Ceslav was born and raised in Sinistok, the only child of Zvonka and Ratomir. As he grew older he helped maintain and tend to the farmland that his parents owned that surrounded the village. However, when civil war broke out his father was murdered by insurgents and his responsibilities shifted from schooling to full time work on the farm.As Ceslav grew older, his mothers health rapidly deteriorated and she died soon after he turned 16.
He worked on what was now his farm for years until the infection had begun. Ceslav was reluctant to abandon his farm, and he took up arms against the infected. When he lost his home he had nowhere to go and was slowly starving out in the wilderness. After wandering and watching over his old city he saw a man which he would soon find out is one of the leaders of Kamenici. Aleksei took Ceslav under his wing and taught him how to survive. With time he learned how to fight and eventually joined Kamenici in battles against remnants of chedaki and entitled foreigners.
