Isaac Tarcape is a normal Finn. Quiet, trustworthy and quick to help others. He had always seen peace keeping the best way to help people in need, rather than giving some amounts of money to charity. During his youth the conflicts rising around the world in Middle east, Africa and area of the Green sea sparked his interest in a military career. As he grew older and the conflicts all around the world escalated, his will to help others grew even more towards the idea of helping others at ground zero.
In 2013 he came to age of 19 and as the standard conscription order came in, he applied to FRDF. Soon after the test and evaluations were done, he was ordered to step into service in January, 2014, within the Jägerbattalion. After the first few months in service he got selected with many other promising soldiers to receive an officer training, within Forward observing branch. During his conscription, tensions rose as Russia Annexed Crimea and started a proxy war within Ukraine's border. This was something to cause little bit of dislike towards Russian army, not the Russian population itself.
After the Conscription ended at the end of 2014, he applied into a peacekeeping rotation, and got accepted into next batch of peace keepers sent into Lebanon in first quarter of 2015, under the UN command. The conflict in this area had died down, except a few hotheads shooting from time to time and some sightings of terrorists near the border of Syria. During his time there he learned more of use of radios and mortar practices with the multinational forces. After a 12 month cycle, he got pulled back to Finland to rest.
About three months after the change of rotation from Lebanon, he got restless and did a direct apply into the operation that had sparked his interest in peacekeeping. NATO-CFOR. For five months he waiter for a response from the peace keep recruitment with no avail, until one morning he got a call and invitation to the rotation training for SOC (stands for "Suomen Osasto Chernaruksessa" or Finnish Unit in Chernarus) upcoming in few months, where he would receive training on new radio equipment and the NATO way of doing things, before being shipped out to Chernarus in January of 2017. Soon after he was merged with NATO forces and set up inside a command vehicle with his radio skills at the western side of Chernarus, near Kirivograd at base "Kozlov".
When the outbreak struck Isaac was stationed with MNBG-West holding out the western front with the CDF troops, and keeping up the remnants of frail and shattered communication network to his best extent.
