Janek was born on the 09th of January 1991 in Novigrad. Janek never knew his father due to him being a russian-soviet commanding officer, stationed in Novigrad. With the fall of the soviet regime and the withdraw of the troops in february, his father got killed in the riots. Leaving behind 1 month old Janek and his mother Helena. Janek never had an easy life. Chernarus wasn't wealthy straight after the soviet regime was gone and his mother Helena barely could keep them alive with her washing saloon she ran. Without having a strong father at home, Janek turned violent and disrespectful very early on in his childhood. This lead to him getting into a lot of trouble in school and with other kids. As Janek grew older things got worse. He discovered drinking, drugs and girls and all the nightlife Novigrad had to offer. When Janek turned 17 and his high school ended, he didn't bother searching for a job. As his mother kicked him out of his home for doing nothing good, Janek knew himself that he went too far. Not having any other opportunities really, Janek joined the CDF. It was the 13th Light Infantry Battalion he joined in as a recruit. He went through basic training and learnt the meanings of discipline and respect surprisingly well considering he has been a different person his entire life. Life in army was though and therefor Janek did a lot of cocaine in his army time, to keep up with the drill, the running and the exercises. One day he got caught and suspended. He spent 2 weeks in jail and after that he got thrown out on the streets again. Janek had nothing, this was the very moment he had nowhere to go. Eventually through a friend Janek got suspended with, he got to meet Adam Broz, one of the underbosses of the Bilek Family. He offered him a security job for a Family meeting. Janek had no choice, and the payment was way better than in the army. He was ready to do what had to be done to get some Korunas. It surely wasn't the last job, Janek would have done for the Bilek family. They had lots of jobs and Janek showed himself disciplined and useful. The longer Janek was around for, the more he got involved and he earned the trust of most of the underbosses. One evening, Janek got ordered to overwatch a meeting in one of the families restaurants. At this very evening there was a assassination planned on Tomas Bilek, the head of the family. Multiple people got gunned down, such as underbosses and also one of the two right hand men of Tomas Bilek himself. Whilst most people looked out for themself, Janek covered Tomas and caught a bullet for him, easily deflected by his vest luckily. This was a crisis in between the family, leaving behind a lot of important people dead. Janek was made right hand of Tomas due to his loyalty and will to sacrifice himself.
