbuktu, anytime he couldn't sleep.
In 2021, after A.R.G.U.S. established a dictatorship over America, Behrad and his family were forced to move to a ghetto district. Sometime later, Behrad and Zari joined the resistance, with Behrad becoming a vigilante wielding a mystical amulet in his family's possession.
The Legends created Heyworld as part of a plan to show humans that magical creatures were nothing to fear, they succeeded, but in doing so changed history, namely Zari's, since the plan worked, the anti-meta-human act never happened which in turn caused Behrad to never be killed and Zari to never join the Legends. As a result, Behrad joined the Legends instead of Zari and everyone's memories were changed to reflect this, with no one remembering that Zari was ever there.
When Sara Lance was corrupted by wearing the Death Totem, she made a glamor of a child version of Behrad to lower Zari's guard. Behrad innocently asked her to read The Prince of Timbuktu to him and they recited a few lines of the story together. However, Zari accepted that Behrad was gone, causing the glamor to disappear and Sara to reappear.
Powers and abilities
- Air Totem: Behrad's powers come from this totem, which allow him to channel and harness the power of air.
- Totem wristband: In the new timeline in which Behrad was never killed and joined the Legends in place of Zari, he has the Totem wristband that she wore in the original timeline.
DC's Legends of Tomorrow
- Behrad is the third male Legend to not be from the present, after Rip Hunter and Scythian Torvil.
- In the new timeline, Behrad is implied to be close friends with Ray Palmer and Nate Heywood, likely because in the original timeline, the two were his sister Zari's close friend and romantic interest, respectively.
Behind the scenes
