What abilities and skills does your character have?
Altaaf has been fully indoctrinated in jihad and fundamentalist Islam, and it can be argued brainwashed. He was trained in camps in Afghanistan (his canon is set pre-9/11) with the intent that he would be part of a jihadist cell in India-controlled Kashmir with the intent of liberating his country. Within the cell, he is the expert in missile launchers and RPGs and has some leadership capabilities, being the nominal strategist amongst them, even if he is just as manipulated as his brothers. What helps his abilities is that, as his master Hilal knows, he has no other reason for living except the mission and his own revenge, and as such is expendable. Altaaf is also something of an artist, or at least he may well have been had he gone down a different path. He loved drawing as a child, before his life got turned upside down, and in his daydreams, he sees himself painting. Also, he's not bad at singing and dancing.

How do you get these skills/abilities across when roleplaying or writing for said character?
Well, he has mentioned his love of drawing and dancing a couple of times to people in RP. Otherwise, he's not demonstrated his jihadist training in RP, although in his conversations with [livejournal.com profile] theprivate_ryan he has told her about what he is, what his life is like, and how he has totally bought all that Hilal has told him about being 'his missile'.

How well do you think you do at this portrayal? How might you improve?
At the moment, he is still a developing character, and he has little to do to really show this as of yet. As his story continues, his training will become an important part of what happens to him, and his skills will be shown.
