Aydar Karimov was born in 1996 at Ukoospilka Medical Care and Health Centre. His parents, Arzi and Natalya Karimov were both Crimean Tatars from the Sevestapol slums. Aydar spent his early life poor, like most of the people in the city. His father was a factory worker and his mother a store clerk. With the little amount of money they did make, they used to pay rent and buy food. His father did have a small hand in the city's Tatar led crime. It didn't do much to raise income, though. Aydar would spend his early life hustling in order to make ends meet and to support his family. As he grew older, jobs would come and go. When the outbreak finally hit close to home, Sevestapol would become choked by the dead. The cities' crowded streets would become far too unsafe for any sane person to want to stay. Realizing the urgency, Aydar would book transport to Chenarus, where according to his father, some old friends lived. Transport wouldn't come in the form of a comfortable train ticket though. Using some of his father's old connections to get a car ride through Russia, he drove south. Aydar would then make a detour into Takistan. After several guide switches and a short stay in Rasman, he would be brought to the Cherno-Takistan border. From there, Aydar met with the final guide on his journey, and he would be led up north to western Chernarus. Once arriving, the scene was far too chaotic for Aydar to continue along with the current plan. He would be forced to seek shelter out in the countryside. With time passing and resources becoming scarcer and scarcer, Aydar has decided to make the journey towards the coast to see what the situation is like.
