A former truck driver named Vladyslav Kolisnychenko, whose IQ is normally below average, but he has his moments of brilliance, randomly figuring out a slightly more complex plan, than you'd expect.
He is 32 years old, looking to find a new life purpose in Chernarus, not far from where he originally worked. He lost his wife and job to the apocalyptic events and had to leave his completely destroyed home town Koryalov. Five years before that, he was happily driving his truck from town to town, delivering pretty much anything, even illegal.
Vladyslav had a friend Kirill at work, which got an opportunity to leave Koryalov for a better paying position in Chernarus. Kirill took that opportunity and left Vladyslav behind. Vladyslav remembered him when he was forced to leave and traveled to Chernarus trying to find him. Sadly, when he arrived, he found out that Kirill is already dead. From now on, his goal is to find out how his friend died and find a place where he belongs.
As his driving skills alone won't keep him alive anymore, he would become a good friend of anyone who makes his survival easier. He will try to fix vehicles and get to drive them often, as its his passion and his safe place.
He isn't the best listener or talker and prefers smaller groups to get used to. He loves talking about stupid things and pop culture, but hates when people are trying to be smartasses. He also never had a really close friend and for that reason it's hard for him to open up to people he doesn't know well yet. He's had some experience with guns before, even shot a pistol while drunk before.
He was never a good cook though and doesn't know what to do with a dead animal, so he'll have to salvage most of his food or find someone who will either provide for him or teach him.
