Lexel Kotov, a self proclaimed communist from Greece and a farmer whose father took up arms for the communist party during the greek civil war of 1946. His father was exiled to the Soviet Union after the greek civil war was won by the nationalists. After the collapse of the USSR he found himself in the newly founded nation of Chernarus. He himself took part in another civil war; the Chernarus civil war of 2006.
Despite being part of the defeated side, he was granted amnesty from the goverment and was allowed to remain in Chernarus. He decided to rebuild his life as a farmer in the small village of Nadezhdino. Yet his life would change forever when he heard that the citizens of Kamensk had been taken by the goverment. He later joined the military at Balota Airfield in order to be conscripted. Lexel was deployed at the military base of Tisy. However, his unit was forced to withdrew inside the military airfield near Vybor. The base was eventually overrun and Lexel's unit was completely destroyed. He now strives to survive the apocalypse, always, fearful for his life.
His sole objective now is to survive the apocalypse. He set up a small farm in order to cultivate plants, but his farm was raided and destroyed. Now he roams the country of Chernarus and whether he sets up a new a new farm or becomes a scavanger is yet to be seen. He is also good at following orders and he prefers a sedentary lifestyle without violence. However, the recent ourbreak forced him to find a gun in order to defend himself from anyone who would harm him.
As an atheist he despises those who claim that the outbreak is God's punishment for our human sins and will not get along with anyone who believes in a higher being. Such ideas stem from his father whose fate is unkown. Lexel believes his father to be dead and has no other relatives.
