Arseny was always in a bit of trouble. From an early age, he had already gotten himself into a lot of trouble and by 10, he was already a runner for one of the local gang. He always cared for his family but he was taught to never show emotions and to always remain professional, albeit still caring and putting family above anything else. By 12 he had already killed a few men, and it was only the beginning. He rose in ranks quickly and when he turned 17 some military contractors approached him. They had been keeping a close eye on him and seemed interested in some of his abilities, and offered opportunities to hone them. The price was simple: the heads of his crew. Although some may have considered them family, to Arseny, they were only his crew, nothing more. The decision was simple. Three days later he came back with all the heads. Ever since, he's been rolling around with his family. Sent to Syria in the special advisory role in 2011, Israil and his team served the Assad regime to the best of their ability. After the intense urban combat of Aleppo, Israil 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, 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 weaponization of the virus. Hence why they have been deployed to the region.
When he learned that his real little brother was deployed in Chernaruss with the Russian forces, Arseny had a second goal in mind after being deployed.
