Syreyne Oganiov was born in Chernogorsk hospital as Vladimir Oganiov. Coming out early in life in her small town resulted in severe bullying and death threats from the more conservative christian members of the community.
Seeking a better life for their child, her parents immigrated to Canada around her 12th birthday. Growing up on the canadian west coast, while not perfect, allowed Syreyne to flourish and excel in schooling and life, however her family's limited financial means made life difficult.
Their time among the poorer elements of society left Syreyne with a desire to learn how best to assist those in the most desperate need.
Lacking the means to afford the education required to become a doctor, and wishing to continue her education as well as serve the country that had allowed her to live in relative safety, Syreyne enlisted in the canadian military as a combat medic.
Serving two tours in Afghanistan, she received experience in treating everything from battle wounds to toothaches, dealing with both the gruesome aftermath of viscious guerilla skirmishes as well as the more mundane tasks involved in assisting the civilian population as a peacekeeper.
As her second tour came to an end, she received word from family who still remained in Chernarus of the rapidly devolving situation, and opted to take some personal time before re-enlisting to return to her homeland and hopefully make a difference, while also learning more of her heritage.
This was the last time her family heard from her, and to this day they light a candle every night praying to hear from their angel of mercy...
