Ivan was born in Charnaruss by a far-leftist family. He was drilled to believe that communism is the best option for the world and he firmly believes it. The Civil war only reinforced that idea and he soon joined the Chedaki in their fight for the right cause and joined a unit he now calls family. After the civil war, he kept his activity going, doing car bombs and drive by on political figures that openly disregarded the communist movement and denounced them. He was doing one of these things when a weird man rushed at him and bite him, figured it was a fascist Ivan did the only thing he deemed right and beat the man's skull to a pulp. He soon learned about the infection and figured the capitalists were the reason behind all of it and his fire for the cause was firmly re-ignited.
