The Jackals of Arabia, also known as the Arabian Jackals are a criminal organization based in the Middle East. They are allies of the European Intelligence Network in the Cold War II series alongside the Eurasian Hyenas and are one of many animal motivated criminal organizations in the 51st Century.
Of the animal motivated criminal organizations made by the wiki founder, it is the smallest owing to its smaller nationalities (the Jackals feature Arabs, Afghans and Iranians, the Hyenas feature Uzbeks, Kazakhs, Armenians, Azerbaijani's and Georgians while the Vixens feature various nationalities).
The Jackals make their first appearance in the Cold War II series where alongside the Eurasian Hyenas based in Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia are one of two criminal organizations solely composed of women.
In the 22nd Century, the Jackals are based in the Middle East and to a lesser extent, the Greater Middle East but the only country that has any Jackals in their country is Afghanistan where many Jackals end up as prisoners of largely U.T.O.C.I.P or the Arab Syndicate.
The Cold War II series also marks their only physical appearance because after this, they do not appear again and alongside the Thunderspirit organization have one time appearances (the Old English Alliance appears in the series as well as The Great Irish Heist, Cloak and Dagger and the Celtic Alliance also feature in Agents of Tomorrow).
In the 51st Century which involves the events of Defenders of Earth and The Mammal Wars, the Jackals are one of many animal motivated criminal organizations composed solely of women in the world except for East and South East Asia, Australasia and the Americas alongside their allies the Eastern Vixens and numerous others.
By the 51st Century as well, it is not uncommon to find any animal motivated criminal organizations owing to monster wars in the East with reptiles including dragons, hydras, mutant reptiles and even dinosaurs and in the West with wild animals. Other criminal organizations mentioned in the 51st Century but that make no appearance are the Tigresses of South Asia and this time, the Jackals and the Hyenas found in the Greater Middle East have merged into the Eastern Vixens because of their relation to the Soviet Union.
However, the Jackals still exist as they still exist in the Middle East and are just as powerful as ever.

In the midst of the PHANTOM-Vixen conflict, the Vixens begin to gain much more influence in the United Kingdom after the final of the last series of University Challenge because after the final is broadcast, many students in universities in the United Kingdom join the Vixens which in turn causes the series to end after a long duration.
But the PHANTOM-Vixen conflict also attracts other British foreigners (British-Pakistanis, British Afghans, etc.) so, any students that go to the Vixens get sent to the Vixens allies, the Jackals and the Tigresses. Below is a table for recruits the former pick up after the end of University Challenge:
