Alexi Petrov was one of the first musicians to originate from Chernarus. In 2010 at the age of 15, Alexei started to make small beats and rhythms. Slowly he moved on to full songs and even started to sing over his beats. He gained popularity on YouTube in 2013 and by 2016, he had over 3 million subscribers and was recognised around Chernarus and beyond as a respected beatmaker. It was around this time that his address was leaked online, and his mother opted to move the family out to Severograd in order to protect Alexei. He continued to make beats, but used a VPN at all times and began to go out less, to try and hide his face. He did a web interview in early 2017, stating "Everything I do, I do for free. I've wanted nothing less but to contribute to the music industry, and change somebody's day. People shouldn't have to pay to enjoy themselves".
The outbreak occurred while his mother was away at her job in Sinistok. Try as his father might, he was killed by infected as soon as they broke through his boarded-up front door. Alexei hid in his closet, and per his father's instructions didn't move until it was silent. He peeked out of the closet door over a day later, and checked around his house. He found blood, but no bodies.
In the time between the outbreak and today, Alexei hasn't strayed too far from home. He grabbed his father's pistol he found on the kitchen floor, next to the blood, and wandered outside. He hasn't found much besides a backpack and various weapons alongside the bodies of dead soldiers. He journeyed to Sinistok once but never found his mother. Currently he lives outside of Lopatino, trying to survive by subsistence farming. He no longer fears the infected, nor does he fear other survivors. If he dies, he dies. He has not much to live for these days, anyways.
