Following the conclusion of the war, Branko returned to his family farm to work as a laborer, and general handy man. It was a peaceful, if dreary life, but he was happy to be with his kin. His people were simple folk, and paid more attention to the seasons crops, than to the looming threat that was approaching. This would all change during the outbreak. Losing his parents in the chaos, and his youngest brother, Branko currently is searching desperately for the remainder of his family. Everywhere he goes, he sees his beloved homeland overrun with foreigners, and looters, teeming over the empty houses like vultures, and rats, and his thoughts grow grimmer, and grimmer. Like most Chernarussians, he is deeply patriotic, and sees this as nothing short of an invasion. Still, he keeps his peace, and is generally civil to these outsiders, perhaps biding his time, until he can group up with fellow natives. His priorities right now are to find his loved ones, indeed much of his mental wellbeing depends upon it. Only time will tell what will become of him.
