A Chernarussian native who's early life experiences were the biggest influence on his personality. Being raised on a farm near Krasnostav he's always been in touch with the traditional nature based life and the "think, but most of all practice" mentality that comes with it. He learned how to fire a shotgun, butcher an animal, make the most of limited resources, and most of all revere nature. After leaving the farm for high school he developed an interest in history and the sciences, and later became a high school biology teacher in Krasnostav after finishing university. As he grew more intimate with the sciences, so did he with the religion he was raised on, especially once aging had well kicked in. In the decade before the outbreak his interest in spirituality turned him to develop an interest in the more outlandish classical and even occult philosophies. He spends most his time at the campfire wondering about the philosophical significance of the outbreak, trying to distill meaning from it. One thing he has realized is that with the outbreak comes "near unlimited access to all of Chernarus' private libraries", an opportunity to travel his homeland in search for whatever books or stories he can get his hands on, to take attention away from the understanding that one day, probably sooner than later, he will probably be killed by either the infected or a band of robbers.
