Dima Gorovnik was born in 1989 into a middle class family in the quaint town of Pulkovo in South Zagoria. He had an older brother Luka, who was more aggressive than Dima, and also had a younger sister named Zora. Zora was born a mute, unable to speak. Dima and his family learned CSL (Chernarussian Sign Language) as to be able to speak to his sister. At the age of 12, Dima joined the CDF Cadets, learning some level of discipline and structure. During his time there, he learned how to operate CDF equipment and first aid. He left the cadets at aged 17.
He went through school and enjoyed his time there, not for the education, but for the people. Dima thrived when with people, relying on them to pull inspiration from for him to talk about or rip on. In 2009 Dima decided to help his nation in its time of peril, and he enlisted with the CDF. Dima was placed into the 3rd Light Infantry. After a year of brutal fighting, the war had ended. Dima had earned a promotion during the conflict, being promoted to Desatnik. However, a few short weeks after the war, Dima left the CDF.
Once the Civil War was ended and he had left the CDF, Dima set out on his own, determined to find his own path. In 2012 when Dima was 20, he decided to invest all of his savings into stock's and holdings in companies. He went on playing the stock game for the next 5 years, going up and down with his balance, but able to use it as his full time job. He had acquired himself a nice apartment in Chernogorsk, wearing suits and fine clothes as a day to day for him.
Dima had finally gotten use to a life of luxury, not needing to work every day like the others around him, he was able to spend about 3-4 hours working, then he would be able to do as he pleased. It was at this time in his life Dima met a woman he thought he would spend the rest of his life with. Her name was Helena Novotny, during their 3 years together, Dima and Helena had gotten into a deep relationship. At the 2015 New Years party Dima held in his apartment, Helena told him the news, she was pregnant. Dima was overjoyed by this news, almost crying with happiness. Luckily for Dima, he was already planning to propose to her in the new year, but now he couldn't wait. He dropped onto one knee and popped the question, and she said yes. The next 9 months had Dima running all over. He was looking at houses and good places for them to raise their child, whilst also balancing his business at the same time, but he didn't care, he was happy.
On the 12th of April, 2015, Dima and Helena were driving back from Helena's Parents house in Belozersk. The drive was going smoothly until the rain started to come down with such force, it made it incredibly hard to see the road. They were driving around a bend when a truck swerved out infront of them. In a ditch effort, Dima swerved the car to the right, dodging the truck but smashing through the railing and sending the car tumbling down the side of the mountain. Thankfully, Dima survived the crash, but to his horror, Helena had not. This lead Dima down a dark path, taking to drink and drugs to cope with his loss. He was a broken man.
Unable to move on from his grief, Dima's stakes in the stock market quickly fell to pieces once left unattended. After months of living off what he had saved for the future he and Helena had planned, Dima was out of cash, and options, he would have to re enter working life. Dima found himself a job as a lumber jack at the Berenzino Lumber Firm, chopping down the large pine trees around the area of Berezino, clearing way and gathering timber for Berezino's future expansion.
During the outbreak in the first few days Dima met a woman named Anastasia. She was a mute girl who was trying to locate her friends who had come to Chernarus a few days before for a meet up. Dima opted to stay with Anastasia and help her locate her friends. After a week or so of searching, Dima was able to get Anastasia to her friends with the help of a man named Thomas Kruger, who guided them on the correct path to their small camp in a remote area. At first, Dima was sceptical about going there, in his mind he thought once he got Anastasia to the camp, she would thank him then send him on his was, luckily for him, this did not happen. Dima and Anastasia were greeted at the gates by a man named Chris, whom Ana already knew via the internet. Dima, Anastasia and Thomas went in. As the four of them sat down, a fifth man appeared named Marcus, who had already befriended Chris and was also staying at the camp. The five of them chatted for a long while, during this time, Dima's craving became at an all time high. He was not use to being off cocaine for so long, and knew that he would need to take some more before it got too bad.
He brushed himself off and stood up, he looked to Marcus and asked him if there was anywhere he could piss around here. Marcus gestured him towards the toilet, and Dima went in. Once inside, he locked the door and got out the small amount of cocaine he had on him. He immediately began to use it, snorting 2 lines before forcing himself to stop, knowing he only had enough for about 3 more days on him if he rationed it and could fight off the craving. He wiped off his nose to clear if of any residue, then placed the bag back into his pocket and came back out to the camp, where he re-joined the others in conversation.
A day or so passed. Dima, Marcus and Chris found themselves at the United Nations camp in the Apartment complexes north of Chernogorsk. They sat down and were chatting with a few of the soldier there. The soldiers at the time seemed demoralised and defeated. Dima and Chris enquired as to what was going on, and the soldier gave them a vague answer about the camp being moved. About 15 or so minutes later, a UN officer emerged to call a briefing, soldiers and civilians were all expected to come to this briefing if they were at the camp at the time. A UN doctor emerged and informed everyone on what she knows so far, and her theories as to what the Virus was. This lead to more questions than answers at the camp. After the medical part of the briefing was concluded, Dima asked about the Atomic blast they had seen a few days prior. The UN soldiers informed them it was a strike on the NATO fleet in the green sea, but did not know by who or for what reason an Atomic device was used on it.
