Antyom Denzkov was born in a peaceful time in the South Zagorian, Chernarus was thriving at the time under Soviet rule. This changed very quickly, the soviet union fell and soon the South Zagorian peoples needed work. Antyom's own father turned to selling drugs, his mother was forced into prostitution. These desperate times called for very desperate measures. As a child he learned that no one is to be trusted especially the capitalist that had come to his home land and taken his families money and happiness. Then came the Red Star Movement, a return to the communist roots of his homeland how could he resist. He signed up at age 17. He served under Finley Snowden, and quickly showed his worth as a medic, and as a scout. He was happy with this new movement then, the capitalists came. The destruction of his homeland, but this was not all, after suffering many defeats and losing many comrades, that's when the infection came. Antyom now roams these lands looking to restore South Zagoria and restore it's glory.
