He's an investment counselor and Mira's father. While managing the funds of others he can't cope with his wife Sude's expenses and starts to transfer some of the cash he has collected to his own account. Then things become uncontrollable and he loses a large amount of his customers' money after a decrease in the stock market. As he borrows money from money brokers to pay his customers, things get worse. Although Faruk seems to be an unreliable man and a coward, he's very affectionate towards his daughters, especially Mira. He has better relations with them than their mother. He's known as a handsome man in the surrounding and he's a competitor for Selim as he's Ender's ex-boyfriend.
