Born in Gorka raised in Gorka to parents from Gorka, he's a small town guy. Wandering the wastes of Chernarus with his cousin Cyril looking to survive and meet others. His journey has been long and difficult but he knows hope of survival can only be won with cooperation of the masses. He was born in Gorka to his parents also born and raised in Gorka; his father worked in the police force and his mother was a house cleaner. They lived comfortably until the virus broke out and his father was called for the national defense and his mother was bit soon after the outbreak reached Gorka leaving him to fend for himself. In true Gopnik spirit he gathered light beer, cigarettes and track suit and wandered outward into the crumbling nation he called home.
