Andrei Grew up in an orphanage until the age of 14 when he ran away. He lived in the woods occasionally coming into large towns to beg for scraps. He liked this way of life as it allowed him to live closely with nature. He grew to hate people who trashed nature and had no respect for it. He lived this way for years up until the zombie outbreak. After the outbreak he headed north into the black mountains. One day while foraging for food he stumbled across a camp. The people of the camp accepted him and brought him in. He was soon indoctrinated into their belief in The Babayaga and joined them in worship. He believed that the babayaga was responsible for the apocalypse and they must please her with sacrifices of human meat as well as protecting her forests. He lived with the people of the camp for months until he decided to go on a missionary trip of sorts to fulfill the babayagas will farther in south Zagoria and to spread the word looking for more loyal followers.
