"Welcome to Shanath Arena. Ajay Ghale, face your judgement."
— Noore Najjar
"Noore's maternal instinct for all of Kyrat knows no bounds, be they man or beast. Like a mother eagle watching her nest, she would do anything to protect her children and keep them from evil. Visit Shanath Arena and witness her benevolence first hand."
— King Min's Kyrat

Noore Najjar is a character who appears in Far Cry 4. Although she is presented as the tertiary antagonist, she is actually an ally, and seeks Ajay Ghale's help in rescuing her family from Paul De Pleur.

She is one of 3 generals for Pagan Min. She supervises the making of Poppy into heroin and the Shanath Arena.


Dr. Noore Najjar was a doctor working with aid organizations in Kyrat back in the early days of Pagan Min's reign. After witnessing the state of Kyrat first-hand, she published papers condemning the human rights abuses that were taking place there. Pagan responded with an olive branch. He promised reform, put together a panel of experts and created a 12-step improvement plan to draw Dr. Najjar back to Kyrat. He invited her to be part of the first round of presentations. He even extended the invitation to her whole family, offering them a place in his palace for the trip.

Noore flew out with her husband and two sons. Pagan was a gracious host and everything was going well until the day of the presentation. The presentation was genuine, Pagan's 12 step plan was actually a good plan. Whether or not he intended to implement it is unknown. Even after the presentation, Noore continued to speak out against the way the Kyrati people were being treated. So, Pagan Min did what he did best. He kidnapped her family and gave them to Paul Harmon(De Pleur). After that day, under the threat of harm to her family, Noore has worked for Pagan Min. She runs the arena, overseeing vicious blood sports and trafficking humans as both participants and slaves. Noore also runs Pagan’s heroin business, under the careful watch of his right hand woman, (Yuma Lau). Noore processes the opium from (Paul De Pleur) into heroin, and oversees the logistics of export to the west. [1]

Events of Far Cry 4Edit

Ajay first meets Noore after being thrown in the Shanath Arena after taking drugs from Yogi & Reggie. After being victorious, Ajay is introduced to Noore in person, who tells him that she does not want him dead anymore, and needs his help.

Later, Ajay visits her at the Arena. She tells him about her family, and asks Ajay to sneak into De Pleur's residence to find her family. After getting De Pleur inside a car trunk and fleeing towards a Golden Path camp, De Pleur laughs and tells Ajay that Noore's family was killed a long time before.


After escaping with De Pleur, Ajay comes back to the Arena, and after killing the guards for the arena and sabotaging an arena fight, he manages to get to Noore. When confronting her, Ajay will slowly walk towards her unnoticed, with a pistol aimed at her head. The player is then given a choice of shoot or spare her.

Should the player shoot Noore, Ajay will do so and she will fall in the arena, dead. Should the player spare her, Ajay will approach Noore. When she asks Ajay about her family, he will tell her that they are long dead. Ajay tries to comfort her by saying that she is "free now", and "she can leave Kyrat"; however, she says she is nothing without her family. After she cuts her own arm, she jumps into the arena, where she is eaten by multiple animals.

Missions appearancesEdit


  • Unlike her fellow governors Yuma and Paul, Noore doesn't allow moonshining in her territory, and she threatens any distiller with forced participation in Shanath if she catches them. 
  • In addition to being an opium processor and the lord of Shanath, Noore also runs whores in her territory, the most successful of whom she allows to open their own brothels, with Noore receiving a percentage of their profits. 
  • In one radio broadcast it is revealed that Noore hosts large S&M orgies in the caves of her fortress, which Rabi Ray refers to as 'get togethers'. It is not revealed whether or not Noore herself participates.  
  • Pagan Min suggests to Ajay that Noore had actually come to enjoy her role as governor, with all of the murderous and criminal implications that role suggests. 
  • Noore's actress also played Liza Snow in Far Cry 3, as well as Rose Washington in Watch_Dogs. In all three of those appearances, either the character dies, or the player is given the option to kill them. 
  • Noore, like Yuma Lau and Eric, will die, regardless of the player's choice. 
  • Noore does not narrate all the events of Shanath Arena, only the special events. 
  • After the mission "Shoot the Messenger", you can't go back to the interior of Shanath, only if the player wants to fight in the arena. 
  • Much like with Paul and Pagan Min, Noore doesn't harbour any actual dislike towards Ajay Ghale and instead seeks his help on multiple occasions.
