Sassy Sagdiev's birth was unremarkable. His father, a miner, and his mother, a schoolteacher, gave birth to Sassy on April 5th, 1993. By all accounts, Sassy was not meant for a life of cold blooded work. He was destined to be, by his father's account, a miner, just as he was. As a kid he was pushed around and bullied by a group of travelling gypsies that were pitched up near his house. They picked on him a lot which enraged Sassy but he couldn't do anything as he was too outnumbered. He worked hard to save up his money, buying and illegal gun, he stashed it away. Waiting for an opportune moment to strike, Sassy plotted. In the middle of the night we awoke, took his rifle and headed out. No one knows how many he killed that night, but it was a slaughter. He trained, hard and became proficient with firearms and hand-to-hand combat with a high level of fitness and stamina. This group of gypsies that he was tracking traveled around a lot and were also into the illegal arms trade. This group had ended up in a region inside of Chernarus called "South Zagoria" which was quite remote with a lot of open land. Sassy liked the sound of this and was smuggled into the country illegally before getting setup with a few firearms. His hunt for this specific group of gypsies began but was swiftly interrupted by the outbreak of the virus in the province. He put the hunting mission aside whilst looking for a few associates to help him survive.
