Aleš Novotný was born on the 5th of July 2002 in Belozorsk. His parents, Alexei and Natálie, were first timer parents but were very excited to raise a child. They read all the books on raising a child, including the very popular "10 Things A Chernarussian Mother Should Know". From the moment he took his first step, his parents were watching his every move to make sure he didn't get hurt. He wasn't allowed to go outside to play because it was too dangerous, and he could get hurt. He wouldn't be allowed to play outside until he was five years old, and only then under the unwavering supervision of his parents. Aleš went to a private boarding school for boys at the age of 6, and would attend that school until he was 13. While in boarding school, Aleš could get away with a lot. He constantly goofed off in class on the days he didn't skip ("sickness", he claimed), snuck off campus to smoke cigarrettes with his friends, and was able to bum alcohol off of people to get drunk on the weekends. His grades were fine but not stellar, and when he was home his parents could tell something was wrong. However, of course, they believed boarding school would teach Aleš manners, and thus he stayed. During wartime, curriculum shifted into more technical and trade education, but Aleš still studied on his own. When the Chedaki won the war, Aleš was glad that Russia would come in to make things better. That's what they told him, anyway.
Aleš returned home at 13 in 2014 to attend a public secondary school. He loved his parents, of course, but what they didn't understand was that he is grown up, and he only got to see them on breaks. He was upset they wanted to do away with him every time school started. Aleš got away with a lot less when he was home. His parents were very observant and started to track his WatchPhone when he was out of the house. Aleš yearned for freedom and would constantly leave his phone at home to sneak out of the house and meet up with his friends. Aleš's recklessness caught up with him one night when he was on the way to the gas station to smoke cigarrettes with his friend. He was robbed at gunpoint, and had no phone with which to call the police. He sprinted back home and cried to his parents who, in a moment of clarity, were just glad that he was okay. He never got in trouble for sneaking out, and his parents started to loosen their grip over Aleš's life. The remainder of school finished normally, with Aleš graduating middle-of-the-pack. He was accepted into a university in Chernogorsk and moved there early to begin study. It wasn't long until Aleš slowly cut off his parents from his life. As sad and heartbroken as it made him, he felt betrayed by them causing him endless trauma in boarding school with illegal beating and psycological training he underwent. Unbenownst to them, Aleš was traumatised by boarding school. He never told them, and they never knew. He called them weekly, had them over once, and never again.
Aleš began studying computer science in Chernogorsk in August of 2018. It was there that he met his closest friend: Sydney. She worked at the corner store he got his groceries from. She'd become his only true friend in the coming months.
His first semester went flawlessly. He perfectly balanced schoolwork with his newfound passion: hiking. He'd finish his homework and walk the trails of the South Zagorian wilderness until sundown. He had a 4.0 GPA going into the second semester. However in February, he was told to stay home and begin doing lectures online due to the virus. Aleš knew the Frenzied Flu was serious, but didn't think much of it because the world had faced and overcame pandemics before. Not a big deal. The semester passed as normally as it could, and in June is when Aleš began to worry. People started to go mad and attack anything they could. This was clearly nothing the world had seen before. Aleš bought up as many groceries as he could afford with his stipend and planned to shelter in his home for the summer. He got along fine, video games, growing weed, Tinder flirting, and internet porn were to thank for that. He started his 3rd semester in August online, and struggled like he did previously to keep up online. It just wasn't his speed. Once the infection began to show signs of slowing, Aleš felt comfortable emerging to see the world once mroe. By November it was announced that the next semester would potentially be in-person, and he couldn't be happier. The first thing he did was go take the weekend at his favourite camping spot: Black Lake. The semester turned out to be online again, which was fine. It too passed as normally as it could until March.
The military patrolling was common these days, but now it was bad. Really bad. Aleš knew enough to understand that. By May, rumours of the military executing started to spread. Aleš believed that if he were to stay in his apartment it was only a matter of time until he fell victim. During a riot a few blocks away, Aleš packed a big bag of food, water, a tent, sleeping bag, etc and headed for Black Lake. He decided that it would be safer to live out there for a while given its relative seclusion. It was there that he stayed from the begining of May until June.
So there Aleš was: low on food and in need of friends. Some people he could relate with, be safe with, and roam with.
