Vasily was born in Sevastopol, Ukraine in 1981. As a young lad he joined the army but soon got dishonorably discharged for stealing supplies. After the army he joined a security company and worked as a security guard. As the money was not enough he got into the scam and robbery business. Selling stolen electronics and cars, then escalating to selling guns and ammunition. He got in contact with one of his old army friends who told him about something weird happening in Chernarus, telling him it's a potential gold mine. They made a deal that they smuggle him in and out of Chernarus, that he brings back anything valuable and then split the profits. He hid inside a big box inside a truck and got over the border. It was going fine and dandy until he realized how bad the situation actually is. He tried to go back to Ukraine only to find out Chernarus was completely quarantined and his army friends were nowhere to be found. After a while he heard rumors of the infection spreading to Ukraine and saw no reason to try and go back. Since then he became a scavenger and a trader, trying to survive.
