My character half Russian half Finnish man "Vladislav Kallio". Vlad moved to Finland when he was 9 years old. He has spent most of his life in Finland near Helsinki in a small city called Kerava.
Since the military is mandatory in Finland Vlad knows his way around guns. In the military Vlad was a Ground troop. During his time in the military he became closer with nature and after that he bought a cabin on a leak in Eastern Finland. He spent most summers in the cabin with some buddies hunting and fishing.
He was visiting his Russian side of the family who lived in Novigrad. His Family used to live in Russia but now the ones who Vlad has kept contact live in Novigrad. The reason why he first visited Chernarus was because a family member had died. Vlad had not visited Chernarus but after some time spent there he felt right at home and fell in love with the country. Nowadays Vlad lives near Novigrad because he wanted to live closer to his family. Unfortunately his family was not as fortunate and they got infected. Vlad was the only immune person in his family. Due to the loss of all of his loved one he has lost a piece of himself and has become angry at the world. He has fallen to a more dark path than before and is more short fused.
Vlad was a electrician in Finland so he is good with his hands. He was raised as a fin so he is naturally very anti social although he does not want to be and is constantly looking for people to spend time with.
After the outbreak he has tried desperately to fight off the infected and try to make the city that he was born in into a better place. Vlad has met some travelers who have the same kind of mindset as him.
