Leos Pelan had a lovely childhood in Kirovograd. His father was the owner of one of the big factories in the city producing furniture. He was a rich kid with nothing to worry about. However, he doesn't know any of it anymore. Leos Pelan is nothing but a ghost of the past that a few people might know. After the infection hit and the town fell, multiple factions took over. The Kirovograd Slave traders took however they could. If you were weak and alone you would fall to their will. And so did Leos. And since then himself and everyone around him knew him as Pluto. Drugged, beat, used for labor, he became nothing but a headless machine, working without thoughts, feelings or hope that one day he will get out.
But maybe there is something up there, as one day, he was moving some generators from a distant neighborhood when an unknown force attacked the slave owners. Bullets flew, grenades were thrown, he just ran away and never looked back. Luck has it he escaped without getting shot.
