Koby Nivek was born in the great city of Novigrad alongside his twin brother Koby Nivek. They were best friends growing up and often got confused with one another, as they would wear the same cloths. Both of them where brought up under the protection of their single mother and their uncle "Big Dick" Karel. Being raised by a single mother meant that they had to work alongside the other Niveks to put some money on the table. They managed to grab hold of a club after the previous owner mysteriously disappeared one night when "Big Dick" Karel paid a visit. They made some good money at the club and after some time they started to use their dog training skills they picked up when they were younger to start an illegal dog fight pit under the club. This served The Niveks very well when it came to pushing drugs, especially to the newly found leader at the time Kevin "Motherfucking" Nivek. When the infection hit, they followed him through Novigrad where they met a group of raiders now known as "The Dead Batteries". While Kevin Nivek left towards South Zagoria, the twins stayed in Novi to help the comfort dealing there. Kevin stayed in contact with them and when they got the call that he is going to kill Buzzo they started moving towards South Zagoria.
