Piotr was the second son out of a troubled marriage.
His father Viktor was married to a Portuguese women and found ways to leave the soviet union to live a quiet life with his wife Maria and his children, Piotr and Katerina.
But the ghosts of war didn't allow Viktor to enjoy life, always remembering him from the horrors, resulting on him becoming an alcoholic.Soon, he started to discount his troubles on his children. Many times Piotr had broken bones, but he managed to handle all the weight of the world on his shoulders, and decided he would grow up and be a better man than his father.
Piotr's sister died when he was a teenager, due to a heart disease. His mother, soon after, disappeared in the woods, according to the local folk from their small village, she went crazy because she couldn't accept the loss of her daughter.
When Piotr became eighteen years old, he decided he would study at the university to become a doctor. At the time, he didn't knew exactly what kind of doctor he wanted to be
,but with his good grades, he managed to move to the United States of America to study psychiatry in Harvard.
It was tough to keep up with the other students, for many times Piotr had to stay awake all night, trying to fight against the linguistic barrier, and persecution of not being from a local wealthy family. Time passed, and Piotr didn't score amazingly on finals, but he managed to become a psychiatrist, like he wanted to.
When his father was on his last days, he called Piotr, who went to Cabo Verde, where his father was hospitalized.
Viktor told him, with tears on his eyes, that he was sorry for being such a terrible father, and asked for forgiveness. Piotr said "Of course I forgive you" and with a chuckle on his throat his father awnsered"I'm glad you do, but you're too naive. There's no forgiveness for what I did."
His father passed away a few days after.
After years, of treating local patients, Piotr decided to join the Medecins Sans Frontieres initiative, and help whoever he could in dangerous zones.
He soon started to understand about the horrors of war his father talked about on his childhood. He went from places with viral outbreaks to the middle of war zones, trying to help as much people as he could.
He started to notice the hipocrisy of society, of how people turned away for all that suffering, and Piotr started to get more and more reckless with himself, jumping right into the most dangerous zones to help whoever he could and however he could. Because of such actions, Piotr started to get really paranoid, and a bit delusional, thinking people nearby him could be potential enemies, ready to kill the doctor who was there to help victims of war.
When he heard about the Chernarus crisis, he jumped right in, and in just a few weeks, Piotr was doing his work, saving lives.
But then, the outbreak happened, and everything changed. Fire rained from the skies, when planes bombed villages to try to contain the infection, husbands killed wives and neighbors killed neighbors, society turned into savagery, Shots could be heard on the entire street, and Piotr, with shame on his heart, and tears on his eyes, decided that for the first time in his life, he was allowed to be selfish, and hid himself under the floor of the house he was in, and waited until all the screams stopped, and all the gunshots ceased.
Now, Piotr, with shame on his heart, looks outside the house he hid, at the desolation Chernarus became, and wonders to himself, if that is real life, or if he is in purgatory or hell.
Piotr decided at that moment, that he would dedicate his life to do what is right, not what some twisted laws tell him to do, but what his heart, and his human nature tells him to.
Or se he thought.
Because, in fact, Piotr never was a doctor. In fact, Piotr was a sailor, working on a ship, carrying food and supplies to the land of Chernarus, who was suffering from war and famine.
But one does not chooses the illness he has, and with the civil war, and outbreak soon after, after many dangerous encounters be it with the living or the dead, Piotr without his pills, and with the stress of having to survive, his mind slowly started to create an idea, the idea that he was someone else, capable of dealing with the stress of living at the brink of human's doomfall.
