Lived a hard-working and unforgiving lonely life as a metal worker in a local factory in Russia. Never cared too much for other people's problems. He was raised fairly though and that has kept him an honorable man - a trait that has probably kept him alive for the past few years in Chernarus. Had a long run with his dog Mazzeltov which died about half a year ago. It was the only true friend he ever had and ever trusted. Now he prefers to live solo, keeping away from other people's problems and motives.
