Whong-Cheng was born in 1996, north of Novigrad, west Chernarus, to a poor farming family, his mother would clean the house and raise Whong-Cheng when his father, Sao-Cheng would work the farm. His parents raised him in strong belief of Communism. When Whong-Cheng became a teenageer, his mother would fall ill to a terrible disease, and shortly after she would die. Alone with his father in the world, his father took it upon himself to raise Whong-Cheng. When Whong-Cheng became of the age of joining the military, his father kept him from doing so, because he wanted him to stay on the farm and work. Out of protest Whong-Cheng, secretly began working in the local school as a school teacher, when his father found out he got so angry that he would get a stroke and die in the bed shortly after. Whong-Cheng decided to keep the farmstead and used his skills to provide for himself, but devoted what spare time he had to keep working in the school. After a few years passing, Whong-Cheng would begin to think highly of himself and his new found knowledge about the world. He invented a new type of religion of Communism called ''Whongcism'' which he would start teaching to the younglings graduating in school, after a few years his supporters had grown so large in that small community, that the majority was all followers of Whongcism.
2017 an uprising had occured in eastern Chernarus. at first it was thought to be a civil war going on, as Whong-Cheng believed that his ''Whongcism'' had spread further beyond from his small village, so he began to believe that the ''civil war'' was of his doing, that the people was rioting in his name and Whongcism, so his own ego around himself had increased magnificialy. Then eight months after, his people would get attacked, starting with outskirts farmsteads where only a small amount of the population lived. Whong-Cheng awoke in his house to screams, his people began to attack each other, killing each other. And he then realized that it was an infection, a couple of days later the population of his village was annihilated, and Whong-Cheng with his hired General, were the only people thought to be alive. Whong-Cheng then decided to travel east in search of people to liberate them from their torments.
