Vasili Belinsky was born to a middle class family in miroslavl midway through the 1990s. He had a fairly normal childhood in which he attended school up through highschool. How ever, mid way through his college career, the infection broke out. Vasilis family went into hiding on the outskirts of miroslavl after the infection took over the city. While hiding out in an old abandoned farm building, Vasilis mother Anya Belinsky was killed while being held up for some of the families rations while Vasili and his father Petrov were out scavanging for more food and supplies essential to their survival. Upon returning to their encampment, Vasili and Petrov found Anya dead in the store room where they kept their supplies. The death of his wife drove Petrov to commit suicide, he joined his wife there in the store room after putting the gun into his mouth and pulling the trigger. Vasili, not having anything left to hold him to the encampment, decided it was time to enlist in the CDF, he simply wanted to help the people of Chenarus. He wanted to help prevent what happened to his family from happening to any other families. Vasili helped with the retaking of miroslavl before being sent to South Zagoria to help try and stabilize the region there.
