Born to the humble beginnings of a farming father and a mother who worked in the civil service, Ondrej had two sets of values instilled in him at an early age, self-reliance and service to your fellow man. He was also incredibly fortunate to have an educated mother that spoke three sets of languages, Russian, English & Chernarussian, two of which she passed on to her son, English and Russian. To that end, it was his ambition to become a teacher or a policeman, with life allowing him, in its own funny way, to become both, at least for a time. At the age of twenty he applied to join the Chernarussian Police Service and train to serve back in his home province of South Zagoria, however, his application was left shelved for some time, partly due to the fact that he was a half-breed, prompting him to put his skills in the English language to use instead. Taking up a part-time job at a school in Elektrozavodsk, as well as travelling around the province once a week to teach English to some of the surrounding south-eastern villagers, he quickly became a familiar and welcome face to young families in the south east. It was here, in these rural places, that he was first introduced to his sympathies towards the old nationalist movement slowly resurging in Chernarus.
As if by some twist of fate, the year before the initial outbreak reaching Chernarus, Ondrej's application to the police service was re-opened and reviewed, prompting his resignation from his teaching post and acceptance into the police training scheme. A year later, he was a fully uniformed officer serving in South Zagoria to assist in enforcing the initial quarantine restrictions. Less than a year later, he would consider resigning due to the violent treatment of a peaceful protester by uniformed riot police. Such notions were only reinforced by the behaviour of riot police during the third wave of infections.
After resigning, Ondrej kept mostly to himself and obeyed government orders to relocate. However, in the wake of their evident struggle against the infectious anarchy provided by the Frenzy Flu, he has taken it upon himself to slip out of their encampments and search for those who have turned their backs on the government, in order to fend for themselves or, worse, take advantage of the increasingly lawless situation in the region.
