Aleksei was a member of the Politsiya (Russian Police). During the collapse and outbreak, he was out with other Politsiya members attepting to keep the peace and suppress the infection. When the outbreak got too bad, he broke ranks and attempted to go back and assist his family. Upon returning to his home where his family was boarded inside, he found the boards on the door and windows ripped off and his family gone. He had been searching for them for months, but to no avail. He has since began worrying more about survival in what world is left to this day, putting his badge away for good. Aleksei was an only child to his father Nikolai Devora and his Mother Nadia Devora. His father Nikolai was part of the Russian Spetsnaz, where he assisted in many operations throughout many operations. Aleksei was brought up with a strong understanding on how to survive and defend himself when needed, but to be quiet and carry himself well until that time arises. Aleksei's mother was a waitress at a local diner where Nikolai frequented and eventually formed a relationship with her. Aleksei is a kind man and very open to others, but the current situation has raised his walls quite a bit. Aleksei began making his way south towards the Green Sea as he kept hearing rumors and whispers that the outbreak isn't anywhere near as bad that way, which he has quickly found out to be a lie and strictly rumors. After a week of heading south Aleksei quickly found out how bad it was and decided to stop and try to assess the situation a bit further upon arriving in Chernarus. His plan was to eventually get to the Mediterranean Sea, hopefully find a boat and make it out to the Atlantic Ocean, where he could find somewhere uninfected or somewhere that has kept the infection contained.
