Ran Ning Shu attended Anhui University after completing secondary school. In early 2017 his dad, a high level member of a large Chinese corporation, brought him along to Chernarus on a business trip. When tensions between Russia and Chernarus escalated, his father was flown out of the country. At this time Ran was touring the countryside and was scheduled to take the next available flight out, however he did not make it back to Miroslavl before the country was sealed. Since then he has been wandering the country, slowing making his way east.
