In order to practice my Russian, my character will be Dmitri Lavrov. I plan on playing with a friend of mine (that will be applying later) that also speaks Russian. Dmitri speaks a limited amount of English, and my friend is going to act as his translator. Dmitri lived in Vladivostok, but was in the region when the infection spread, and has since been stranded here. His main motivations are going to be survival, and attempting to get a vehicle working so he can get back home to check on his family he inadvertently left behind
He is taller, thin, and has a weathered look about him. His zest for life has all but left, however, he loves his family too much to just give up and give into the creatures lurking around. He is wary to trust, but once he trusts you, you'll have a very loyal, valuable ally.
Dmitri joined the military directly out of high school, as many Russian men do, and served four years in the Navy as a boatswain's mate, helping tie up and untie the ships as they docked and left port. After finally finishing his contract, her decided to take a trip to Chernarus to meet friends he had made in boot camp. He arrived a few days earlier than they, but they never arrived, their flight having been cancelled due to the pandemic in the region spreading so quickly. Hes just been trying to survive and get home ever since.
