Artyom Brugatzkij - is a male, 30 years old, non-volunteer soldier involved in past conflicts in Chernarus who deserted and lived in wilderness for some time. He is the type trying to help helpless, team-player. He sometimes feels like being a person with ability to lead others, but he is not sure about if he could manage that. He is focused on wilderness survival, crafting, loves nature.
He was born in Bosna, however doesn't speak the language as his parents decided to move to Czech republic when he was about 5 YO - both were educated people looking for answers in the era which does not allow that. For "political" reasons they were fired from job and had to move on. When he grew he decided to join the army. In Chernarus there was a civil war with lots of smaller local conflicts. Artyom, as a part of NATO involved army was deployed to the area with many other soldiers to take part in war. After he was exposed to situations where command ordered his unit to "unofficially" solve the problem with local guerilla group (bunch of villagers trying to defend their lives and property against both local government and invading forces) which involved killing women and children, he decided to desert. He ran into forests where he stayed for several months. Then he came back to civilization and realized there is not much left. Since then he is roaming around, trying to survive.
