Alexei was born on December 20th, 1989. The son of a Russian couple, Alexei’s parents worked long hours in the Novodmitrovsk factories in order to support their family. After the collapse of the Soviet Union and the formation of Chernarus into a republic things got worse before they got better. Crime and corruption became rampant within the government with officials looking to better themselves instead of the country. In order to support the family his mother took more hours in the factory and his father turned to poaching to put food on the table. Alexei eventually turned to begging on the street as well as pick pocketing people that were better off in life. Eventually his mother fell ill and because of lack of money she was unable to be treated. Weeks later she passed away, leaving behind a daughter, son, and father to grieve.
When Alexei turned eighteen he was caught stealing bread to feed his little sister. When turned over to the authorities he was offered an ultimatum ; serve in the C.D.F. and have his record be cleared or be sent to one of the most brutal prisons in all of Chernarus. This was due to the recent crack down in crime by government officials. Alexei ultimately chose the path of military service. Military life proved to be difficult due to the lack of discipline he had grown up with but eventually he was molded into a new man. Along with his service came more money to send home to his father and sister which helped them tremendously. In 2009 a terrorist attacked occurred in which a car bomb was detonated in the town square of Novomitrovsk, killing a large group of people including Alexei’s sister and father. As the conflict escalated Alexei’s unit was mobilized to fight the Chedaki, the fight was short-lived due to the intervention of the United States but several of his friends were killed in the fighting leaving him bitter.
When Alexei turned 21 he left the military in order to pursue a career within the Ministry of Interior as a police officer in Novomitrovsk. Being home gave Alexei a sense of sadness when patrolling the streets and then returning home to an empty apartment with his family gone. Eventually Alexei began to look for opportunities in different organisations and units such as OREL and COBR. He began to apply for training as a COBR operative and eventually was selected for screening and training. COBR training proved to be the hardest thing Alexei had ever attempted but he succeeded despite the large failure rate. As a COBR operative Alexei was chosen to perform raids on known Chedaki survivors from the war, giving him some sense of vengeance for the terrible things the Red Star Movement had done to his family.
Eventually he became known as a distinguished operative. In 2017 things began to escalate politically when a Russian-Chernarussian couple was attacked by far-right extremists. The fallout of the incident affected many northern towns and cities and eventually Alexei was deployed to protect government offices located in Severograd. With martial law in place things became even more hectic when the infection struck South Zagoria. Alexei and his team were reorganized and deployed elsewhere to help C.D.F. and M.V.C. forces.
