Maksim is a young man about 19 years old, he was born in Minsk, Belarus along with his 2 brothers, Yarik, and Artyom. Maksim and his brothers both worked on the family farm along with their father. Due to taxes on agricultural goods, Maksim's father thought it would be best to move his family to Chernarus, and start anew. Maksim's father, Igor was called to arms during the Civil war in 2009, leaving Maksim, who was 10 years old at the time, and his 2 brothers to tend the farm alone until their fathers return. Sadly their father was killed. Killed swiftly, with a bullet through his heart. Tears shed, and years passed, it was now nearing the end of April, 2017. Tensions were starting to arise within Chernarus yet again protests broke out, political demonstrations and successions. Many citizens of Chernarus migrated west but, Maksim and his family stayed. One week after patient zero was discovered, on the 21st of July Maksim's town was overwhelmed by the infected, troops from the UN tried to hold them off but ultimately failed. Maksim and his brothers, fought the infected with everything they had, trying to protect their mother, and the farm. Sadly Maksim's brother Yarik was the first to fall, brutally mauled by the infected in front of their very eyes. Second his bother Artyom, and soon after his mother was gone. In an effort to save her son, Maksim's mother Katya sacrificed herself for her son Maksim's safety. Days passed and Maksim had been hiding in his fathers old farm truck for days with out food or water. He started to go insane, he had nobody, nothing. After being in the truck for over a week he started to hear voices in his head, there was one in particular who was "trying" to help Maksim, and he was known to Maksim as Lucifer. Lucifer had made Maksim do terrible things unthinkable to any other human, on the first day Maksim left the truck to venture out into the aftermath, he killed a man. Now remember Maksim hasn't eaten in over a week and the voice in his head "Lucifer" has basically taken over Maksim, Maksim listened to his every word because despite just being some voice in his head, Lucifer was the only thing he had close to a friend left in this world. Lucfier cackling, had told Maksim to devour this human he had just killed, and without a second thought he started ripping the mans body apart eating it bit by bit. Lucifer seeks to bring pain to those who fall victim to his act.
Maksim has a slight Russian accent, and tends to keep to himself. He has little experience with weapon, and the only experience he has is when he would go hunting with his father Igor. He has gone crazy due to the monster in his head, and tends to push everyone away, unless he deems them as useful for the betterment of himself. Maksim can usually be found roaming the woods day or night constantly talking to himself.
