Jaro was born in Miroslav, to his mother, who ran a clinic, and his father, a builder. His family was always proud of their country, and raised their son with pride. He attended school as normal, making friends, learning enough to get by. At around 12. He'd help his mother in the clinic when he could, and when he was 16, he helped his father with whatever he could in the building job that he had. His dad was a passionate hunter in his off time, so whenever he could, he'd take Jaro hunting, where Jaro would learn the basics of how to shoot a gun. During the start of the outbreak, his mother became trapped inside of her clinic, the first encounter that Jaro had was when him and his father were out hunting, they got back to the clinic and found his mother dead. From then on, they stayed in Miroslav, where they'd live until a tragedy happened. A terror attack inside of the city, with around 200 victims, in which his father would lose his life. The words of nationalists would reach his ears shortly after, as the foreigners were behind this, them being responsible for taking away the last thing he had. He decided he'd have something new that he loved, what was left of his country, and the fact he'd protect it going forward. He made his way to South Zagoria shortly after hearing a radio broadcast calling people to the cause of patriotism.
