Nasr Muratov was born in 1978 in the small village of Svergino, South-Zagoria, Chernarussian SFR, Soviet Union. He was born in a Tatar family, a minority Turkic-people living in Eastern-Europe and Central Asia. His father Alim Muratov, was a worker that worked in the steel factory in Chernogorsk. And his mother Dina Muratova worked as a nurse in a retirement home in Zelenogorsk. As many families in the Soviet Union, the Muratov family didn’t had much, but were happy. Nasr spend most of his days playing football with his friends and taking care of his chickens.
When Nasr was on primary school, the Soviet Union collapsed. The Chernarussian SFR became independent from the Soviet Union. Due to the fall of communism, many of the countries nationalized industries came to a halt. For months had Ibrahim Muratov stayed at home, not being able to work. It was a big change from communism to free market. After a while, the factory got taken over by a rich oligarch. Ibrahim got his job back and started to earn a decent living. Meanwhile the turbulent ‘90’s passed by, Nasr passed his high school diploma. In the late '90's Nasr starts doing an apprenticeship as a construction worker.
After completing his construction worker apprenticeship in 1998, he was conscripted into the Chernarussian Defence Force. He served as a communications engineer in the 313th Signal and Electronic Warfare Company at Tisy army base. In these years, minor civil unrest started. Protests and increasing foreign influences by both super powers, turned Chernarus into a political and social unrest. With the rise of nationalistic tendencies, more and more Tatar families left the north of South-Zagoria and headed to other places in Chernarus. Nasr completed his military service and found it difficult to find work. Most of the companies in north South-Zagoria were hesitant to hire people who were not member of the Chernarussian Communist Party, a party that had a lot of influence in South-Zagoria. After a while, Nasr found a job at the farmer market in Severograd. He became member of the National Party, a nationalist political party that wants to remove foreign influence from Chernarus. Like many Tatars, he voted for the party.
In 2009, the political and civil unrest came to a meltdown. The Chernarussian Movement of the Red Star (Chedaki), started an insurgency against the government. Full scale war broke out between various militias. Nasr joined the military arm of the National Party. As a bombmaker, he planned bomb attacks against Chedaki positions. Due to the many Tatars in the NAPA ranks, the Chedaki started cleansing towns in the north. Many were killed or removed from their homes. Houses were set on fire. The father of Nasr, Alim, got shot while he was trying to prevent his house from being looted by Chedaki forces.
After the US-led intervention in Chernarus, the Chedaki were stopped. Peace came back and everybody started rebuilding their houses. Scarred by the war, Nasr started studying English at the University of Novigrad. After two years he dropped out and started working as a hunter and guide. He accompies tourists from all over the world during their hunting holidays in Chernarus. His friend Petr had a restaurant and hotel at the Black Lake, he helped there when he could. Just before the outbreak, Nasr had a short-lived tv-show on public broadcaster ČERNA1 called 'Co je v nabídce?'. In this show Nasr visited countries in Europe to go and hunt and cook a typical local dish, with help of local chefs. This show was aired from 2010 till the outbreak started.
In October of 2014, Nasr delivered some deer meat at the local pub/bistro in Novaya Petrovka. A group of local men sat around the bar talking about a wounded guy that was found next to the road in a car. Post-war Chernarus was a peaceful place, so a man covered in blood that was found in a car was a very unusual. Nasr heard the story and was surprised, and started talking to the men. The men said that the man was attacked and bitten by a other person he offered a lift. Nasr started laughing and didn’t believe the men. He dropped of his goods and started driving back home. On the road he discovered a naked man covered in blood running on the road. Nasr honked and asked what on earth he was doing. The man turned around and jumped on the windshield of the car. Nasr was shocked and put the pedal to the floor. He threw some deer meat out of the car to distract the man. After the man ran towards the meat, nasr raced towards his house in Svergino.
Shocked after what happened on the road, Nasr started locking his house. He turned on the television and heard about the CDF being dispatched to the infected cities. Nasr was left confused and decided to go to bed. Late at night, he heard some noise outside. His cows were running around the field and were in panic. Nasr grabbed his shotgun and went outside. He saw three men running after his livestock. He screamed and shouted at them to stop. They weren’t responding. Nasr fired a warning shot. The men started running towards Nasr. Nasr had no other choice then to shoot the men. In shock he stood over the bodies of the men, looking at their face. Nasr felt sick and started to vomit. Unaware of what to do, he tried to phone the local police about the incident. Phone service was terminated and electricity became unreliable. Blackouts were frequent. He decided to evacuate his mother the next day.
In the early morning, Nasr rushed to the house of his mother. He got her in his car and drove to the port near Berezino. He managed to speak to his friend Hamid, a Russian fisherman. He asked If he could take his mother to Russia and sent her to family in the Tatarstan province. He agreed taking her and off they went. On the banks of the Green Sea, he looked at the boat sailing towards Russia. Nasr decided to return to his house and to get his stuff. He wanted to get to the Russian border before sunset. At home he packed his stuff and released his livestock into the wild. While packing his stuff into his car, he heard on the radio that all borders will be closed due to a protocol put in place by the government. Martial law is declared. He decides to move back home and starts barricading his house.
Month go by, and the infectious disease went around the country. Nasr is still not infected by the disease and thinks that some of the population is immune to the disease. How and what is unknown. He uses his skill as a hunter and farmer to stay alive. He wanders around the north of South Zagoria, trying to stay alive.
