Anatolij Arkadijovich Kalininchenko was born in Moscow, Russia. His family attempted to grow during the troubling times of the Russian Federation trying to grow through the fall of the Soviet Union. His family was very poor and his mother was the only one to work an "actual" job. His father was a member of the Bratva and he would bring home an okay amount of money to keep there family fed and healthy, but it was in no way a stable job nor was it something that any in the family thought was going to be something that was going to keep them all together in the future. Anatolij, or as most people called him, Arkady, went through school until it was time for primary school as his family didnt have enough money to send him through, nor did Arkady even want to go. What Arkday wanted to do was to follow in his fathers footsteps and join the Bratva.
Arkady's path into the bratva wasnt something tht was easy nor was it something that he found beneficial to the Bratva themselves nor did he enjoy the work. They asked him to go around to the little towns and cities around the outskirts and oversee the "things" they would send out or have come into the city. His work sent him to Kandalaksha, a small town located in the Murmansk, Oblast. Cold as hell that place is. Looking back on it, that was the place that got him ready for the work he was to do in the future. While there in Kandalaksha he met a man named Svyatopolk Bogdanovich Bezukladnikov, or Bourbon as most called him. Bourbon found himself in the same business that Arkady was in but he was much older and Arkady looked up to him slightly. Arkady actually found Bourbon in Nyheim federal prison, a place where Arkady was sent to drop off some drugs to the fellow Bratva members in the prison.
Bourbon ended up telling Arkady about some place he was going to head to called "Nyheim" in the fuck off north of Norway. Arkady, being the business man he is, and drug addict, thought this would be the perfect opportunity to start his own thing somewhere else away from the watchful eye of the people already in the Bratva who he grew to despise. He took Bourbon up on his offer and off they went to Nyheim.
