Tiberious was born in Ukraine in the early 80's. His birth name was Yuri Mengsk, and was born into extreme poverty. When he was only 1, his parents died. He was then sponsored by a christian organization to receive special funding via a charity that got toddlers fostered by wealthier christian families in the west. He was adopted by the Eve family. They were, and extremely zealous christian following. They had all the members choose a biblical name when they came of age for communion, legally changing their names to suit what they thought was Gods will. Yuri chose his name as Tiberious, and decided that Gods plan for him was to assist the people of the world, by preparing them for the end of days. Through his twenties he setup several "Doomsday bunkers" for a few of the families in his diocese, and got a small organization going for charitable donations for dooms day prepping. Tiberious was a firm believer that only through Christ, could you be delivered to heaven. When the infection hit, Tiberious saw this as the sign of the apocalypse. He gathered what money as supplies he could, and smuggled himself into South Zagoria with the intent to learn, and see what was going on. His personal beleif was that the infection was the sign of the Rapture about to come, and he wanted to be near it, so he could be brought into gods Kingdom as soon as possible. The first few months passed, and God didn't bring him to heaven. Tiberious took this as a sign that God still had a plan from him.. Tiberious just needed to know what that plan was.
