Vladimir Pavlov has survived for quite some time alongside his older brother Fyodor. The two brothers were always close since a young age, and have grown closer since the outbreak. Vladimir and his brother served in the Chernarussian Defence Force, joining up to combat the communists in the civil war. The day the outbreak began, Vladimir was at home while his brother was out in town. Vladimir saw his sibling and parents turn, saw them try to kill him, saw them mutilate themselves in the attempt to get to him, something that will haunt Vladimir forever. Vladimir was lucky enough that his brother did not turn and arrived just in time to save him, Vladimir will never forget what his brother did for him. The two brothers left their family home behind, their now deceased family locked inside. Vladimir always wanted to go back, give them mercy and a proper burial, but his brother never let him. Vladimir assumed that Fyodor thought that he would be incapable of doing this and would die there. Vladimir and his brother have taken extreme measures to survive this new world. They have walked until their legs refused to move, hungered so much that they feared the growl of their bellies would attract the zombies. They have been in the presence of those few people that consume the flesh of their fellow humans, Vladimir and his brother understand that food is hard to come across but have as of yet not consumed human flesh. Fyodor no longer seems to be in the mood to talk, the brothers have been isolated long enough that all of their emotions have bottled themselves up and one brother rarely knows how the other feels. They need to find other people, other survivors. Vladimir can't live this way anymore, he wants a home. He wants a bed he can call his, reliable food and water sources, and most importantly, someone other than his brother to talk to.
