Turkish is a quiet man, who mainly keeps to himself. He has been an average carpenter for the majority pf his adult life. His true passion is building things with his hands. Prior to the outbreak, Turkish worked mainly doing odd jobs doing what ever he could find. Over time he had built quite the reputation as a craftsman. Nonetheless his severe drinking problem had a tendency to ruin everything. Drinking became a way of life, and his work and relationships struggled in return. Turkish began his path to sobriety near the beginning of the initial outbreak. This quest for sobriety lead him to Chernarus during a time that proved to be bad timing. The days prior to the outbreak, Turkish had spend time with other seeking the same path. He build a close bond with this group. On the day of the outbreak, know one showed up to the afternoon meeting leaving Turkish feeling abandon. This caused him to have sudden thoughts of drinking, and that's just what he did. The last thing Turkish remembers is having drinks downtown at a bar downtown before noon. He wakes up in an alley near the bar late that evening, only to realize that some isn't quite right.
