He is a regular friendly man from Estonia even though the wild environment in Chernarus has changed him. He is not that friendly as he used to be. So you don't want to be enemy with this man. Mostly he is a friendly person but there are times where he needs to be tough. Before the outbreak he lived in Estonia and was studying to become a pilot. His past was actually really hard because his dad left him when he was 1 year old and his mother was a alcoholic. Despite living in a "crackhouse" he managed to come out of it. He knew he cant rely on his mom or his dad because they did not care about him. So he became independent when he was just 14. He found a job as a shop assistant, he worked 3 times a week. He often went to the woods and thought that he is alone and has to survive. He took many survival courses and became very good at it. When he turned 18 he started going to shooting range. Guns were his hobby. Every time he felt bored he went to shooting range. Range was like a second home for him. Probably he started going there is because he wanted to forget about his problems with his family. Eventually he became very good at shooting as well. When he finished high school he went to do his mandatory military service (In Estonia it is mandatory for every boy except if you wont pass medical Commission). He was there 11 months and after that he went to Estonian flight academy.
