He was named after Egyptian former president Anwar Sadat
He is an Anthropomorphic Pointer depsite being Egyptian but he does wear Muslim clothing in his soldier days. In this case he wears Islamist terrorist type clothing in battle but in Argentina he wears white robes and a white headdress with a black headband. In his government time he wears a white shirt, a black and white spotted tie, a black jacket and black trousers.
Anwar is said to have parallels to a terrorist leader which earns him the nickname "Ayman" after Al-Qaeda's new leader Ayman al-Zawahiri. As well as being Charlie's left hand man he is also the leader of the Arab dogs alongside others such as Saddam and Kenan who says that when they are in Argentina he needs to change as he intimidates young children. As well as "Ayman" Charlie calls him the "Emilio Massera of the Animalian Patriotic Front" and so does Siad who says that he "changed the Arab wing into a terrorist group."
His terrorist qualities come in when Anwar is involved in producing weaponry for the Animalian Patriotic Front with the other Arab dogs and arms running to Argentina. The operations mainly take place in Asia from the Middle East to as far out as North Korea but he decides that after four visits there he withdraws the operations and the operations continue in Mongolia and China. As well as firearms Anwar also uses bombs and has them sent to Argentina ready to use when the National Protection Process and the Animalian Patriotic Front attack Mechanikat's Junta. He is a keen crime boss and an ace military leader and a master of deception, fear and terrorism.
As well as that he is very skilled in torture using some of the methods of torture he saw in North Korea on Siad. But though Anwar may seem like a barbarian this is merely a mask as he is really very sophisticated off the battlefield and is also good with young Junta children but when Josefina sees him and many of the other Arab dogs she becomes scared and starts crying. However he is shown to be very compassionate with the babies but is surprised that they are called "babies" and not "toddlers" because of their age because of their age as they are less than a year old.. In his government time though he is much more professional and also more sophisticated.
