Millat Zulfikar Iqbal
Son of Samad and Alsana, and twin brother of Magid. Born second, Millat is less bright and more interested in pop culture than Magid. After Magid is sent to Bangladesh, Millat comes into his own as a trouble-making, pot-smoking rebel, and every female classmate's object of affection. However, Millat eventually rejects this lifestyle in favor of fundamentalist Islam. He joins and becomes a major driving force of KEVIN. At the FutureMouse conference, he tries to shoot Dr. Perret, but instead shoots Archie in the thigh. Millat may or may not be the father of Irie's baby.
Magid Mahfooz Murshed Mubtasim Iqbal
Son of Samad and Alsana, and twin brother of Millat. Born first, Magid is intellectually precocious and insists on dressing and acting like an adult, even at a very young age. Magid resents his heritage and wishes he and his family were more "normal" and English. Samad essentially kidnaps Magid and sends him to be raised traditionally in Bangladesh. To his father's horror, Magid becomes a suit-wearing, secular, English intellectual. When he finally returns to London, he joins Marcus Chalfen's FutureMouse program. Magid is fascinated by the certainty of fate genetic engineering offers, and by having the power to choose another creature's path, as his was chosen for him. Magid may or may not be the father of Irie's baby.
