Hacob was born in Erevan in 1992, right after the collapse of the Soviet Union.
It was a tough time to be Armenian: he got involved with the wrong crowd at a young age and started dealing drugs and weapons in order to gain money and the respect of his peers. At the age of 17 something happened which would change him forever: while walking down the street in downtown Erevan he heard 2 young males speaking Turkish, so he followed them around until they were alone, and he shot both of them in the face, as a way to avenge his fellow Armenians slaughtered by the turks only a few decades before.
After that he layed low for a while, and then got back to his smuggling and dealing business, getting more and more involved with the J.C.A.G. (Justice Commandos of the Armenian Genocide) thus committing attacks against Turkish diplomats and political and military figures. After years of small attack he was ordered to go to Chernarus to dismantle a Turkish spy network sent there to gather info about the country; little did Hacob know that, due to the infection spreading just as he was in Chernarus, he wouldn't be able to leave the country again for some time.
