Nasreen was raised as a Muslim. She soon immigrated to and became a citizen of the United States, living in Washington, D.C.. Nasreen later got married and around 2009 or 2010, she and her husband had a daughter, Zari Tarazi.
As Zari grew up, Nasreen taught her daughter how to cook Iftar, despite the latter's refusal to fast during Ramadan. While cooking, Nasreen preached that Ramadan is not just to honor God, but a time to celebrate tradition, family, and community.
In 2018, Nasreen took Zari to a park, where they played together on the swing set.
In 2042, A.R.G.U.S. raided her family's home, killing Behrad. Nasreen, her husband, and Zari were forced to flee and took refuge at a remote settlement camp.
Shortly after this, when Zari retrieved Behrad's confiscated Air Totem from A.R.G.U.S., she planned to rendezvous with her parents at their camp. However, the couple didn't show up and the camp was instead destroyed.
While time-traveling with the Legends, Zari confided in Mick Rory on her mother's religious teachings as she celebrated Ramadan and cooked Iftar on the Waverider, which made her feel connected to Nasreen. Zari also worked to find a way to save her family and change her home's future with the help of the Legends.
- Culinary expertise: Nasreen is a regarded cook, personally preparing Iftar for her family at the end of Ramadan every year. She also taught her daughter, Zari Tarazi, how to cook Iftar.
