Matyáš always felt like a failure in his father eyes, unwanted acquisition that was given to Drahoslav in order to turn into a real Chernarussian. That was the thing that Matyáš never wanted. He was always amazed by the so called western world, which culture was such a unreachable thing in the position and place of his birth. His father did everything to keep his mind off that topic, continuing his process of turning Matyáš into a real man. He wanted to teach him the basics of survival, of which he though was required in Chernarussian countryside. They were oftenly going out to the woods for poaching, in order to get used to the feel of guns and hunting, father taught him about starting a fire, treating the minor wounds without bandages, and surviving away from civilization. There was no talk about higher education, which cloud only pull Matyáš from the things that he should learn. That only increased the sincere hate towards his father. For stoping his dreams, for forcing his post communist preparing-for-worst lifestyle on him and finally, for turning his life into a constant stress and fear of something that is never going to happen.
Everything intensified after the Russian bombardment off the old Soviet base, which Drahoslav took as Russia another attempt to start an insurrection within Chernarus. He took Matyáš, his gun and went into the forest for hunting, expecting shortage of supplies as it was back in 2009. They setted up a small camp within the forest and went to search for animals. As they were preparing the just hunted deer, Matyáš noticed a strange figure, slowly approaching them. The person was dressed in CDF uniform, which made Drahoslav immediately point the gun towards the target, as he thought they were exposed of poaching, but the soldier ignored every sign of danger and continued shambling forward. Drahoslav lowered the gun, thoughting that the soldier is acctualy injured, and not trying to arrest them. That's when the person, being close enough to Matyáš father, unexpectedly jumped on him, pulled him down on the ground and started to bite and tear. Matyáš, stunned by the event that happened just before his eyes, stood there watching as his father got eaten by an infected. He came back to his senses just after Drahoslav stopped fighting and layed on the ground without a move and any sign of life. Seeing that the monster, with a blood of Drahoslav on his CDF uniform started approaching him, he allowed survival instinct took over him and ran back to the village.
As he arrived, there was nothing left from the little town that was buzzing with life before their departure. Every single building appeared to be abadoned, there was no sign of living being except for the monsters similar to the one that attacked his father, slowly roaming around. He sneaked past them, considering that they might be as dangerous as the one he encountered, back to his home, took all the supplies he cloud, and decided to head to the nearest city, trying to figure out what was going on.
