Karim Wahid is one of the four playable survivors in the Marseille episode.


By age 26, Karim Wahid had completed a masters in Weapons Engineering, climbed Everest and become CTO at an arms manufacturer in Dubai. At 35, he quit his job and headed to the French Riviera in search of adventure.


  • Karim's quote "They shall not pass" is a reference to Emil Renard from Andre Renard's interview. Andre mentioned the last words of his brother before the undead killed him, which was "On ne passe pas!", which is translated to "They shall not pass!".
    • Alternatively, this quote is also a possible reference to Gandalf's well-known quote "You shall not pass!" in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.
