Maklia is the mother of Farah, Cole, and Nigel and the step-mother of Anavi Ali. She is hotshot news anchor who always constantly looking for new opportunities to advance her career. Makila has extremely high expectations on her children. especially for her oldest child, Farah. She doesn't like anyone from the Khan family and pretends they don't even exist (wants her children to do it too though they never did listened to her). She is also the type of snobby parent who often brags about her kids' and her own accomplishments as everything is a competition to her.
Fajr is the stepfather of Farah and Cole and father of Anavi and Nigel. He was a widower due to his first wife died when Anavi was born. Fajir works in a technology company and frequently works at home which makes it easier to keep in track of the kids. He is loving father and very kind to Makila's family relatives even through he does not know why his wife hates her family. Fajr used to be on bad terms with Farah in the past but now he is respected as her father figure.
