Timur was born in Sochi, Russia in 1987. His father was a higher-up within a branch of the Russian mafia operated out of the various hotels that operated in the city populated with tourists. They would use the hotels cellars and basements as some of the various warehouses for narcotics and weapons that were then distributed throughout the country and Eastern Europe. Timur lived within one of these hotels with his family who were mostly protected from what the mob would do within the hotel.
When Timur had reached an older age and had learned of his fathers involvement in the mafia, he decided to follow in his fathers footsteps and in fathers footsteps even against his old mans wishes. He was assigned to run the contraband with his partner. He'd run for the mod for years, only doing other lower classed jobs that he was assigned to do. Even with his fathers reputation with this branch, he hadn't climbed in the ranks whatsoever. Then one day, he was forced to tie some loose ends that no one wanted to do. Him and a few others had went into a small hideout and wiped out the inhabitants swiftly and quietly.
After this event, he was tasked with more of these killings with continued success. After word had spread, he had gained the reputation he had wanted. He continued to run the narcotics with his partner while doing dirty work for the bosses. After a few years, him and his partner were tasked with securing a spot for some former IRA member to rest. After they had met the man, he opened a pub which had interested in using his pub as a front for a small arms business and had Timur and his partner ask if he would like to participate. He agreed and business flourished. Timur was assigned to stay and help run the business out in Chernarus, which he was initially against, but had come around as he had acquainted with the Irishman and other Chernarussian people in the area.
