In Leavenworth, Washington to an american mother and Chernarussian Father.
Sasha had spent many years as a construction worker along side his father until his
mother passed away due to heart complications when Sasha was 26.
A week after his mothers funeral Sasha took a plane with his father to Chernarus to stay with his remaining family in Chernogorsk, he once again started work in construction only this time his father stayed at home. Sasha understood that his father was not handling his Mothers death very well, so Sasha would work extra long hours so that his father would not need to worry about work.
At times it was difficult for Sasha working in Chernarus, because even though his father was Chernarussian he had never taught Sasha how to speak the language.
Less than a year after moving to Chernarus Sasha's father had given up on living and died of heartbreak.
Sasha moved into an apartment in Chernogorsk two months after his fathers passing, where he continued working in construction and also started getting more involved with his community. He had started helping people build fences, shelves, dog houses and anything else people asked. He Enjoyed it so much that he would ask for no more than their company while he built. Although Sasha didn't understand much of what his neighbors said there were a few that spoke decent English. A few months later there were military setting up checkpoints around the city, Sasha wasn't sure why this was happening and when he asked his English speaking neighbors none of them knew how to convey it in English. He just brushed it off because a month before that his neighbors had felt uneasy and he assumed this had something to do with the event that had them all worked up. Having no radio or television Sasha was unaware of how bad things would get in the coming months.
It had been two more months and Sasha was going about his business like he always did when people started to get uneasy again, He was concerned but had no idea how to help calm their minds. Just a few days after the unrest more troops started arriving in Chernogorsk and the people started to riot, not knowing why all of this was happening Sasha locked himself in his apartment to try to wait it out.
He heard yelling, screaming, and even at one point felt his apartment shake along with the loud Crashing of what sounded like a plane near by. Sasha was terrified and did everything he could to be as quiet as possible in hopes that no one would find him.
It had been multiple days now and most of the sounds had stopped, there was the sounds of fires burning in the distance and the faint moans of what he could only assume at the time were people that needed help. As he unlocked the door and went to go look for his neighbors to make sure they were alright he stepped into a world he could have only imagined in his worst nightmare.
