Amir Fadlan is the son of Abdel Fadlan, owner of Fadlan's Falafel—a fast food chain restaurant, and Samirah al-Abbas' betrothed.
Magnus Chase takes everyone to lunch at the food court in the transportation center and meets Amir there. He addresses the son of Frey as "Jimmy". He then recognized Sam and asked why she was not in school. She says she gets credit for school by tutoring "Jimmy" and his friends in geometry. He then goes and prepares their meal.
He is mentioned throughout the rest of the book.
Amir and his family have given Sam flying lessons as a gift. Amir is first seen through Valkyrie video Sam accidentally shot at her house, asking about what he had just learned in disbelief.
At the Provincetown Airport, he tells Sam that this is a lot for him to take in but he is trying to understand. He remembers Hearth and Blitz as Sam's 'math friends' and is surprised to see Magnus, who thought he was dead. As the boarded the plane, he inspects the son of Frey for fatal wounds. As they are about to takeoff, Barry is possessed by the goat assassin, which freaks him out. Sam plains to bring him to Asgard for a little while to get to know her life better. Before Magnus and Hearth jump to Alfheim with a petrified Blitz, he is reassured that Sam is the same as she always was.
Sam brought him to the Citgo Sign and tried to show him the Bifrost Bridge, with no success. After a pep talk from Magnus, he is able to see the rainbow bridge and the son of Frey helps him up. When they reach Heimdall, he is surprised to meet him and is confused to learn he had nine mothers. When the god tells the group about the invasion, Samirah makes an oath to Heimdall that she would only marry Amir, much to Amir's bewilderment. He questions Magnus when he learns that his uncle is going to be there. After they land back in Midgard he asks his companions if they would like food. He takes them to the transportation center and makes a meal for them while they discuss what to do about Utgard-Loki. He brings them their food and joins them, he sits between Magnus and Alex after a failed attempt to sit next to Sam. After Sam promises him to tell him everything when it is all over, she vanishes in a flash of golden light, much to his amazement.
