Captain Luka Kratochvil is a CDF Infantry officer who was assigned to the 22nd Mechanised Infantry 'Svarog' Regiment, of whom was assigned along with his unit to the Balota Garrison within South Zagoria. Luka is both a veteran of the 2009 Civil war - in which he was serving as a Lieutenant - and furthermore as one of the few surviving CDF commissioned officers after the chaos of the initial outbreak. Luka was born in Gvozdno to a reasonably well off military family - his father, Mikhail Kratochvil, eventually served to become a Colonel within the 2nd Mechanised Infantry. Luka, and his older brother Eric would graduate school with ample grades to enlist in the CDF - following in their father's footsteps. Luka would eventually pass as an infantry officer, whereas Eric would graduate into the airforce as a flight lieutenant, piloting helicopters. Luka graduated a few years before the beginning of the 2009 incident - and spent much of his time doing his best to protect his men, and praying his family would be okay. Luka would fight in and survive the 2009 Civil War, and go on to become a Captain of the 2nd Company of the 22nd Mechanised Infantry where he would maintain himself in frequent stoicism before the outbreak in 2017.
