Alexei Koslov grew up in Trotsk, a small town on the Russain border next to Lake Beloe, with his Chernarussian Mother (Alina) and Russian Father (Vladislav). His parents owned a dairy farm that overlooked the lake and from a young age Alexei was always outside enjoying the local environment of the forests and the lake.
When Alexei was 17 the civil war was raging in the country. Although his parents farm never saw any fighting, it didn't mean that it was exempt from the situation hitting the country. The war meant even more work had to be done to maintain the farm and its produce to the region. Alexei was forced to help out on the farm by his parents to keep them making a living, although the war wasn't necessarily seen in the region of the farm it could be heard in the distance. Alexei’s Mother would not allow him to leave the farm due to fear of what might happen and due to this restriction Alexei started to hate the work he was made to do.
As soon as the war ended in 2010, Alexei, being rebellious to his parents, left the farm to find other various jobs in the town. He spent time working at a local book shop until the summer of 2012 when he was fired by the shop's owner. Unemployed and out of money, Alexei moved back to his parents farm where he helped his father with the day to day work involved with a dairy farm.
Several months later in November 2012, Alexei watched the local news channel announcing that reforms had been made by their new President Lopotev. These reforms were the formation of the RAC (Republic Army of Chernarus). Taking a look at how his life had made a turn and only seeing a future of working as a farmer like his Father, Alexei did not hesitate and the next day went into town to the recruitment office.
After reading all the information available and seeing the wages that would be paid to its soldiers, Alexei signed his life away. After the last few years feeling more stable in the country under Lopetev’s rule, Alexei thought the chances of another war were non-existent. He would simply join this army, do several years and leave with new skills, friendships and a healthy bank balance.
Alexei completed his training and was sent to various parts of the country, from the hot Western border with Takistan to the frozen border with Russia. Things were fairly peaceful in the country and the job mainly consisted of just keeping watch and being prepared for anything. In 2016 everything changed, Lopotev was assassinated by a group of rebels that wanted the old ways restored. Alexei was deployed as part of the effort to maintain order of the country and stop rioters and any sign of rebellion. Eventually the situation started to die down and Alexei was stationed in South Zagoria. Over the next few years things went quiet for the RAC with fewer and fewer deployments to areas of the country.
Alexei was deployed around South Zagoria in 2019 as the flu pandemic hit the country and Chernarus was placed into a state of emergency. The job itself wasn't hard, mainly just patrolling quarantine zones and being posted to keep civil order in the region. With the Spring of 2020 riots started once again in the streets, Alexei now still finds himself a long way from his home still trying his best to maintain order in all this chaos that is the region of South Zagoria.
