Having emigrated to Chernarus as a young child (due to my Mother's work here) I do not remember much of my time in Ukraine, only that we were a very poor family. I lived a fairly happy life in Elektrozavodsk until the outbreak, after finishing secondary school I worked as a shop assistant, it was very low pay but after 6 years I had saved just enough to buy my own plot of land, just north of Lopatino. Here I farmed potatoes and lived a quiet and peaceful life until the outbreak.
After the outbreak struck I managed to band together with a group of fellow survivors, we travelled north in search of any remaining military presence which would be able to assist us but were sadly unable to find anyone of any authority, after a few members of my group started to threaten others in the group I decided it was time for me to go out there on my own.
Travelling Chernarus on my own had its perks, without anyone else to worry about I became more and more self-sufficient, I had turned my back on my old life and was now a survivor. Preferring to stay hidden in the forests of Chernarus rather than risk my life entering the dangerous cities, I became quite the hermit, trying to keep my distance from possibly dangerous situations and revealing myself to people who approached me, and seemed friendly.
