Oleksiy Petrov- Born to a father from Russia and a mother from Ukraine, (where the family had lived in Ukraine together). The family moved to Chernarus following the 2009 Civil War in order to take advantage of the recovering economy, thinking they could strike it rich. Oleksiy, was born in 1993 and is 24 years old in 2017, moving to Chernarus at 16. The family lived together in a nice apartment in Elektrozavodsk, with mother working in a grocery store, and father at one of the power plants running off the natural gas industry. When Oleksiy turned 22, he got an apartment in Staroye. At 23, applied to be a police officer, was recruited, and went through the academy. Oleksiy wanted to try to make a difference in the country, as he looked down upon the conflicts of the previous 2009 war and the ethnic strife. As a multiethnic (Russian-Ukrainian in Chernarus), he despised conflicts over such ethnicities, as, in his mind, they are so local to eachother that the difference is only in name. Despite this, Oleksiy is fiercly loyal to Chernarus, Ukraine, and Russia. Following his graduation and swearing in as an officer, he was assigned to the Staroye station, where he continued his field training with the veteran officers. Oleksiy, despite his family's best attempts, lived only modestly, not gaining mass amounts of wealth like the family hoped. Oleksiy never had a relationship, devoting himself to work or study, despite only performing averagely at university but well in the academy. As a result, his adult life was more that of a loner, where he derived most of his joy in dreaming about his career and the opportunities it may hold for his future.
