Born in Dubrovka of a poor family he was youngest sibling of the group of four. Alexander the oldest with Sven and Clarice afterwards. He worked around the house when he was younger listening to his older siblings till they joined the CDF and there was only his sister around most of the time. Mikoli avoids talking about when the Chedaki attacked his town when he was young for good reasons. Their parents were killed along with other things just as bad the civil war. His oldest brother Alexander made sure Mikoli was able to get a education. He got through community college till he decided to join the CDF. He felt that since the CDF tried to help protect his country and family from the Chedaki he felt obligated to help them. He feels the CDF is a extension of his family since Alexander is part of it plus being around Alexnader's cdf friends. He sees Alexander as a role model. Wished to make him proud by joining the CDF. Alexander protected the country and wants to do the same. His second oldest brother did the same and joined the CDF before he did. He joined the 76th mechanized infantry battalion, 3rd company, 2nd platoon, 2st squad with his brother that is a captain in the battalion after his training as a rifleman and became a corporal after a year. He only was going to be part of the CDF for a few years till he felt he paid them back for what they did and help pay for the rest of his education. With a better education, he was hoping maybe he help support his family with a better life. However, things went downhill shortly after. He was stationed at Miroslavl but moved to Chernogorsk as reinforcements to assist evacuations and to protect the city.
