Blake Livingstone was born in 1995 in rural Australia. In his early life, Blake's mother died of cancer prompting him to live with his highly abusive father. After years of torment and regular beatings, Blake had had enough and finally mustered up enough courage to run away, even though he had near to no knowledge of the bushland he lived in. After days of wandering around the dense Australian bush near to death, Blake stumbled upon a local Aboriginal tribe and he pleaded for safety. The local elders of the tribe helped Blake back on his feet and decided to take Blake in as a member of their tribe and family. Blake was eager to learn and defeat the challenge of the Australian bush, so he would not discriminate who he asked for help from. Blake learned skills of gathering and navigating from the villages female elders and the skills of hunting and providing from the male elders of his new family. When Blake turned 18 he and many of his brothers of a similar age decided to leave the bush and to gain jobs with the skills they had learned, this allowed Blake to get many farmhand and hunter jobs around many rural towns of Australia.
Having a success full career so far in Australia Blake was content with his lifestyle and the choices he made to become the man he was. In early 2015 Australia was struck with a huge drought and Blake was put out of work in every town he visited until one day he met an oddly dressed man with a weird accent in a bar. Boris Vladislov was a Chernorussian farmer who had a semi-successful farm in his native homeland of Chernarus. After a few drinks and the realisation that he was going to go into negative on his bank balance, he decided to take up an offer from Boris to come to this foreign land and work on his farm doing all the jobs he used to. It also helped that he was flattered by Boris' description of him as a 'jack of all trades'. After arriving in Chernarus Blake was quickly handed back his trusty rifle and put to work on Boris' farm. Thinking that this unstable state was similar to the home he left, he tried going out and being the outlandish socialite he was but being quickly rebuffed by the local population and being segregated as an outcast. However, he had one a friend in Mathys Kruger @Saffa who he quickly started calling Matty for his ease of use. The two men became close friends learning guitar and sleeping in Boris' barn. Until one day everything changed.
