Sakke was born in Jyväskylä, into an educated family of Librarians. Both his father and mother were highly educated and sought after their sons training and schooling. He went through college and university at his time, and soon was conscripted into mandatory service in the struggling defense forces. At age of 19, as his service was over he thought on his choices. His parents pursued him to follow their foot steps and seek intellectual work, but he felt more at home doing things with his hands and body. Even when he decided against his parents to seek work at the constructions and wood clearings, his parents supported him. For a longer while, he was the hired-man for companies working. But soon, he decided to start his own woodcutting company, "SAK-LOG." He asked his old military friend to join him on his business venture and the company soon thrived.
After two decades of working, Sakke felt that there were more in the woods than met the eye, the tranquility of the woods and nature drew him in. He soon started to retrain himself on becoming a forest ranger in Finland, taking care of wildlife, untouched forests and protected areas. He still held his position in his company, even though he did the opposite that it did. He was called a hypocrite for this, but he just laughed it off. He did more good than bad, knowing both sides.
In 2016, Sakke and Pasi started planning a hunting trip abroad. To Chernarus. Finnish traveling agency had started to arrange trips to the recovering country as there were plenty of wildlife and it's own kind of nature. In March 2017 Pasi and Sakke boarded an commercial airlines which took them to Chernarussia. At the airport they were guided to the traveling agency's local HQ where they received their papers and equipment which they had mailed there earlier. Few days later a helicopter took the two friends and a guide to a field in middle of the forest. The helicopter was supposed to pick them up in July.
After great many experiences in the foreign country their trip was closing to an end. They had a cabin deep in the forest without any radios or electricity. Their guide had the only radio to contact the helicopter and it was kept off to conserve battery for informing the pickup or cases of emergency. They hiked back to the pickup location, pitched down a tent and waited for the helicopter to arrive. The guide tried contacting the company many times, but with no avail. After few days they started walking down to the nearest city to find out what is going on. On the outskirts they saw the burning city and heard the gunshots and screams carried by the wind. The guide wished the best of luck to the two friends and left in look for his own family and friends.
This disgruntled Sakke. He wanted home. He wanted back to the place he belonged into. From this, he started having arguments with Pasi. About what should they do and where should they go. They were not Finnish, out there. They were people who they didn't know. So why should they care. Pasi wanted to help people. Sakke wanted to head home. After longer while, they split up, Sakke heading up north to Russia.
He traveled long, met lots of people who were either suspicious or straightforwardly hostile to the Finnish old man. But he just didn't seem to get any closer to Finland. Soon after, regret returned. That he had abandoned his good friend. But he kept on going forward, until eventually he just realized, that he was back where he had started. Southern zagoria.
What a shame.
