Gavrilov Yanovich served as a sergeant in the CDF following the resolution of the bloody civil war, in which Gavrilov served on the side of his country as a light armored vehicle crewman. Loyalty to his motherland and steadfast determination were the hallmarks of his military career thus far, earning him several accommodations. After a dubious friendly fire incident during a training event in 2014, Gavrilov fled with his wife and daughter into neighboring Takistan to avoid potential fallout from the incident. Gavrilov assumed the role of a local, applying his former skills as a service member to find work as a park ranger. In 2015, Gavrilov's wife left him, taking his daughter and moving back into Chernarus to move back into Elektrozavodsk in South Zagoria. She knew Gavrilov would be unable to return due to his suspect past. That bitch. Gavrilov feel into a deep depression, filling his empty heart with alcohol and prescription drug abuse.
After hearing of the developing events in Chernarus with the Russian military on July 7th, Gavrilov decided it was time to return to his home of Elektrozavodsk and try to find his daughter. He made his way back into the country through a former CDF contact and bribery, making his way to Chernarus on July 10th. Staying in a local hotel in Chernogorsk, Gavrilov awoke on the 11th with a terrible hangover and the road to Elektrozavodsk completely impassible by vehicle due to the volume of vehicles leaving Elektrozavodsk. Gavrilov made his way by foot to Elektrozavodsk, only to find it in a horrific state. Scavenging resources and applying his military training, Gavrilov spent the next week looking for his ex wife and daughter in the city amid riots and chaos, to no avail.
As the remnants of civilization disappear before his eyes, Gavrilov has only a fading hope that he might find his daughter, knowing full well that she has likely perished in the disaster. Being a man of action, he has dedicated himself to helping other survivors from all walks of life in order to prevent others from experiencing loss as he has. For love of his motherland, Gavrilov will also help to rebuild Chernarus and restore it to its former glory.
