Aydyn was born and raised in a town named Summerville, South Carolina to his father Aira, and his mother, who he never knew. His father was his only parent, as his mother died during child birth. His father was an avid hunter, and taught Aydyn how to handle a firearm, and how to hunt efficiently. Growing up Aydyn took an interest in software engineering, disappointing his father who wanted him join the family hunting trade.
For his 15th brithday, Aydyn's father took him on a trip to Russia, touring the country side and visiting Moscow along with Volgograd. During their visit in Volgograd, the first spits of infection started to turn up, people going insane. Attacking people. Aydyn's father took initiative and allieviated a gun from a Volgograd police officer, and took Aydyn into the Russian woods. Living off the land and making a camp. They didn't realize the severity of the infection until they visited a town in search of supplies. Only the dead had remained, not a soul in sight.
A year into their Russian Isolation, a passing trader told them of a place known as Chernarus, but failing to elaborate on anything past that. After arguing over if they should stay or leave, Aydyn's father overruled his son, and took them south. Upon arriving they were stopped and held up by a group of Bandits, who knocked out Aydyn's father and duct taped his hands and feet. They knocked out Aydyn and when he woke up, his father, their car, and all their weapons and food were gone. Aydyn had no idea what happened to his father, but he knew he had to try to find him.
Aydyn has been battling with depression, suicidal thoughts, self-harm, and social anxiety ever since his dad disappeared. He has since given up the search, presuming him dead. In order to cope with the loss of his dad and his mental state, Aydyn has turned into a chronic smoker, relying on cigarettes and weed to null his emotional distress. He has also turned to morphine and epinephrine in order to feel alive again. The use of drugs has only made him more depressed, thinking about how disappointed his father would be if he knew how heavily Aydyn uses, but it's the only coping mechanism Aydyn has left. When off Morphine for extended periods he becomes extremely irritable and unpredictable.
