Kazimir was born to a relatively poor family, his father owning his own failing business, a mechanic shop, his mother passing not long after he was born to complications. Kazimir helped his father around the shop during his young age, and during his teen years got involved in more illicit activities. His father completely disapproved of his involvement with such groups and through a few unsteady years their relationship ended in a blow out, Kazimir's father effectively disowning him.
Eventually his "Business" ventures lead him to Nyheim to capitalize on the political unrest in the region. After the infection hit he was forced to moved into the city to seek refuge, but he intended to make his own living there doing what he did best.
