Proclus was born December 16 nineteen eighty-five, within the historically significant city of St. Petersburg. His father Branus was a Major in the 15th regiment of the Soviet Border guard, stationed in North Germany. This duty lead him to be absent for most of Proclus's formative years. Leaving his young son to be raised primarily by his Grandfather(Rynus) and his Mother Fyda. At age four Proclus was diagnosed as dyslexic causing a rift between him and the state education system. Being seen a defective failure, since he could not progress past his father and would be left out of the educated elite that he was expected to join. Cast down to factory work.
Following the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Branus moved the family to Moscow. Once in this new city, Branus was recruited by the newly formed KGB splinter the GRU(Russian Military Intelligence). This job provided the family stability during the great period of instability that they where living in. Protected from the criminal gangs and exploitation in the post-communist nation. Furthermore, Proclus was now educated in a private school that provided him with a quality education and lead him through his Primary and Secondary education to the well of higher education, allowing this unlikely candidate to progress to university level, all the while living in a proto-failed state.
Proclus returned to St. Petersburg to attend the prestigious Saint-Petersburg State University, achieving joint honours in history and archaeology, before progressing to complete his Masters in 'Military History of the Mid to Late Russian Empire'. After leaving university with a full Rolodex, Proclus travelled to the historical site of Ephesus in Turkey to assist in a dig and the reconstruction of that city. Following this and on the first night of his return to Russia, Proclus had dinner with his Father.
Durning the meal Branus questioned his son about how he would serve his national service, discussing different options. Being a lower senior official in the GRU; Branus explained to Proclus that he join him in serving the Motherland - this is what he wanted for his son as he could foresee the coming Chenyan War and the devastation that would come with it. Worrying greatly about the fate of his son if he were to be deployed to such a region as Soldier. The conversation was coming to a vodka driven drunken stutter-filled conclusion when the state of the Russian state came up, this saw Branus explaining to his son that there was a group that shared their outlook on the shortcomings of the Russian Federation. The 'RNU'.
Intrigued Proclus began to look into the group being turned off by the overt Neo-Naziism of the group, however, he did agree with overall aims of the group - in part. Especially the idea of the 'lost land'. Being a man of religion - he found religion whilst attending University- Proclus could not agree/ reconcile the Naziism, causing him to adopt a slightly negative view of the group and his father. What Proclus hated most was the fact that he agreed with so much yet it fell at the final hurdle - causing great frustration.
Despite the political disagreements with his father Proclus did follow his advise and was inducted into the GRU. At first, Proclus wanted to lead a team of Operatives, however, although he had the mental aptitude he lacked physically, having a weak build. This unassuming build did suit perfectly for him to be used as an intelligence officer. Which he took to quickly. Proclus over training Proclus did beef up and became proficient in self-defence, firearms and tactics - both military and intelligence gathering. Training was compleated just in time for assignment to Chechnya during the second war.
Following the war, Proclus was hardened, both mentally and physically. He was shaken by what he saw, the suffering and death - Proclus could not reconcile what had happened. Durning training he was taught to ignore the suffering, that; he could do, but what he could not do; was reconcile his part in the destruction. Because of this he and the agency mutually decided to sever ties.
He exited service just as the RNU was undergoing massive de-Nazification, his father informed the group about his lost son. This lead the RNU to approach a broken Proclus and convince him that joining the party was his duty as a good Russian. After reading their revised manifesto and seeing his objections removed, Proclus joined and became an active member within the political party, giving speeches about the 'sins' of the Russian administration and Putin himself, whilst highlighting the virtue of the RNU.
After the RNU was outlawed as a party Proclus was instrumental in helping hold it together and reforming of the RNU into an armed group. At the outbreak of the conflict in the Ukraine(Russia) Proclus marched across the border with RNU and his unit of loyal men (sized around 2 companies). Upon the capture and consolidation of the Crimea, Proclus was summed back to headquarters being informed that because of his good work he would not be going back to Ukraine but would be taking part in a new mission. He would be a senior assistant in the planned invasion of Chernareus.
