Born in 2001 to a loving family in Severograd, he was only eight years old when the bloody civil war took place in his country. He temporarily moved to a small town called Kamensk, just north of Severograd, when his father went to join the CHDkZ revolutionaries. Unfortunately, his father didn't come back in one piece. He was the victim of an airstrike that left his legs permanently crippled. Andrei eventually returned to Severograd when the war ended, and remained there until he turned 16. He left his hometown to backpack around South Zagoria with some buddies from his school for a birthday trip about 4 months before the outbreak. He was in the small town of Myshkino in July of 2017 staying with a distant cousin, just before the infection began in earnest. He weathered the beginning well, since the town had few residents to begin with. One by one, his old friends died off from one cause or another until Andrei was all alone. He's wandered his home country without any goal up until the present day.
