Born to a notorious family known as the Shmopov Family in Novigrad, together they roamed Chernarus as a Carnival business. On their latest endeavor they were in South Zagoria around Guglovo. Since the outbreak Gregori has become enriched with power because of the weapons he has come into possession of.
Gregori has many brothers, enough to cause mayhem and make a name for themselves once again. They are currently trying to instate the Shmopov Regime. If anyone threatens their cause or one of the Shmopovs they will be condemned and marked for death by the family.
Their family rival the Volkovs have been their enemy for many generations as back then one committed a great crime against the Shmopovs. To this day they still have bad blood between them and get into violent interactions. Himself and his brothers are waiting for the right moment to take control of the region.
