Some infoboxes of world leaders, two former and one current. Casting (previously established) Tamlyn Tomita as Renata Barrica Alexander Siddig as Manib bin Hessani Armin Mueller-Stahl as Efraim "Eli" Zahavy Spoiler: Notes Barrica was established as being a former Philippines senator and daughter of the president whose murder in an attempted coup resulted in US troops being sent to the Philippines (explaining why the show mentions US troops having been sent to the Philippines just before Bartlet was inaugurated) and is a doctor of some sort, but not much else. I decided that she would be a medical doctor whose career was upended by the murder of her parents and after democracy was restored, felt like she needed to go into politics. I picked her as being a member of the Liberal Party because they're established (so it makes sense she could be the second generation of her family to be one of its elected officials) and because the party seems to fit her described ideals. Her deputies and predecessors as committee chair in the Philippine Senate are, of course, new. Her post-nominal letters show that she is a member of the Philippine Legion of Honor and Order of Sikatuna, respectively. Hessani previously had his infobox done years ago, so mostly this is just an update. The biggest change is obviously that he's no longer in power. I decided to show all of his prime ministers rather than have them behind a collapsible list since there's only three of them and they're all important. (Ahmed is of course, the de facto head of state right now, Mikkuri attempted a coup in 2015 that was foiled and Farra had the misfortune to be formally running the government when the country collapsed in 2016) Besides the show, the only backstory added for Zahavy was that his real name was Efraim and that he was Director of Mossad under the last Likud prime minister (Yahbin) before he took over the party during a period in the opposition. My backstory is that he was born in what was at the time Germany in 1936 (a nod to the fact that his actor is German) and immigrated with his family before the Second World War. After college, he performed his military duty with the IDF and saw action as a paratrooper during the Suez Crisis. After five years, he joined the Mossad and rose up the ranks until he was appointed to lead Mossad in the late 1990s. He was recruited to join Likud and he took over the party after Yahbin fell from power. Lazer (Zahavy's predecessor at PM during his first go-round) being president when Zahavy returns to power is a nod to OTL Prime Minister Shimon Peres serving a term as president when Netanyahu came back. Since the Israeli presidency is mostly ceremonial, I thought no one would mind that I'm establishing the current one as Mordechai Ovitz, a former Likud cabinet minister, whose term is set to expire in 2021 (presidents serve one seven-year term with no reelection).
