My name is Leon Kowalski I'm 30 years old and was born in Danzig, Poland. I moved with my brother and parents to germany when i was just two years old and grew up in the ruhr area where we moved a lot. It was a tough time growing up there. I've always been the stubborn, tempered kid that got into fights and was bad in school. I never really knew what to do with my life and got into troubble alot, my older brother on the other hand knew to avoid that. He got good grades and stayed at home studying while I was out doing drugs and roaming through the streets. Yeah i know sounds like the typical contrast story but it really was like this and I hated him when I was young. Well unfortunetly at the age of 16 my parents died in a car accident and we had no relatives in germany. My brother was 20 at this time so he got to take care of me. It was hard at first but we managed to get along after a while and I tried to stay out of trouble and focus more on school. I managed to get my highschool degree and the first time in my life my brother had been proud of me. He also finished his apprenticeship at this time but had to move to a different city as he wanted to study at the University in Berlin. His goal was to keep working for the THW(Federal Agency for Technical Relief) in a higher position in the near future and I knew he was going to accomplish it. Me on the other hand....well I fell into my same old routine. I stayed in Duisburg and started an apprenticeship but got thrown out after a few months. This continued a few times and I couldn't really get anything done. Wrong friends and no plan of what I wanted to do. I had money problems and got into trouble again so I decided to move to berlin too and stay with my brother. Only condition was I had to get work and also join the THW. I wasn't happy with that but I had to get my life together. Everything went quite good so far, I got a decent job as a sales assistant and also worked for the THW as a volunteer, my life seemed to go up now. Then in late 2014 as we all know the disease started spreading from Chernarus. The THW was working with the United Nations to help maintain stability in Chernarus, my brothers role was to ensure airport traffic for supplies in northern Chernarus and he wanted me to accompany him. I don't know what got into me but I just couldn't go with him. I dont know if it was the fear of failure that I just could see myself managing such a situation. I just didn't think I was the right one to do this so the night before the flight I just left and drowned my fear in booze and drugs again. He left without me and I haven't seen or heard anything of him since then. When I heard that they gave up Chernarus and everything was overrun I just couldn't stand the pain. I never felt responsible for my actions, never felt real guilt but this time it was immense. I've let him go there alone, the only person I got left in my life that really cared about me and always tried to help me out, even though I didn't gave a shit. He always cared about others, wanted to save people and when he needed me just once to help him I've let him down. I couldn't stand this guild, I had to make him proud and do what had to be done. I had no idea how I was going to to this but I wanted to tackle the problem from it's core and decided to go to chernarus myself. It wasnt even easy to get here, all the surrounding countries had also been affected by the disease till then but I made it and now im here. Maybe I'll find him maybe I won't but I know for sure that I'm going to make a change here and make this place save again!
