Arek was born in Warsaw, but the majority of his childhood he had spended on Podlachia's country, from where his family came from. There, because of his grandpa, he found interest in military and survival types of activity. He also joined local scout team. When he ended school he moved back to Warsaw to study at university. At the beginning of June he decided to come to Chernarus with his friends from prepers group for a survival skills course. They wanted to spend a month, complitly beyond civilization in deep, unspoilt forests near Dolina. Because of that, they didn't know anything about spreading infection, until large-scale military operations beguns. They decided to break their plans and try to come back to Poland. Since all borders has been closed and there is no any public services like trasport, or embassy, they are trapped in Chernarus now.
