Meet Vasya Bombastic, a 26-year-old engineer with a hobby of survival and guns. His weird last name is a result of his father who legally changed his last name to "Bombastic" for unknown reason, which Vasya inherited. He was sent by his company to Chernarus a week before the outbreak. As the company had a new factory being built there somewhere near Novigrad, Vasya was sent to overview the construction and to make sure everything went as planned. In the first week of the infection, nothing much happened where Vasya worked and lived as the infection started in the city itself. It was only after he saw several workers going away to the city, never to return, and the start of the bombing he knew something was seriously wrong. But because of all the chaos, it was impossible for him to get out of Chernarus in time. Now, stuck near Novigrad with nowhere to go, Vasya uses his knowledge of his hobby to survive in the now infected lands of Chernarus. He stayed near the factory site with the others until a rogue group attacked the job site for resources. Vasya survived with one co-worker deeper into Chernarus. After a month, following a trail of a potentional survivor camp they got attacked as the camp was a lie, a trap so bandits could ambush the survivors. Vasya lost his co-worker and his faith in humans and lived alone ever since. However, after a year and many setbacks, Vasya realized he couldn't survive on his own and set out to find other survivors. As it happens he heard someone talking who left his radio on, a guy named "Dusty", who talked about the Pagans and they wanted to recruit. Vasya showed hinself and asked if he could join. Although he isn't a member of the Pagans he lives with them as a "hangaround". Vasya hopes to earn their trust and prove himself to them to perhaps become a full member, but for now he is happy to live with a group of people instead of on his own.
