Growing up on the streets of New York Ronnie has learned the true meaning of survival. Losing his russian father on the eastern front of the second world war. Ronnie lived with his russian mom. She came to the U.S. after the war ended. She was a single mother working 2 jobs and to make ends meet. Ronnie was alone all the time and had little parental guidance. Having talked to his mother about his dad Ronnie learned he was from Chernarus. He also learned how good of a man his father was and how he always loved his counrty. Even laying down his life for it. A few days after this conversation Ronnie wasn't picked up after soccer practice and had to walk home. When he got home he notice his mom's things were gone and faced the harsh reality. He was abandoned at the age of 8. Having no other realitves Ronnie did whatever it took to survive the streets of New York. So Ronnie turned the life of crime. Respecting the law Ronnie stole and mugged whoever came into his path to put food on his table. At the age of 70 Ronnie has been in retirement for 5 years now. Wanting to learn more about his father and his side of the family Ronnie and his wife Stephanie decided to move to Chernarus. Not only because of Ronnie's father but because of the wild life and natural scenery. As the events started to unfold throughout the world including in Chernarus Ronnie and his wife never payed attention. While buying groceries one day Ronnie and Stephanie were told to go home and lock their door by the local police. Right as the police officer was finishing his sentence all hell broke loose. A infected tore the officer's flesh right off his neck and went after Stephanie. Ronnie sadly watched in horror as his wife became a meal for a infected. In a fit of sadness and rage Ronnie killed the infected and left the grocerry store heading into the once lovely town of Elektrozavodsk which was now a breeding ground for the undead.
