Антон Палацци (Anton Palatstsi) is an early twenties former citizen of Chernarus. Born to a small, poor family in South Zagoria he wished to have no part in the internal strife of the country. He cautiously watched as he felt his home becoming less and less safe with the international clashes and civil infighting. On the 10th of July he watched planes fly and bombs fall as explosions rang out on the border, and he and his family fled to the woods to the family's small cabin in the western forests of Chernarus to avoid being caught in the middle of the possible fighting.
Listening to the ongoings of their homeland via radio they listened to horrifying reports of the walking dead attacking people, evacuations, and bombings. They were sheltered from all of this in their cabin, the family having moral dilemmas on what to do. Suicide? Go and try to help people? Flee? But first thing was first, they were running out of supplies. Eventually the radio communications ceased and Anton and his father decided to hike down from the hills and see what had become of civilization for themselves. Almost immediately they came across a group of burnt, crispy corpses from the bombings that still drudged on. Having never seen anything like this before, they froze, and Anton's father was set upon by the dead as he watched paralyzed with fear. He ran as fast as he could back to the cabin, only to find the door open wide and no trace of his mother or sister.
Since that day he has become a hardened, quiet, survivalist type. With what knowledge he had of the land before the infection he camped in the woods, sleeping under piles of leaves and eating plants to survive, still too terrified from the experience with his father to attempt going to civilization. Yet to encounter another living person, he has certainly suffered some psychological damage and still doesn't really have any idea as to what happened in Chernarus. His only assumption is that this is Armageddon and that God has forsaken humanity to die of their own sins
