A few month or weeks passed when Husky ran into the people of Generation Zero. Having lost her contact to Emily, she went by the name Nastja again most of the time.
When Nastja first met the guys from Gen Z, she wasn't sure if she should follow them or not.
She stumbled upon them when they were fighting some infected and decided to help out, but staying just out of sight. Curiousity got the best of her though, and she decided to check out who exactly thought it would be a good idea making that much noise. She is still not sure if she decided to tag along because of Wongs speech about equality and the importance of infected, or the way they delt with that loudmouthed guy. Maybe a bit of both. Anyway, she thought she would a have a great time, loads of fun, and that everything would just be a temporary arrangement - like she was used to.
She was not exactly prepared to instead, find a family and friends with the group. At one point she would've hoped it lasted. But as it is, nothing really lasts forever …
The people from GenZ gave her yet another nickname, shortening the name Nastja into Nas.
During her time with Generation Zero Nas fell in love with James, who she later married. He was also the one bringing up the topic of finding out about her past. Together they were able to get their hands on some documents, revealing her real name: Laska Vrubel, as well as a few information on her parents. Even though she remembered her real name now, as long as she was with GenZ, she would be called Nas.
A few weeks must have passed after she joined the group, when she ran into someone in Chernogorsk, asking around for someone called Emily. Nastja wasn't sure if it was the same Emily she knew but eventually took her chances and got reunited with her old friend. She was happy to see that Emily as well, seemed to have found someone who cared about her - another chernarussian named Jona.
Life with Generation Zero had been good. It seemed to give her a place she belonged to, people who cared about her as much as she did care about them. Looking back, Nas is not sure about that anymore …
It must have started near Tisy. When they got into an argument over their alliance with 24th. From there on, things just seemed to get worse. They lost Jack, Jordan started to go crazy, everyone fought and got into arguments over petty and stupid things. She had hoped things could get solved for a very long time … but it seemed to just get worse.
Nas decided to continue her hunt for information on her father. It eventually brought her to Polana where some chernarussians had settled down. She should've never let the others close to that settlement.
She wasn't happy with either sides. She wasn't happy about the way Maxim treated her family and she was even less happy about the way they reacted. About Luca making her choose like this. About her wanting war because of words, when she had just told her to "deal with it" when she told Luca about the way 24th had acted towards her. It pissed her off. But more than that … it disappointed her …
She started to keep her distance from them then. Especially from Luca and Caleb, only meeting up with Viggo and Poppy, introducing Viggo to Jona and Emily too. She also did visit Polana more frequently. Because even though she didn't agree with Maxims views, she didn't believe him to be a bad man and even started to befriend him.
Things got even worse with GenZ when she heard of Luca and Caleb selling out the settlement to the Chedaki as well as torturing someone for them. It was then when she finally seemed to turn her back on the two of them. They wanted her to pick a side? Then so she would.
