The Zelenogorsk Incident:
Upon arriving in South Zagoria, Ondrej made contact with a fellow Chernarussian named Lukas, former CDF and partially connected with a strong nationalistic movement within the region. It was through this relationship that he was mad aware of an incident occurring at Green Mountain, whereby a Takistani mercenary was loudly announcing his intent to do harm to two Chernarussian women. Eager to make further connections, Ondrej offered his services and quickly rendered them in an ambush at Zelenogorsk, successfully assisting in the capture of the mercenary and disposal or capture of his associates. From this, he formed a favourable relationship with Marta and Toni, the two Chernarussian women who the Takistani intended harm upon.
A Lesson in Respect:
Whilst travelling with Lukas, having just finished squeezing information and co-operation out of an informant, they happened across a group of disrespectful foreigners in the town of Lopatino. Though they carried Chernarussians amongst them, the majority were foreign, loud and entirely unreceptive to Ondrej's attempts at any discourse. This would've been passable had the loudest of the group, a man whom Ondrej would later come to know as Dieter [name given], or War [name discovered], not acted so brashly, openly mocking him and his attempts at offering useful information.
Rather than walk away and look weak in front of his second, he decided to initiate a surprise attack after following them out of Lopatino to the northern side of Vavilovo. The attack went off without a hitch, capturing all 4 of the party on the road, though they failed to capture the 5th. Upon reaching their desired location, Ondrej interrogated Dieter and Joel, kneecapping the latter for disrespectful behaviour. Having had a conversation with Khandra, their associate, he had learned that Dieter cared enough to offer his protection to both her and her sister. Using this to teach him a lesson, he forced Khandra to physically mutilate Dieter's face. Once he had had enough, he left the mutilated Dieter roll off of a steep cliff, though he survived his fall and grievous injuries.
A few weeks after travelling extensively with Marta and Toni, Ondrej discovered that his associate Lukas had been captured by the aforementioned Takistani mercenary and his associates. It is unknown to him how the mercenary was aware that Lukas was involved, though this did not lessen his anger at Lukas offering information in exchange for his life. Shortly after bargaining with the Takistani to free his associate, to prevent any further leakage of critical information, as well as any blowback on himself, Ondrej killed Lukas and buried him atop a hill in Pustoshka. This marked a turning point in his approach to business, moving away from partnership in favour of running his own crew.
To Capture A Predator:
One rainy, foggy evening, he found himself in the small town of Kabanino after a long day's travel. After observing the town for some time, he noticed two people, clad in black, moving into the town and resting up by the well. Their movements and behaviour interested him somewhat, so he decided, after sweeping the area, to make contact and find out what they were up to. Upon making contact, he immediately clocked a suspicious relationship between the two, one being a man named Nathan and another being a woman named Cecilia. The actions of the latter, stuttering, backing away from Nathan, then attempting to run away once Ondrej engaged Nathan in conversation, indicated to him that she was in need of assistance. Though he was alone, Ondrej managed to get her to a safe place and discuss the situation, away from Nathan.
After much back and forth with Cecilia, he eventually decided to help her out, having learned about her connections with the group of individuals who had offered him disrespect in Lopatino. Figuring she could be a useful asset to help him keep tabs on their movements and actions, he formed a plan and set up an ambush, which was interrupted somewhat by the boyfriend of Cecilia, a half-breed named Jiri. They managed to successfully capture Nathan, interrogated him, utilising torture and manipulation in an attempt to get him to reveal the location of Cecilia's friend, Morgan. Though they failed in their task, he ultimately died and they began a sweep of isolated locations in the north, eventually finding and rescuing a badly wounded Morgan.
