Before the outbreak Lusine lived Jermuk, Armenia with her family, as a young child she always looked up at her dad as a role model for she always saw him as humble as courageous. Her dad was also a soldier within the Armenian army, drafted due to the circumstances of the country. Lusine was always different from Armenian culture, valued the west and their extreme liberation amounts the people, something that is quite linear in Armenia unfortunately. She was never afraid to do things out of the norm, to experience new things and to understand the world around her. Lusine obtained a proper education via normal public school and later in life she went into college with the intentions of becoming a doctor for the soul purpose of making lots of money to support her family. College is also where she learned to perfect the English language, she was already taught the basics in public but wanted to understand the language fully and college helped her with that goal. All in all, her life was practically set in stone that is until her father died while in action in the army. This was a major turning point in Lusine's life since she held her father very dear to her and was honored by his actions, with him gone this just all shattered. She decided to quit college and join the army to follow in her fathers footsteps though this was proven to be difficult because she was a female and there was a lot of social stigma around females joining the army in Armenia. In her first attempt of joining the army she was shut down by the specific recruiter at the time because she was a female however after waiting for a week or two for a new recruiter to shift in and again she was accepted in. Lusine proved herself that she was worthy for she was in the army for nine years working in the air force, she was a sergeant and was proficient at scouting environments and being discreet about it. Lusine then got an order from the military to travel to chernarus to an emissary to extract a diplomat from chernarus, long story short diplomat was dead and Lusine was cut off and separated from her group while attempting to extract the diplomat in chernarus and doesn't even know said diplomat is dead.
