Ludek Nivek was born into the legendary Nivek clan of Chernarus, he was destined for many things, chief among them becoming the most talented linguist in all of Chernarus. He has dedicated his life to using his family's connections in Chernarus' street and their various international connections to collect first edition and limited edition dictionaries. In the course of this, he also developed a passion for collecting gasmasks after venturing into a highly irradiated area to retrieve a valuable dictionary said to have belonged to the legendary First Scribe, his idol. This is his most prized possession and he guards it closely.
The apocalypse has done little to stop his passion for dictionary collection, though mostly now he collects gas masks and funny hats that he likes, as getting out-of-country to retrieve rare tomes has proved too difficult, even for Ludek. However, recently he acquired a tip that the last ever work of the First Scribe was located on Deer Isle, so he has come to the island to locate and secure the tome, in an effort to complete his life's work.
