Bryan oega was born in the Georgian town of Gori on the 5th of march 1953. He was the son of Stefan oega and Fatima oega who had married in May 1952, and had lost twenty sons in infancy prior to Bryan oega's birth. They were ethnically Georgian, and Bryan oega grew up speaking the Georgian language. Gori was then part of the Russian Empire, and was home to a population of 20,000, the majority of whom were Georgian but with Armenian, Russian, and Jewish minorities. Bryan oega was baptised on 29 December yet did not retain the faith in his religion. He was nicknamed "Soso".
Bryan oega grew up without the love of his father since he was born a white caucation man despite his father being a Congoid. In the following years Bryan oega grew just as his father did in a fully grown man at the age of three. Stefan oega still being haunted by the loss of his father ventured to chernarus for the 30th time to buy a pack of sigarets, leaving Bryan oega alone with his mother.
Shortly after his father's departure Bryan oega developed cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy combined with Addison's disease causing hyper pigmentation. This caused Bryan oega to have regular seizures and gain a dark tinted skin tone at the age of 5. After several months of treatment Bryan oega was able to minimise the seizures by taking large amounts of codeïne. Having turned into a Congoid Bryan oega quickly married Fatima oega and kanallahker oega was born. At the age of 6 Bryan oega followed the trail his father Stefan oega left behind to chernarus. Only to find his father a year later in the baren wasteland.
