Anton is a born and bred Chernarussian; born, raised in Myshkino. During his compulsory military service he served in the Chernarussian military (CDF). Given the lack of opportunities in South Zagoria he decided to make a career of the military. He served for nineteen years in the CDF working his way up to a respectable rank of nadpraporcík (Senior Warrant Officer). Upon retirement, he moved back home to Myshkino with his estranged wife Tamara and their young daughter, Maya.
When the outbreak occurred his young wife and daughter both became infected but for some reason, unbeknownst to himself he did not. They became uncontrollable and not wanting to leave them but unable to stay he moved up into the hills North of Myshkino and set up camp which allows him to watch over them from a safe distance with his faithful hunting rifle. He can still be seen camping in the woods, protecting them from other survivors who may wish them harm.
