Danya was born in the city of Primorsk to a middle class family, however they moved to Miroslavl to pursue new and better job opportunities such as his father being a technician for a local large power company, and his mother working as an assistant for a TV studio. Danya grew up as an average Chernarussian boy in Miroslavl, spending his free time watching television, or reading books, and would occasionally hang out with his friends. When the civil war happened, he was too young to realize the crisis, and knew he was safe where he was.
After finishing school, Danya had taken an interest in a career as a firefighter, and went through training fairly quickly, becoming a firefighter for the city of Miroslavl. However, as things deteriorated in the South Zagoria oblast, it affected the rest of the country, and soon the world. Danya was quickly conscripted into the Chernarussian Defense Force due to his basic firefighter training and knowledge, including the valuable basic medical aid he learned in training. Danya didn't want to join the military as he had heard the reports and stories from people who had been more up front with the infection, but knew he had to at least try to defend his family from the threat that grew bigger and closer everyday.
Danya was conscripted into the 12th conscript regiment attached to the mysterious 31st NBCP of the 93rd brigade, and was sent to South Zagoria with CDF transport.
In the name of freedom, equality and brotherhood of nations of the Fatherland, we swear to fight for the freedom and independence of the Republic of Chernarus.
