Lenka grew up in a small home in Novaya Petrovka with only her mother and three brothers. Most the people she spoke with spoke the Russian language, and formed a close knit group with the neighbors. In her youth, disagreements and arguments between Russians and Chernarussians started to arise, though they never quite struck close to her home. Eventually the boiling point reached, and the civil war broke out.
During those days, her house was mostly silent. Her brothers would be home during the day, and leave during the night. Sometimes, they came back with blood on their clothes. Those were quickly burnt and never brought up again. A disconnect was easily noticeable in her lack of acknowledgement in her brothers' activities, and how it kept their mother distraught and in panic. Despite the harsh times, they seemed the lucky ones. Their house was not attacked or stormed, no one came home injured, and no one came looking for them, even after the war had ended.
After her studies in school were complete, and a general lack of interest in any subject seized her, she eventually decided to study police work, and join the force in Chernogorsk as a K9 officer.
On her first month of training at the station, she was assigned a German Shepherd puppy to raise as her K9 officer. Unfortunately for her, the infection broke out, and with it the quick dismantlement of society. So, she grabbed her pup, put it in a bag, and tied the bag to her back, and struck out to the police station, hoping to find some of her fellow officers.
