Artyom Vladivich, a 36-year-old male Cherno-Russian hunter from Novy Sobor. In 1989 my mother sent me to a boarding school in Leningrad where I met my best friend Anatoly Kalashnik and attended for 6 years. When the Soviet Union officially collapsed in 1991 the school stop receiving funding and closed in 1995. When I was sent home and returned to Chernarus where my grandfather taught me to hunt. When I was of age I joined the Chernarus Defence Force and fought in the Cherno-Russian Civil War and served until I was 30-years-old, from then on I hunted and used the money I made from hunting to take care of my family. Before the apocalypse, I went hunting in Siberia where I ran into my old friend from boarding school, Anatoly Kalashnik. We were both staying at the same hunting reserve and hunted together for a couple of months. When I planned to go home Anatoly asked me if he could come with me and visit for a little while and meet my family back in Chernarus. When we returned I found my home country in ruins, and at that moment I needed to find my family. So Anatoly and I set out looking for them in Novy Sobor.
