Vlad Lupu is a Romanian born gunsmith that moved to Chernarus when he was 20.
All his life hes been involved in shady deals with local Romanian gangsters, mainly working for them as a gunsmith, at first just cleaning and reloading but afterwards actually repairing them as well.
When he was 20, the once local gang had grown so much, that they were looking at other countries to expand to. Chernarus was a ripe country fresh for picking after the war, so they decided they would send people over and organize a operation there. Vlad was a trusted ¨employee¨ of the gang , so he was sent along to help maintain weapons, etc.
Soon after the new gang arived, the riots started and the reports of canibals popped up.
They were holding up in a warehouse that they had bought dirt cheap, when some of them turned into those creatures. Chaos, mass panic and gunshots could be seen and heard from the warehouse, but no one really knows what happened there, as there were no living survivors.
Vlad was out shopping for supplies in the only car they had brought, and when he came back the only thing left in the warehouse was corpses and blood. He panicked and drove away, but stopped to refuel a few kilometers away, when he was robbed of all his belongings. He was spared, but with little chance of survival as he had nothing and no one. The bandits drove away in his car, screaming and laughing.
He swore he would do anything to survive, and set off on foot towards the nearest town.

The nearest town happened to be Cherno. Vlad was picking through houses, looking for anything he could find. After looting most of the town, he heard people in the police station and decided to check it out. Turns out the PD is fully operational and there were officers there. They were friendly , although they did make fun of his ethnicity. He traded a few cans of food for some ammo. They then took a blood test of him, and wrote him on a record they kept. This might be a problem later on...

Vlad has been looting the ruins of once prosperous soviet era towns for the past few days, making a few friends along the way. He met a pmc called Jake in the first day in Cherno, where they looted some military containers and found a great deal of ammo and supplies. On the third day the Duo traveled with the seaside on their right and found the town of Elektro, but they couldnt read russian so the name was a mistery. In the town they found a great deal of infected, and another actualy living beeing, who they were quickly forced to befriend as a military vehicle drove by carying soldiers and munitions. The vehicle had stopped at a gas station outside of town for refueling.
Gunshots could be heard almost as soon as the vehicle stopped , so the now Trio hightailed into the woods, only to stop when they found a barn in the woods to rest.
A herd of sheep was nearby , and were making their idle noises. It got on Jakes nerves, so he picked up his shot gun and point blank killed all of them, which might be a insight into things to come... While shooting animals is no big deal anymore, what stops him , or us for that matter, from turning on humans as well?
The Trio took refuge in a nearby barn, and ate their fill, discussing their past and futures. After a long talk ( which revealed the survivors name was Frank ) , a good meal and after the comfort of the campfire faded away, the three survivors called it a night.

The Trio split up in the morning, but decided to keep radio contact. Vlad decided to hang around Elektro for a while, sniping zombies from a rooftop.
As he realised his ammunition is running low, he decided to head back to the police station and talk to the officers, maybe strike a deal...
Vlad arived at the Police Station in Cherno only to find it abandoned and looted.. He picked through the armory and found a couple of boxes of the right ammo.
On the way out he managed to cut himself on some barbed wire, and was bleeding preety bad. He bandaged it as good as he could but seeing as he was running low on rags and bandages, he head out to the nearest hospital.
Vlad tried the front door, but it was locked, so he climbed to the roof. There he saw another survivor, down on the street, who almost immidiatly started heading into his direction. Vlad knew this was bad and started to panic.
The stranger offered him a bandage in exchange for him taking this weird green pill. Vlad agreed, bandaged himself, but threw the pill out of the window and ran for it. After a short chase, Vlad was surrounded by the stranger anda strangers friend demanding that he takes the pill. Realising what would happen if he refuses again, he decided to take it. Shortly after, the strangers left, and Vlad set out to the nearest water pump to make himself throw up, as the stranger said it would take one hour for the pill to take effect.
