Born in Krasnoe, Boris Sokolov was raised in an orphanage and never knew any of his Family.
Throughout his childhood, Boris grew up a good student, staying in school and learning but was also a bit of a trouble maker when out in the streets. Already at a young age, Boris picked up on drinking alcohol which was the start of a terrible addiction of his.
At 17 years of age, Boris was diagnosed with liver problems and was advised to not drink any alcohol or liver affecting substance. This is when Boris turned to Coca Cola and has since enjoyed the beverage above any other.
After graduating, Boris was involving himself in more trouble by affiliating with a local gang which had connections to the mob. Boris worked as a courier and runner for the gang and commonly wore a balaclava which is where he was given the nickname "Балаклава Борис" translating to "Balaclava Boris".
At 19 years of age, Boris was sent to the south island prison where he remained until the infection began. He spent a lot of his time praying and going to the Orthodox Church to pray in hope for forgiveness of his crimes he had committed in his misguided youth.
Boris managed to escape along with a few other convicts though some did not make the cold swim and others were eaten by the infected when swimming to mainland.
Despite his criminal past, Boris still has much love for his country and it's customs. He has always remained optimistic and positive regarding that aspect and those who threaten his country, he will fight against.
This is where the tale of Balaclava Boris begins.
