Dzmitri was born in East Livonia on October 3rd, 1997. He was born to a Jewish family of farmers which included his mother and father, Dzmitri was an only child. He grew up like any other normal kid going to school in the big city then going home to help his mother and father on the farm, and occasional hunt. He also helped his father out with working on the occasional vehicle as he had many machines on the farm. He eventually became a man, going on hunts of his own within the forests surrounding the town.
While news of a rampant infection went around Dzmitri ignored the warning and went hunting regardless. Over a weekend of camping in the woods and tracking a bear he only came back from the hunt unsuccessful to find that everything he knew was gone. Bodies littered the streets while those who were already infected roamed them. He knew exactly what had happened and took to the woods where he was relatively unprepared. Due to his lack of preparation Dzmitri went hungry and thirsty since he used all of his supplies on the hunting trip he went on just before society collapsed. He had to resort to eating rodents, birds, pretty much everything he came across. He became quite crafty and resourceful, creating most of his tools and armor himself. Eventually he was on the brink of starvation and came across a deceased man who looked as if he died only a few hours before, and Dzmitri had to resort to cannibalism in order to survive another day. This effected Dzmitri's mental state and he became quite distraught and guilty.
He eventually decided to dedicate his time to helping others in small ways. Upon finding a camp he would place helpful items in their tents or barrels and every now and then he would even create a stash that he'd announce the co-ordinates to over the radio to help other survivors, since he did not want anyone else to go through with the same ordeal as he did.
