Boris Yuriev is a tall, bearded and mild-mannered man who originally hails from Svetlojarsk. As a young man, he always wanted to move to the big city instead of living in a sleepy fishing village. This annoyed his father greatly, because he wanted his son be a fisherman just like him, his father and his father before that. Boris ended up moving to Chernogorsk after getting offered a job as a dockworker by a recruiter at the Svetlojarsk harbor. He took the boat down to Chernogorsk the day he got the job. The Chernogorsk harbor was almost completely ran by smugglers and crimelords, and Boris did a lot of odd jobs for these organizations to make some extra money. After he heard news of the outbreak he tried to get in his car and drive all the way to Svetlojarsk to get his friends and family, only to be told to turn back at the city limits by armed forces.A couple of days later, he saw an opportunity to leave the city when people started rioting and looting. After driving many hours time he reached Elektrozavodsk, only to be ambushed by highwaymen. They took his car and all his supplies, leaving him only with the clothes on his back. His original plan of finding his friends and family has long since then been discarded, but in his travels he hopes to find individuals who are intrested in rebuilding civilization and start anew.
