Yuri was born in Moscow in the middle of Cold War. He was the only son of working class Rusinda and Korman Komarov.
Yuri thrived in school despite the hardship of his life in Moscow and showed a natural talent and tendency for science and literature.
Since his parents could not afford any luxuries like a TV or even a radio for most of his young life, Yuri was widening his horizons
through reading books and somehow managed to avoid the heavily censored ones from the Soviet propaganda.
The Soviet army "recruited" young Yuri as soon as he was done with school in order to offer him the university education that
his parents could not afford. Yuri naturally chose and finished Soviet Army's medicine program as one of the top ones of his class and served
a whole 3 years in the army. He never really needed to fight in any battle but like all partied that were involved in the Cold War back then, he was
always combat ready even though his combat and weapon training was restricted to the absolute basics just like every support/medical army
When the Cold War was over and USSR dismantled. Yuri tried to set up his own medical practice in the suburbs of Moscow. However, despite his
love for medicine and helping others, he wanted to travel and explore the now "open" borders of the rest of the world that were closed back during
the Cold War... So he traveled frequently to Europe and some of the former USSR countries. Sometimes for just tourism, other times he spent a few
day in isolated towns and villages helping people out that didn't have access to even the basic medical treatment or even opinion.
It was during one of those trips that he ended up in Chernarus. Especially after the country's devastating 2009 civil war, their infrastructure especially in the country side
was still fairly limited and he was traveling in various towns talking to people and also offering medical opinion, check ups and treatments if possible.
Even during the first weeks of what would be the outbreak, Yuri decided to stay and help as much as he could the people in the areas that were affected by those
"militia groups" that eventually turned out to be the infected ones.
Counting on his medical knowledge and his army training he was sure he would be able to see through that challenge. However, he never expected things to get this
bad and this fast...
