Sent to Syria in the special advisory role in 2011, Ivan and his team served the Assad regime to the best of their ability. After the intense urban combat and being an experienced combat medic of Aleppo, Ivan and his closest brothers decided to move to the private sector. Hearing of a potential new job with Legion Corporation they packed up and set out for an interview. Hired as a package deal (Ivan being the medical doctor), this group of men were given pseudo-autonomy within Legion Corporation. Referred to on the inside as the "Acquisitions Department", they served as the harsh right hand of Corporate. No names, no faces, no games was the slogan for these men. If Corporate needed a job done, they called acquisitions. With the current deployment of Legion nearing its end, Corporate wants to send fresh faces to research the potential weatherization of the virus. Hence why they have been deployed to the region. However with his own agenda Ivan wants to help the higher corp gain more intelligence on the virus and how it works, his mission was to retrieve blood samples and medical samples to test how the virus could be weaponized.
