Asterik "Uhlí" Jellinek is a 22-year-old from the Czech Republic. He was born in the mining town of Kutná Hora. He grew up with his father, Vladimir, and his twin sister, Orna. His father mined silver in the nearby mine during Asterik's childhood. During this time Orna and Asterik went to the local schoolhouse to study and learn while their father worked. Neither child knew of their mother and Vladimir never spoke of her. The story they were told when they were older was that she was a German woman who was traveling who the country and left their father to continue on her journey. As a teenager Asterik began working in the silver mine with his father and his sister became the new teacher at the schoolhouse. Asterik earned his nick-name, Uhlí, when he was the first to discover the town's large quantity of coal in the mountainside. Despite being the first to find it the Czech government quickly made their town a new commercial mining facility and the residents of Kutná Hora were forced to relocate. The Jellinek family took this opportunity to leave the country. They packed their things and started to make their way to Prague to find work. On their way to the city, the infection started and the family has been traveling ever since. They have only recently been lead through the minefields to Chernarus by a mysterious man who promised them safe passage in exchange for the last item of value the family had. Vladimir's watch.
