Yuri Izanov was born in the city of Primorsk, far west from South Zagoria. He was an accidental child, not being planned by his parents at all. This would lead him into a traumatizing childhood. At the fall of the USSR, 1991, Yuri's father was a drunk who barely worked enough to support his family, while his mother did the best she could to care for her son. Every night, it seemed as if Yuri's father made it a point to get at least one good whack on Yuri, to keep him in line. Yuri despised his father and found comfort with his mother. That is, until she was murdered by Yuri's father in the later months of 2000.
September 2000, on a night like any other, Yuri's father would proceed to give him a few bruises after a couple of drinks. Shouting ensued throughout the house, only interrupted by the single shot that echoed through the house. The second would follow shortly. Two quick deaths where neither suffered. Yuri would forever be traumatized by this.
Following the deaths of his parents, Yuri had no choice but to resort to hard work. He had come of age where it is normal for Chernarussian men to begin working for their country. Yuri was healthy and fit for his age, and has no problems jumping into jobs of physical labor. Seasons quickly flew by as the years unfolded like a sprouting flower. Yuri would grow into a strong young adult with an ambitious future ahead.
