Rob was a laborer in a company that was harvesting wood in Gorka. After he finished highschool he came into Chernarus from Slovakia to live with his uncle and aunt. It was easier to find a work here than in his homeland, since the war ended here and more workers were needed. When the outbreak started he tried to get away with his family. While driving an offroad car a deer jumped into the way. He did a common mistake by trying to avoid the collision and ended up crashing the car into a tree. During the crash he suffered a head trauma which knocked him out for a few hours. When he came back to himself, his uncle and aunt were gone. Without any idea of suffering from a psychiatric disorder he continued in his goal to leave the country. After a few interactions with people and observing them from a distance he decided to hide in the forests and avoid contact with other humans if possible.
