Emil Arturovich Cernik, now known as Marak Kalan, born the middle child of 5 brothers at the end of the Soviet Union, is a former enlisted man in the Chernarussian Defense Force who has assumed the identity of a CDF officer by the name of Marak Kalan.
Before the Infection:
Emil was born into a collapsing Soviet Union, and a newly formed independent Chernarussian State. His father was a lifelong sailor aboard a cargo ship, and his mother worked day-in and day-out in a textile mill. This lead to Emil and his brothers being raised by their eldest brother, Ujarak. Eventually, however, Ujarak was forced to take up work at the dockyards of Primorsk. It was in the dockyards that Ujarak was tragically killed in a freak factory accident. Emil's brothers then looked to him to take care of them, which he did until he turned 17 when he lied about his age and enlisted in the military. Only a few months later the Movement of the Red Star began, and Emil was deployed to liberate South Zagoria from the Chedaki.
