Filip was born in Kirovograd in 1965, and had a rather peaceful childhood. When he reached age of maturity he was caught up with the raiders. Filip was part of the raiders for a long time while dealing with somewhat shady business, such as drug dealing, torture and general criminal activity. During the hit of the infection Filip escaped the city to learn more about what was going on, and lived in Miroslavl for a while, isolating himself from the rest of the community and the raiders.
