Oto Mareš was born in the city of Brno, Moravia, Czech Republic on February 26th 1987. His early childhood was rather normal among many Czech boys, he grew up in the city, but often visited his grand mother who lived in the plains of Moravia in the town of Rohozec. Here he would farm hopps with his grandmother and helped her harvest throughout each Summer. Eventually his grandmother had passed away. Of course he missed her dearly, but learned quite a lot from her. She taught him how to brew and he would utilize this skill of his throughout the majority of his life. During his teenage years, now living with his parents in the city of Brno, he would join a small gang with his friends at the age of 14. They were "Chuligáns" or hoodlums who would often steal from local convenience stores and sell drugs. He also got into many fist fights. He continued this behavior up into a two-year college. Which he hosted an American exchange student from New York City. He was from Brooklyn and was Nicholas Mazzeriello. They became great friends, as Nicholas' father was a member of the New York Mafia. Nicholas' father had visited them once and Oto took his opportunity to become connected with them. Now that Oto had a good connection with Nicholas' family he asked if he could come to America for opportunity and to follow the American Dream. He would work part-time as a brewer for a local craft brewery and would bar tend in the club that Nicholas' father ran. After a few years, he believed he had finally made it. However, this would take a turn for Oto when he was tasked to join the crew of Mafia members to accompany them in their departure to Chenarus. Unfortunately when the infection hit, he became lost and stranded apart from the crew. Eventually he would find his way back and be their loyal bar tender serving them nothing but the best brews.
