Kolya is a 23-year-old Chernarussian/Russian who continues to live in his devastated homeland of Chernarus. Having deserted from the army during the collapse of the country, he has found himself wandering without purpose. He is a soldier without a cause. But to him, that's just fine. Having met some friends over the course of his travels from his previous life and current, Kolya finds that the simplicity of surviving day by day is the perfect life for him. Spending that with his fellow man whether they be from his homeland or not doesn't matter much, it's only that they're willing to make the best of what they got in front of them. Considering they've got the burnt out husk of a former Soviet state previously plagued with civil war and now a Zombie Apocalypse means that whoever Kolya travels with must be exploding with optimism or has become so apathetic to the ways of the world that death has been rendered down to nothing more than a casual daily occurrence.
