Ajay Ghale (अजय घले) is the protagonist of Far Cry 4. Ajay travels to Kyrat to fulfill his mother's dying wish for her ashes to be spread at Lakshmana. He quickly becomes involved in a brutal civil war against the oppressive ruler of Kyrat, Pagan Min. During the course of his journey, Ajay will make choices and they will have consequences in the future.
Ajay Ghale was born in mid April/May 1988 in Kyrat to Ishwari and Mohan Ghale, the founders of the rebellious organization. The Golden Path. He only weighed 5.5 pounds and was 17 inches tall. When he was only three years old, Ajay's mother fled with him to the United States and would reveal nothing to him of his home country, his father, or why she left Kyrat.
Ajay led a conflicted childhood and grew up causing plenty of trouble for himself and his mother. He eventually fell in with the wrong crowd and, during his teens, became caught up in a robbery gone wrong that resulted in a store clerk being shot to death. While Ajay was not directly responsible for the shooting, he turned himself in and bartered a deal with police - in exchange for no prison time, he provided the name of the person who pulled the trigger.
As Ajay was turning his life around, he learned that his mother was dying of breast cancer. She never told him, and it had now metastasized into her liver, leaving him with a scant few days to say goodbye in the hospice. The last lucid conversation they had was about Kyrat. His mom described the beautiful place they left behind when he was a child and spoke of regrets for things left undone. A few weeks later during the reading of her will, Ajay was given her last wish, an amendment made a few days before she died: "Take my ashes to Kyrat, to Lakshmana". With a mix of guilt, apprehension, and a little excitement, Ajay traveled back home to Kyrat to fulfill his mother’s final wish that was to spread her ashes.
Far Cry 4 Edit
Prologue EditAfter the death of Ishwari, Ajay Ghale returns to Kyrat to fulfill her last wish, to scatter her ashes at Lakshmana. He takes a plane through Patna, India, and from there he catches a tourist bus to go to Kyrat. There he meets a man named Darpan, who is his 'tour guide'. He befriends Ajay and the two converse a bit with him during the trip, but when they reach the border, the bus is stopped by the Royal Guard. After discovering that the Golden Path had smuggled weapons and soldiers onto the bus, the soldiers open fire at it. Ajay and Darpan run out of it but are subdued. Pagan Min, the tyrant king of the region, arrives and kills the Army unit's leader, saying he wanted them to stop the bus, not shoot it. He recognized Ajay and soon after that, he hugs him saying there is "a party" waiting for him, Pagan puts a bag on his head and Darpan's, and both are escorted to De Pleur's Compound, the residence of Paul "De Pleur" Harmon, one of Kyrat's governors. Once there, Pagan introduces Ajay to Paul and tells of the days when he and Ishwari were involved, Pagan takes a fork telling Ajay about her having fled Kyrat without explanation, he has approaching Darpan who sat with them: "When you mother decide to fled to US with you on her hip... ah... I can't did help but blame my self, but then I realized... it was not me, no, it was the fucking Golden Path !!" Pagan then thrusts the fork into Darpan's back and instructs to Paul torture him and find out what he was doing there, since one of Paul's functions was torture, then he tells Ajay to wait he there and Pagan calls Yuma Lau, another governor of Kyrat and stepsister to Pagan. An optional, Secret Ending triggers after about thirteen minutes while waiting for Pagan Min to return.
After that, Ajay takes the ashes of his mother and seeks a way out of the compound, he hears Darpan screaming in a room along the path to the exit. Ajay passes by the torture room, and he finds Paul torturing Darpan and see the exit, when arriving at the door a man named Sabal interrupts, he says that was a friend of his late father Mohan Ghale and that was part of the Golden Path, the rebel group created by Mohan to fight against Pagan, so he says he'll take Ajay out of that place. After an intense fight with the Royal Army, they manage to escape and Prologue ends.
Act One Edit
Ajay walks with Sabal to a a village called Banapur, there he talks to Ajay about the Golden Path and their fight against Pagan and his tyranny. There, a woman named Amita appears and discusses with Sabal about how he left Darpan to save Ajay. After that Ajay goes Amita and she will apologize and introduce him to Bhadra, a child that being involved in the war and to the Golden Path, she can't have a proper childhood and to make matters worse, the followers of Sabal and religious citizens believe she is the next Tarun Matara, the living god and the wife of Banashur (the God of Kyrati Mythology).
Ajay will then help her and Sabal destroy the radio equipment in Banapur's Bell Tower, as well as hunting wolfs for a local farm. After that mission, Sabal calls to Ajay and asks him to see Longinus, a priest and arms dealer(yes, both)who also makes several references to Far Cry 2. He will give Ajay a Skorpion (rapid-fire pistol) then they hear Sabal on a radio requesting for more soldiers to defend Banapur from Paul's men. Ajay, back goes back to Banapur, where he resecures the village and assists the Golden Path in repelling the next attacking wave. After saving Banapur and Bhadra who was trapped in a burning house, he saves some hostages for Sabal and liberates one of the golden path's Outposts that had been taken during the attack on Banapur for Amita, then soon she persuades him to join the Golden Path, and Ajay accepts believing that his mother had planned this to happen. Act one is then complete.
Ajay procedes down the road leading out of the taken outpost, and sees a technical approaching. In it, are a soldier of the Golden Path and Hurk. Hurk greets Ajay, saying he was the 'cavalry' and is Ajay's 'new and improved tat bro'. He tells Ajay that if he need help just call him or a soldier of the Golden Path and they will arrive to assist Ajay. After this Hurk leaves and becomes a playable when a second player joins the game.
Act Two Edit
After that, the map of Southern Kyrat is open and Ajay can releases all the bell towers and outposts in the area where Paul De Pleur's and Doctor Najjar Noore have ruled, which is optional. After free Kyra Tea Weigh Station, he meets Mumu Chiffon, who wanted Ajay's help to hunt rare animals for the Kyrat Fashion Week and use Ajay like a model. After Ajay finishes hunting all the animals (Which cannot be done until later into the game, as some of them are in the North), he returns to Chiffon, but to find his house is now full of broken furniture, and clothes that he planned to use are now dirtied. Ajay see a letter Chiffon left him, saying Pagan found him and he needed to escape.
After tearing down 5 propaganda posters he recieves a radio message from Rabi Ray Rana, radio DJ of 'Radio Free Kyrat' who asks you to take destroy Propaganda Centers and also asks him to sabotage the bell tower's radio transmitters. Once you do take the belltowers, they begin transmitting the Radio Free Kyrat signal.
He also finds Sharma Salsa a porn actress who also make action films and calls Ajay as a stuntman for some racing.After all this, he returns to the first outpost he had taken for Amita and there he hear a discussion in a house and there comes a woman soldier for the Golden Path, she tells Ajay that Amita and Sabal are discussing, as Paul De Pleur Harmon will attack one of the Golden Path camps, she will says Ajay is the son of Mohan Ghale and he is one of the most important members of the group, so he has a great weight in the back, she believes he will end this still between Amita and Sabal, then the player must choose one of the two:Sabal: If the player chooses Sabal, Ajay will go to the camp and save six members of the Golden Path, but will lose very important information.
Amita: If the player chooses Amita, Ajay will go to the camp and find a map. It is the information Amita wants, but she will lose 6 members of the Golden Path, he will give the map to Amita and she will study it.
"'Sabal:'" If the player chooses Sabal, he will save the Golden Path soldiers but lose the intel.
After that, Ajay goes to Bhadra and she tells him that the house of his parents was still standing, and she passes him the coordinates. She warns that this area was in Noore's control now. Noore is one of two governor's of Southern Kyrat. She also runs the infamous Shanath Arena. Ajay goes to his parent's house and find Yogi & Reggie, who were living there, after an argument, the two drug Ajay and transfer him to Noore while he is unconscious. He is stripped of his clothing and weapons, and thrown into the Arena completely naked, but not before Noore secretly informs him of a dagger hidden in the sand, hinting towards her intent for him to survive. After winning against several waves of enemies and animals, Noore will speak with Ajay after freeing him and says that she is being forced by Pagan to do terrible things because De Pleur has her family as hostages. Ajay accepted her apologies and agrees to help her because the Golden path already wanted De Pleur dead.
Ajay goes back to the Ghale Homestead and discuss again with Yogi & Reggie, they apologize and say they will leave, but they give Ajay a cigarette to calm down, Ajay then sees a frame on the wall and they say that it contains a Thangka, they said that Thangka tells the story of a legendary warrior of Kyrat that was sent to Shangri-La, the mystical land of legend in Kyrat. Ajay then goes after the five Thangkas and see the story of Kalinag. (optional)
After that Ajay speaks with Sabal and he asks Ajay go to a monastery and learn about his religion and his father. Ajay goes there and finds that the information showed that the monastery, a golden path armory, and idols would be destroyed if Ajay does not defend against the Royal Army attack. Ajay defends the monastery and soon finds the top of a mountain near it, where he meets Longinus. Longinus asks Ajay to retrieve a package of great importance from the Royal Guard (Pagan's elite forces) in the Himalayas, in exchange for the Golden Path will receive weapons. Ajay accepts and travels there with a Sherpa.
When he returns (If the player has the DLC Hurk's Redemption) Hurk will call you and ask for help to Ajay, he wants redemption with monkeys because he has been using them as suicide bombers, so he needs find 3 statues, Ajay refuses but later accepts as the Royal Guard also wanted the statue, then he goes to the Himalayas again wanting to end the Royal Guard, after picking up the first statue, Hurk presents 'The Impaler', a harpoon made to use in battle.
Ajay, back at the monastery, finds Amita and Sabal. They have weapons in the Armory room that Longinus had provided. They thank and speak to Ajay. They tell him that Longinus said De Pleur was preparing a group of soldiers on a plantation to plant opium and help Noore. Ajay is given the choice of a mission to help the Golden Path.
Amita: Amita wants to kill the soldiers and keep the plantations intact. She intends to sell the opium for money to purchase medicine or weapons, or possibly even build a clinic. She only reveals this if the mission is declined and Sabal's is completed.
Sabal: Sabal wants Ajay kill the guards at the plantation and burn the drugs to keep Kyrat free from the influence of the drug business once Pagan Min is overthrown(if you do this missiom you get the flame thrower).After that Ajay goes to a house southwest of Thirta, a village in the south of Kyrat, and then he goes to a small house where Amita is. If Sabal's mission prior to this is completed, she will be distraught and ask Ajay to protect two religious statues in Kyrat, called The Sleeping Saints. After defending them, Noore contacts Ajay and asked him to come see her in Shanath, when he gets there he finds Noore crying and, without explaining too much, she asks him to go after Paul and save her family. She reveals the location of a village which Paul always gets his torture victims from for his parties. Ajay enters the truck.
The truck takes Ajay to a small town in Kyrat called the City of Pain where Paul throws various parties to their best soldiers, Ajay calls the leader of the Golden Path (Amita and Sabal, depending on the last player's choice) and the leader will ask him to capture Paul alive. Ajay enters the main house and search the Noore's family but he hears Paul coming in the torture room, where he was to find a civilian there, he rescues him and takes his place on a chair with a bag over his head. Paul comes through the door talking to Laura Harmon, his wife and with his daughter Ashley. So Paul, after the call, takes off the bag and recognizes Ajay, who knocks him out.
He takes out Paul to a trunk of a car and go away, Ajay question about Noore's family and Paul's says, "Noore? Noore?! Hahaha!! She still thinks her family's still alive? ! Hahaha... We killed them years ago." The player is given the choice to blow up the car(killing De Pleur) or hand him to the Golden Path, if you get to the rebels, Amita will thank you and will torture Paul, later, he can be re-found east of Banapur in an an animal cage and the player can kill him. After that Ajay, back at the opium factory which he had taken and sees Amita sad, Ajay will question her and she will say that the Sabal wants to destroy the Rochan Brick Factory, Noore's opium refinement factory, since Amita wanted to take it for future use, then it is given to the player the third choice:
Sabal: If the player chooses Sabal, he will meet with soldiers who will help him, he will go to the roof of the factory and plant a bomb in the factory chimney and enter there, will plant three C4s and flee the place, in turn destroying the factory.
Amita: If the player chooses Amita, he will meet with the Golden Path, a sergeant will say that Ajay must disable three air controllers to force the soldiers from there, when they leave Ajay comes, but once you enter, he will become affected by the hallucinogenic gas inside(basicly you start tripping balls whilst killing various enemies).Ajay goes to Amita and Sabal who request for him to kill Noore. Ajay discusses with them and says he will decide the Noore's fate, so he goes to the Arena, there he goes inside the Arena and hears Noore narrating the games. Ajay sabotages the arena fight, to which Noore sends soldiers to the control room to try and kill him. Ajay eventually finds her and points a 1911 to her back. If the player shoots Noore, she falls dead into the Arena. If you spare her, Ajay will surprise her and tell about her family, she will take the Khukri on his leg (in a holster where he left it) and she will kill herself, then she will fall into the arena and be eaten by animals. Regardless of which choice the player makes, the Arena will fall under the control of the Golden Path.Leaving there Willis Huntley will contact Ajay and ask for your help to make the airport runway clear of enemies for him. In return, he will give details of his parents and the Golden Path, and also help you go after Yuma, he also say he works for CIA and this scares and leaves Ajay without many choices. After taking the airport and speaking with Willis, he says he came to help the Golden Path, but asks Ajay not talk to anyone about because he has secret information about the parents of Ajay, Yuma, and Pagan Min. He asks Ajay to kill two lieutenants from Yuma to alert her to Ajay's presance. He tells Ajay about her past and also talks about Mohan Ghale and the fact who he tried to kill Ishwari for her wanting to get away from Kyrat with Ajay in her arms. Afterwards, Ajay kills the two lieutenants who were in the Himalayas and when he returns to Willis in his plane to leave the mountain, Willis will say that those lieutenants he killed were agents of CIA undercover and U.S. wanted to erase his presence in Kyrat. Since Ajay is a loose end now, Willis pushes Ajay out of the plane and a soldier of the Royal Guard knocks him out. Act two is complete.
Act Three EditAjay wakes up in a cave and sees Pagan Min, Yuma, and the soldier who captured him. Pagan tells to Yuma who wants Ajay alive, so the player realizes that he is trapped in Durgesh, the prision of Yuma. When she and Pagan go away the guard drug's Ajay and he sees a Rakshasa, a Shangri-La demon, Ajay quickly makes a Grapple and climbs down. He escapes from the prison, and in front the prison he feels very cold and before passing out, he sees something big coming in his direction and he finally passes out. This is the only appearance of a Yeti in the game without DLCs.
Ajay wakes up and hears on a radio in his front, is Pagan talking he found him passed out and took Ajay to one Bell Tower on the North of Kyrat, he apologizes to Ajay and said he did not know that Yuma did that, then he reveals he spoke to Amita and Sabal about its location and says that the men of Yuma were going to the place of extraction, Ajay then does some favors for Pagan in exchange for improvements in the Extraction Point. But in one of that works he hears about an expedition who Yuma sent to the Lost Valley in the northern mountains of Kyrat to seek a relic that could grant immortality to whom possess it, Ajay, in order to try to destroy all of Yuma's opportunities to get hallucinogens (or something like that), he decides to go after this expedition, after defending his helicopter he gets into it and contacts Sabal and Amita, talking about the expedition and the relic.
After arriving in Lost Valley, the Ajay's helicopter falls and Ajay is knocked unconscious. After waking up again he hear screams of a horrified pilot, Sukhwinder, yelling that he is bailing out of the helicopter. Shortly after, Ajay Ghale slowly awakens to the sounds of what presumably is an interrogation between Sukhwinder and an unknown individual stating, that one of Pagan Min's men told him about an expedition from Yuma send to the valley looking for a "Relic". Promptly after the interrogation, Ajay decides to locate the pilot. However, part way through the search, he enters a shrine of sorts, and notices a pair of individuals that don't seem to be part of Yuma's soldiers. After killing the lot, he continues the search and eventually runs into a relay station. After getting spotted by more of the unknown soldiers, a fight commences for control of the station where Ajay is ultimately victorious. Upon entering the Relay Station, he notices a radio and manages to contact help.
After hearing about a coming storm, he stays put where he eventually hears another conversation on the radio. It refers to him as an "interloper" and another individual is heard saying that he must be killed before the start of a "ritual." Deciding to prepare for an all out assault, Ajay is able to successfully defend the relay station from the attackers.
The next morning, Ajay will receive a transmission from an individual, dubbed "Master Sandesh", claiming that he has taken Sukhwinder captive, and is preparing to kill him. When Ajay asks why he has decided to kill the pilot, Sandesh states that he wants to see Ajay, and judge him to see if he is fit for the eyes of "Yalung", but if he doesn't come, Sukhwinder will die. Ajay then heads over to another shrine, where he is attacked by more soldiers. Upon killing all of them, Ajay runs over to Sukhwinder to free him, only to be knocked out by Master Sandesh, saying that he will meet "Yalung", and will be judged.
Sometime later, Ajay awakens, and hears someone yelling (presumably Sukhwinder), and sees a larger figure snap the individual's neck, before the larger creature yells and runs off. Ajay then realizes he has lost all of his equipment, except his flashlight. While exploring the cave, Ajay prepares to climb a ledge, only to see a Yeti eating, to which the Yeti stares at him, and it runs off. Continuing his search, he comes across a grappling device, and proceeds to escape the cave. During his return to the relay station, Ajay also manages to retrieve his equipment from a camp, to which he manages to secure. Later on, Ajay then defends the relay station again from Sandesh's soldiers.
The next morning, Ajay will then receive another transmission from Sandesh, claiming that he has the honor of being fed to a Yeti. Master Sandesh then says he knew why Ajay came for the relic, and then says he cannot contact for help, as the signals are jammed, except for the channel he is on. Upon exiting the relay station, he hears a conversation between two soldiers, telling each other that a radio maintenance crew crashed their truck, to which the latter soldier saying that the other soldier should send another soldier out to check the radio jammers to see if they haven't frozen up. Ajay then decides to head to the crash site, and realizes that he has to disable the generators for the radio jammers, disabling two.
However, Ajay manages to obtain a wingsuit, and soared down to a small shrine, to which he encounters another Yeti. Upon killing the Yeti, orange mist starts to arise from the Yeti's body, only for it to vanish.
After destroying the last generator, Ajay returns to the Relay Station via the disciples truck, and prepares for another assault, as before. The next morning, Ajay attempts to call for help, though he doesn't receive any broadcast. However, Ajay hears two of the soldiers talking about explosives, and an unknown individual being drugged with an elixir, and being placed in an offering with other unknown captives. Ajay then ambushes a convoy, and then heads over to the prison to find the bomb maker, while trying not to trigger the alarm. Having killed a few of the prison guards, Ajay finds the bomb maker, named Digvijay, and manages to escort him out of the prison, all the while killing guards.
Returning to the relay station, Ajay has to face off against Sandesh's guards, who are now armed with explosives. Upon surviving another night, Ajay will hear Digvijay on the radio, claiming that he "cannot completely thank him for saving his life." Digvijay then tells Ajay that he has left homemade explosives at random coordinates, but, also tells him about the "Relic", and how the elixir "changes" human flesh. Ajay then proceeds to recover Digvijay's explosives, also managing to destroy the disciple's elixir supplies in the process. Having destroyed the elixir supplies Ajay takes a disciple's truck, and returns to the relay station, in which he defends the station for one last time.
Later on in the morning, Ajay finally manages to get in contact with Golden Path officials. However, when the officials say that Ajay has to destroy Yalung's Relic, Ajay then says he wants them to pick him up at the peak of Hajura'Amako Hatama, a mountain, and leaves the relay station. However, Ajay realizes that he needs an oxygen mask to proceed to the peak. After killing a disciple, and looting his body for the oxygen mask, Ajay continues up to the peak, killing a Yeti partway. Upon finding the Relic, Ajay fires at it, only for him to black out momentarily.
Quickly having awakened, Ajay turns around to see that the Relic is creating more Yetis to protect itself. Regardless, Ajay manages to destroy all the roots to the Relic, to which it explodes, knocking Ajay out. Later, Ajay struggles to get up, only to realize he has turned into a Yeti, and to his realization, screams, when a disembodied voice says: "Your path is with us, not against us. Awaken and walk beside us."
After Ajay allegedly turns into a yeti, he wakes up in bed of the Ghale Homestead with Amita or Sabal at his side, both iram say he fainted and found him before he froze to death.Thus continuing the game's main campaign. The relic gave Ajay illusions, and, in desperation, ran out of the cave where he was rescued, continuing the main story.
Act Three (Continuation) Edit
Ajay, after the events of the Valley of the Yetis, wakes up in his bed on the Ghale Homestead and beside him, the leader of the Golden Path, who tells him that he had fainted and the Golden Path found him nearly succumbing to hypothermia. Ajay then proceeds to free all of the southern outposts (optional).Ajay travels to Shanath Arena. Amita or Sabal then tells him to take the King's Bridge which linked the south with the north Kyrat. After taking the bridge, Ajay enters the North, already having some knowledge of it. Amita then tells him to meet some faithful people who assisted with their cause in Utkarsh. After arriving, he heads into the basement, where he sees various weapons and resistance members who thanks Ajay to link the south with the north again. Ajay then hears Pagan Min talking to the hosts and after a conversation, killing them. Enraged Ajay follows Pagan with a Buzzer, He stops Pagan from getting to a safehouse and kills him, but shortly after, the real Pagan calls to Ajay and says he killed a Stuntman and body double called Eric. Then Sabal and Amita ask Ajay to meet their in a small hut, there their see Pagan makes an announcement on TV, revealing the location of Yuma and that she will defend Pagan from anyone, even the Golden Path. Then Ajay goes to the KEO Svargiya Mine to face Yuma. Once there Yuma blows a drug in Ajay's face that makes Ajay hallucinate, he sees Yuma as Kalinag, and he finds himself in a Shangri-la distorted duel of psychological knives. Ajay finally kills 'Kalinag', or better ... Yuma.
Ajay, after the Yuma's death, goes to Bhadra and she says than Amita and Sabal are arguing again and who Ajay chooses will lead the Golden Path, permanently.
Sabal: If Ajay accepts Sabal's mission, he will direct Ajay to liberate Jalendu Temple from the Royal Guard to facilitate the crowning of future Tarun Mataras, such as Bhadra. Ajay defeats several attempts by land, air, and water by the Royal Guard to retake the Temple. Completing this mission will make Sabal the permanent leader of the Golden Path, for better or worse.
Amita:. Amita orders Ajay to destroy the Temple if he accepts her mission. Ajay will infiltrate the temple, allow Golden Path rebels inside, and then plant two C-4 charges on specific parts of the temple. He will escape by boat from the island as the Temple is destroyed by the explosives. Completing this mission will make Amita the permanent leader of the Golden Path, for better or worse.
After the player chooses and completes the mission, he meets the leader of the Golden Path in specific places, there the leader will be with Bhadra. If Amita, she will say that Bhadra is free from being the Tarun Matara, and if the leader is Sabal, he will initiate the transformation of Bhadra in Tarun Matara, however, as they both talk to Ajay, they will direct him to defend Utkarsh, a village which is being bombarded by Royal Guard Artillery over suspected treason for harboring rebels. After repelling the attack by either defending the village or destorying the artillery emplacements, the leader calls to Ajay for a chat, there he/she will ask you to kill the other, for example, if the player's choice Amita, she will ask you to kill Sabal and if the choice is Sabal, he will ask to kill Amita, but Ajay can spare them, disobeying his leader.
Confront Pagan Min EditFinally, Ajay meets the Golden Path to spearhead the last attack on Pagan's Fortress. The Golden Path links up with Ajay, commencing the attack. Shortly after a battle, the army then takes the fortress so Ajay can go to the Royal Palace unapposed. Climbing the mountain, Ajay finds Pagan preparing a dinner for them. Pagan presents Ajay with two choices, one, to shoot Pagan Min on the spot, or two, to spare him, so he may finally succeed his mother's dying wish.
Shoot: If the player shoots, the credits roll. Ajay will return to his home to talk to the leader of the Golden Path telling them that Pagan is dead, but unfortunately not finding Lakshmana. Afterwards, the player can climb the fortress and pillage the body of Pagan, giving you two valuble items worth 650,000 rupees and 250,000 Rupees.
Spare: If the player spares Pagan, he will lead Ajay to Lakshmana and Pagan will say that she was the half-sister of Ajay since Pagan and Ishwari were involved romantically, but Mohan killed Lakshmana and tried to kill Ishwari, who, in self-defense, killed him and fled Kyrat with Ajay. Ajay finally fulfills the dying wish of his mother, laying her ashes next to Lakshmana, and Pagan proceeds to leave by helicopter. At this time you can shoot it down if you have a heavy weapon(LMGs, such as the PKM, or MG42) or a rocket launcher(LK-018 or RPG 7). Ajay returns to his home and calls the leader of the Golden Path, saying that Pagan is gone, and he found Lakshmana.
After the Main Campaign Edit
When you finish the game, Yogi & Reggie become neighbors of Ajay and 4 new side-quests become available, Longinus also has 4 side-quests that will be rewarding, although these can be completed during the entirety of the game when they become available. The player can also complete the remaining two missions for Hurk, but these can have more parts if you have the DLC, and Ajay will now see who is the leader of the campaign, whether that be Sabal, Amita, or perhaps Ajay himself.
Sabal: Sabal will be in Jalendu Temple, there the player will see that he was killing people who were on the side of Amita in front of Bhadra, he justified that Bhadra now had responsibilities, he pushed Ajay away screaming at him, then the player can kill him or spare him.
Amita: If the player has chosen Amita, she will be 'recruiting' child soldiers to the Golden Path without your permission, she will also say that Bhadra 'disappeared' and she will never return, implying that she killed her, Ajay could kill her or spare her.
After all is said and done, you can capture any outposts or fortresses you have not already captured, complete side missions tou have not already done, or hunt animals to fully upgrade pouches and bags you have not already upgraded. Even though Pagan is dead, random patrols of royal army and royal guard soldiers will continue to spawn. If you have not already destoryed all the "Pagan's Wrath" convoys, they will continue to drive around terrorizing Kyrat.
Personality and Traits Edit
Ajay Ghale is a quiet man of few words, always thinking about the right choice and the path you should take, thus making the player to create their own Ajay. Often Ajay finds himself in difficult situations and near death, but always managed deal with them. He can act in stealth, initiate frontal assaults, use vehicles, and utilize his knowledge to overcome any obstacle in his way. His previous experience in the Army has made him a proficient parachutist and combat survivalist. His appearance may have been inspired by Sushant Singh Rajput, as his facial construction and appearance are very similar to Ajay. He's always wearing a green jacket, blue jeans and blue sneakers, and, unlike Jason Brody, protagonist of the previous game, Ajay is rarely amused. He seems to have some experience with firearms and training with the Kukri, although far from perfect.
In Far Cry 4 Ajay uses various types of weapons and equipment to overcome obstacles in his way, such as:
Grapple — A hook with a rope in which Ajay uses to climb to elevated locations.
Kukri — A large blade Ajay uses to kill enemies stealthily.
Wingsuit — A glider-like costume equipped with a parachute. It is received by Willis in the middle of the campaign or can be purchased earlier on.
Weapons — Ajay can use 3 weapons of the player's choice and a handgun, also the player's choice. But to get all the weapon slots, you need to hunt and skin the necessary animals.
Camera — Used to mark enemies, like the Eagle Vision and Eagle Sense in Assassin's Creed.
Ajay can also use C4 and Explosive Proximity Mines to create traps.
Healing Items — Ajay carries numerous items used for healing, such as medicinal syringes, bandages and matches (to cauterize his wounds).
Hurk — The first time Ajay meets Hurk is after Ajay release their first outpost. Ajay sees him as an action-movie hero-wanna be, but after asking him to help him with his redemption (DLC: Hurk's Redemption), they end up being best friends. When playing co-op, Hurk becomes Player 2.
Amita (Optional) — If the player chooses to side with Amita, she will become the new leader of the Golden Path (as long as the player does not shoot her in the very end). She is seen to be persuasive, always taking the role of the victim. Whenever the player has to choose between her or Sabal, she complains that since she's a woman, nobody will listen to her, no matter how right she may be. Their relationship can be very rocky, depending on Ajay's decisions through the game, though she will be slightly flirty at some points.
Sabal (Optional) — If the player chooses to side with Sabal, he will convince Ajay with his words, telling him that he's an old friend of his father, Mohan Ghale. Sabal is very religious and knows how to use words wisely to bind Ajay in his choices. He always talks of religion, the "old ways" and tradition, telling Ajay that it what his father would have wanted. Depending on Ajay's decisions, their relationship can be quite tense at times.
Pagan Min (Optional) — Normal Run: By following the Golden Path, Ajay will see Pagan as a villain and a tyrant. Ajay tries to end his rule by taking his outposts, destroying his factories, and assassinating his subordinates and other governors (Yuma, Paul "De Pleur" Harmon and Noore Najjar), but to know who Pagan really is, the player must search for notes, diaries of his deceased father, and listen to what Pagan tells him by radio. These will influence whether the player chooses to kill Pagan Min or spare him. Secret Ending: In the prologue, if the player waits for roughly 13 minutes, Pagan will return to the dinner table and lead Ajay to Lakshmana, thus finishing the game in less than 15 minutes.
Mumu Chiffon — Ajay, after meeting Chiffon appears to treat him with great respect during Kyrat Fashion Week missions. Chiffon treats Ajay as a student and they both seem to like each other. Unfortunately, Mumu Chiffon leaves Kyrat before the Kyrat Fashion Week event , since Pagan finds him and Chiffon is forced to escape.
Bhadra — Bhadra seems very attached to Ajay, as shown in the mission where Ajay must choose who will lead the Golden Path. Ajay also seem to like her and to want the best for her. Whoever the player chooses to support, Bhadra, sadly,will not end up good hands: Sabal turns her into the Tarun Matara, while Amita hints at killing her. She was a true victim of the war.
Yogi & Reggie — At the beginning, when they attempt to drug him, Ajay was not very happy with the two friends; however, in the end, he seems to have forgiven them. In fact, Ajay comes back a few more times to experience the new drugs developed by the two "psychiatrists".
Paul "De Pleur" Harmon — Ajay seems to have a lot of anger "De Pleur" since he tortured and killed Darpan, who was trying to defend it from Pagan and Paul, it is the first villain that Ajay will back, and the player has a choice to kill him, or leave the Golden Path, decide what to do.
Noore Najjar — Ajay has a troubled relationship with Nooré, as she tried to kill him in the Arena, but both quererm the same, Paul's head, both to help, she asks Ajay to save his family that is with Paul, in turn, she put Ajay in his fortress.
Yuma Lau — Ajay had not many fears Yuma, but after Willis said she was involved with the escape of Ishwari Ghale in Kyrat, he goes behind her for answers, but after the restriction of Willis and capture Ajay in Durgesh Prison, Ajay was behind her like Jason behind Vaas in Far Cry 3.
Longinus — Ajay and Longinus harbor a mutually respectful relationship. Both are friends, and they aid eachother directly and indirectly. Ajay hunts down Longinus' 'lost sheep' for forgiveness of his past sins, and in turn, Longinus supplies the Golden Path with weapons and eventually, Ajay with an incredibly powerful rocket launcher with lazer-guided missles.
