Born in Miroslavl' to a Russian mother and Chernarussian father, Natalie never found herself being able to fit in with others at school. Preferring the company of herself over others her free time would be spent exploring abandoned buildings, drinking or sat in a quiet corner with a book.
After finishing school she had a myriad of jobs. Never settling down until she found employment at City Library No.1 in Miroslavl'.
When shit hit the fan she was at work. Soldiers in the streets were evacuating people towards the city centre but she managed to slip away. Heading out of the city towards her home. Upon arrival the streets were eerily quiet and the house was empty. She struggled to decide what to do before a car pulled up outside. Inside was her best friend and her best friends boyfriend. She quickly hopped in as the sounds of gunfire erupted from the direction of the city. They drove in the opposite direction. Natalie frantically trying to contact her parents as the car headed north east, towards South Zagoria.
