Sasha was born in Grishino. Where his family had been there before Chernarus joined the USSR. Sasha grew up with a love for nature and spent most of his free time roaming the forests. As well as having an unnatural obsession with Bigfoot who he believed called these very woods home. His obsession led him to study biology at University where he graduated and continued to work as a forest conservationist. 3 years after graduating he met his wife Ingrid, who relocated to Chernarus to study a unique species of flowers only found in north west Chernarus from Denmark. They had 3 children, Oksana, Michael, and Lera. Sasha would take his kids to work to experience the lush wildlife of their home and would even let them come on his Bigfoot hunting trips despite Ingrid's disapproval.
It was on one of these trips that the outbreak happened. Sasha had sent his oldest, Lera to town to pick up supplies as they had been out in the Woods for roughly a week now. He had grown worried as it had taken her a lot longer then usual to get back. She returned to camp around twilight, disorientated and feverish. She babbled on about how men were turning against men and eating each other. She was attacked and managed to get away. With it being so late Sasha decided to wait till morning to take her back as it would be too dangerous to walk through the woods at night.
Then, early in the morning Sasha woke to his son screaming. Sasha busted out of his tent to see Lera bent over Michael, his entrails on the ground and a piece of large intestine in her mouth. His scream awoke Oksana who came out of her tent blurry eyed and confused as Lera pounced on her closing her Jaws around Oksanas Neck. Sasha did the only thing he could do, which was to grab the Shotgun he carried with him and killed Lera. He sat there cradling his two other children sobbing when they started to become aggresive. Sasha stabbed Michael at the base of his skull and stabbed Oksana through the eye. Sitting there covered in blood he walked back to his vehicle by the moonlight and drove home. Only to find no one there and the town burning and smoking with fire...
Now, Sasha focus's on rebuilding his life and trying to find a safe place to call home. As well due to his experience he is not afraid to put down any and all zombies he sees.
