You're really from Baghdad? Welcome aboard! How are things over there?

I doubt old Zar is from Baghdad, more likely, judging from his command of English, he is jokingly referring to Zarathrustra's origin in persia, now Iraq.

My handle is a spin on the religious teacher/prophet, Zoroaster of ancient persia, who lived approximately from 628 BCE to 551 BCE.

Some scholars today credit him with the first to invent a dualism of good and evil- others say he is a mythological figure wrapped around a historical person, so digging through the legend is a tricky maneuver.

Apologies if i gave out a false impression.
