Vasily - Vasya- Klopkin, born Bora Kirchuk, DOB 29th May, 1984 born in a coastal township of Komorovo.
Parents deceased in automobile crash, raised by aunt in Kozlovka, home schooled. Taught Russian and English by his aunt who renamed him Vasily Klopkin - a Distinctly Russian Sounding name. "You will get along better in the world like this", she said. Vasily spent his days working on her farm and logging.
Despite not having any experience in fire arms or anything warfare related, was able to get recruited by the Zagoria Zarmuteki, a resistance group operating out of Nadezhdino and signed on as part of their intelligence branch. Also members of the branch were 3 men, 2 young boys and a dog, to which Vasily later owed his life.
During the war, Vasily met Tatianna, who was a nurse for the insurgency. The two hit it off and married before the war was over. Sadly the marriage was not to last. Tatianna was shot and killed before the war could end. Despite the many casualties this war had brought, it never quite hit home with Vasily. It was always something happening to someone else. That was the turning point for him, and a major shift in his world view, becoming somewhat more introverted and self centered, less of a team player.
After the war and before the outbreak, Vasily found himself somewhat useless and struggled to find direction in life. With the insurgency no more, he ended up a common drug dealer.
But Vasily had big plans and big ideas. With the outbreak, he found that some commodities were rising in value and some services are going to be needed more than others in the times to come.
Vasily became determined establish his own little business in his home town of Komorovo, or whats left if it, but for this he would first need to find business associated who would share in his vision.
Vasily is in habit of bringing up preposterous business ideas that clearly wouldn't work due to the depopulation. Some would consider it a form of humor, some - a coping mechanism with the grim reality.
In recent years the ideological warrior within him has subsided and made way for a more mature, measured and kind-hearted person, despite sometimes playing along with the environment in fear for his life should he not repeat the party lines. Inside, Vasily is somewhat resigned and struggles with suicidal thoughts and struggles to understand where he fits in the world around him. These feelings are reinforced by being part of the the very nationalist insurgency and having done things he deeply regrets for causes he no longer believes in. He sees some of these causes, or causes in general as dangerous and follows the logic that his wife had died due to causes and ideological warfare.
Vasily sees little sense in dealing with "the old conflicts" but forced into such conflict is likely to side with his compatriots rather than foreigners or strangers, despite the fact that most foreigners he met after the outbreak were kind and helpful and not at all menacing or terrorist-like. On the other hand, it seems that with lawlessness cruelty is soon to follow, and many local gangs have resorted to banditry, threats, kidnapping, torture and mutilation. This does not sit well with Vasily and he keeps wondering how is it possible that only the terrible locals survived.
There are few things keeping Vasily among the living. One of them is the hope of finding a community to be a part of. Being alone is not an option in the long term as he lacks a full survivalist skill-set. Settling down and starting a family is also something he daydreams about often.
