Viktor Azarov is a very caring and kind person, when it comes down to family and friends. Once you’ve gained his trust, he will always be there for you. although It takes quite a while to gain his trust, and only seconds to lose it. he might be kind to the people he knows, but he doesn’t care about strangers, and he can be quite rude and unfriendly to them. Especially if they are Russian. he grew up in Berezino with his father and younger brother named Markus. Viktor never really got to know his mother, she died when he was only 5 years old. His father never liked to talk about her, and always tried to change the subject when she came up. he told him she got very sick and couldn’t recover from the illness.
Viktor’s father had a really hard time after the loss of his wife, he got really depressed and eventually lost his job. After that, he had a really hard time recovering. He couldn’t find a job and was not able to pay the rent anymore. So we needed to move. Later his father found a little house in Kamenka. The rent was a lot cheaper but he still wasn’t able to afford it. So out of options he started dealing drugs. A week later he came home with a lot of heroin. Viktor never knew where he got the drugs from, the only thing he knew was that his father would leave the house every month in the middle of the night, and then he would return in the morning, tired and paranoid. He would hide the drugs and instantly fall asleep on the couch. Viktor didn’t like it one bit.
At the age of 16 Viktor’s father made him help with his job. he never liked the idea of his father dealing drugs, and he was always scared he would be caught. but he knew his father had no other option. But he never expected having to take part in it himself. Viktor immediately told his father he didn’t want to take part in it. But he didn’t take no for an answer. So Viktor had no choice. he and his father worked together for more than 2 years. Viktor hated nothing more than working for his father, he was very strict and he only had eyes for money and drugs. Viktor didn’t understand why his father had changed so much. until he later found out his father wasn’t only selling the drugs, but was also using them. His father needed more and more, so Viktor needed to work harder and harder. His father was very addicted. It didn’t take long, but after a while Viktor started using the drugs as well. Viktor his life had changed so much the last 2 years, he hated his life and his job, the only thing what would comfort him was heroine, and his younger brother Markus.
Viktor never really complained to anyone about his life, as he always kept all his feelings to himself. But then his brother turned 16, and his father wanted to make him work as well. Viktor couldn’t bear the thought of his brother going through the same thing as he did. He was scared and he didn’t want him to change like he and his father had. So he did something he never expected. He called the cops and told them everything about his father. Immediately he regretted what he had done. but It didn’t take long before the cops arrived at his house and arrested his father. His father looked very surprised when the cops came rushing in, bashing through his door. A week later he was sent to prison island, he never knew how the cops found out about him, Viktor never told him.
After that, Viktor and Markus had no place to stay anymore. So they moved to Zelenogorsk where their uncle lived. Their uncle was very kind and didn’t have a problem with Viktor and Markus moving in.
Viktor never told his uncle he was addicted to heroin. But he was still using it very often.
He kept a big hidden stash somewhere buried in the Forest, north of Kamenka. He would often walk all the way back to get some more heroin. Just so he could calm down. He could always see the prison from far away while making his way to the forest, and it always reminded him of his father. The thought of betraying his own father hunted him. Even though he didn’t like his father because he had changed so much the last few years, but he had always loved him on the inside. He would always feel depressed after walking back to his stash. Instantly he would take some heroine, It would always make him feel good, it always made him forget about all his problems, it would make him feel warm and happy. But when the drugs had worn off, he would always feel sad and depressed . And he began to feel isolated. Markus was always there for Viktor to support him with his addiction. And he would always try to comfort Viktor when he felt bad.
A few years later, when Viktor was sleeping his brother came running into his room. He looked scared and was breathing heavily. He instantly woke up by the sound of his brother bashing into his room. He sat up right and asked what was wrong. Apparently their uncle got very sick that night, and he had already turned. he heard sirens and screaming people outside. Viktor’s heart started beating very fast, but he told his brother to calm down. He slowly got out of his bed and walked to the door of his uncle’s bedroom. Markus told Viktor to be careful, and told him to not open the door. Viktor heard his uncle making weird grunting noises, he didn’t know what to do, so he told Markus to call the cops. Markus ran downstairs and started calling, but the lines were busy. Viktor looked outside the window and saw people running and panicking. He decided to turn on the radio and the TV to see what’s wrong. and he quickly found out wat was happening. his heart began to beat even faster, and he started to get very scared. He looked at his brother and told him to start barricading all the doors and windows, Viktor locked the room where his uncle was, and instantly he started running to gather all the weapons and food he could find. They stayed inside the house for over 2 weeks, barely eating or sleeping. Their food supply was running low but even worse, Viktor’s heroine supply was empty, and he started showing withdrawal symptoms. His legs and arms started aching very much. He started to get sick and started to become very paranoid. His brother Markus didn’t know what to do. So he decided to go to Kamenka, so he could find some more food and take some heroin to calm his brother down. As soon as the sun came up he walked up to his brother and said he would be back before nightfall. He left Viktor alone with some food and a rifle. Viktor knew that it would take a while before he would see his brother again so he tried to sleep. When Markus didn’t return that night he got very worried. But felt too sick to go out looking for him. He was sitting there for another 3 days before he was able to go out himself. Viktor grabbed all the stuff he could find and went out to Kamenka.
He started walking towards his hidden stash as fast as he could. Hoping to find his brother. His legs were shaking, and they could barely carry his weight, and often he would fall down to the ground, smacking his face into the dirt. While he was walking and struggling to get to his brother, he saw the prison again. And instantly he knew what he had done to his own father. Tears started rolling down his cheeks as he realised he properly had killed his own father. He didn’t want to go on anymore and felt like giving up, and just wanted to lie down and never wake up. But he knew he had no choice and kept on moving. As soon as he arrived he saw his stash was gone, and he started shouting for his brother, but nobody reacted. After hours of looking for his brother he fall down of exhaustion, And passed out.
The following morning he woke up, immediately the thought of his father and brother came up. Some tears started rolling over his cheeks again. Never in his life he had felt more unhappy then he was now. He felt like there was no hope left. After hours of thinking and sobbing he found a little bit of his courage back again. And he wasn’t about to give up. He was determined to find out what happened to his brother and where he was. So he kept on looking for him. Viktor always longed for some heroine again. besides his father and brother it was the only thing he could think of the first few months. He had a very hard time finding heroine after his stash was taken. And started to drink and smoke a lot more, developing a drinking problem. Viktor never found it easy to trust any strangers. so for a very long time he walked and stayed alone, hoping to find his brother. But with no success so far.
