Fedor was born in 1989 to Ekaterina and Pavel Stechkin. He was the eldest of 3 brothers, Egor and Ivan. Never proved to be much of a scholar but always excelled at physical activities. He was fascinated with martial arts as a child and started training sambo at the age of 7. His younger brother Ivan followed in his footsteps and started training with him when he became of age, unfortunately Egor was a bit of a black sheep in the family and never had a thing for sports. Eventually he grew rather jealous of the relationship Ivan and Fedor had. Egor involved himself with some sketchy individuals when he was a teenager and started working for the Russian Mafia. Fedor never approved of the path that Egor chose for himself which eventually led up to the two falling out. After Fedor finished high school and earned a diploma as an electrical engineer he was called in for military service half a year later. He proved to be a physically and mentally capable individual and was advised to pursue a career in the military by his superiors. After finishing the 2 years of mandatory military service he decided to enlist in the Airborne Troops where he again proved to be a capable soldier.
Soviet airborne troops are among the best-trained soldiers in the Russian armed forces.The training that they receive is physically rigorous and mentally demanding. It is conducted under conditions simulating actual combat, including extensive NBC training. Airborne training integrates special airborne techniques with basic motorized rifle tactics. During the six months of specialized training for the VDV, Fedor met with the rest of Viktor company that he would serve with in Chechnya, Ukraine, and now South Zagoria. After finishing the specialized training to become a certified badass Fedor was assigned to Viktor company aka "Krovavyye Sokoly". Under the command of Major Vyacheslav Mikhailov the "Sokoly" served together in the line of combat in Chechnya, Ukraine, and soon to be South Zagoria. Fedor saw combat for the first time in the Second Chechen war where he witnessed atrocities that the insurgents were capable of doing to his fellow fighters and civilians, the constant exposure to the brutality of the enemy eventually dulled his senses completely. He became a hardened fighter and proved to be a loyal friend in the war on the Crimean peninsula where he received an in-field promotion to the rank of Sergeant due to the valor and leadership skills shown in combat.
July 17th, Major Mikhailov briefed the company for their next mission in Chernarus. None of the men were ever on a mission like this one. With so many unkown factors it was going to be a new challenge for all the men in the 104th.
