Jacoby Kavetsky was just like any other 17 year old Russian teenager, working on the farm with his father and attending school. Jacoby and his family lived on a small farm in the town of Sochi, near the border of Russia. When Jacoby was in school one day, his father had came and picked him up. Jacoby and his father rushed home to find his mother packing bags. Jacoby got his bag and they set off. They were heading to Jacoby's grandfather and grandmother's house in Kamensk, Chernarus. Jacoby's grandfather had asked them to come to take care watch out for them because of a new 'outbreak' that had been discovered. Jacoby and his family were able to make it into the area of Chernarus right before the borders were sealed off. After making it to Kamensk, Jacoby and his family stayed at the grandparent's house.
A little while after living at the house, Jacoby and his father went to search into the nearby town of Krasnoe for help. When they got to the edge of the town, the silence in the air was filled with gunfire. Jacoby's dad had been hit and his lifeless body had dropped to the ground. Jacoby ran back into Kamensk, not knowing if he had been followed or not. He made it just inside the city when he saw it. The gunmen had beat him home. He could see the front of the house. He saw 2 bodies on the ground. The gunman had the pistol held right to his grandmother's head, he exchanged one final look at her before she was killed. Jacoby hid in the nearby house until morning. Now, he's just tying to survive.
