OPERATION OCELOT

Name: Vasili Petrovski

D.O.B: 05/02/1968

Hometown: Saint-Peterburg, Russia

Bio: Born during the silent days of the Cold War, Vasili Petrovski had a very short childhood. Not having the education nor the funds to pursue his dream of becoming an auto-mechanic, Vasili joined the Russian Army. Vasili's grit was tested on the harsh terrains of Afghanistan during the Russian invasion in 1990. His vast knowledge of navigation and his fieldcraft skills made him a very sought after asset in his platoon. This earned him the role of pointman during many operations. After having been tested on the battlefield many times, his skills and experience earned him a place in the 45th Detached Recon Batallion. This meant many classified operations around the globe. Working in small detachments of 4-6 soldiers, Vasili was used to the life of solitude.

When the outbreak came, Vasili was far from civilization; working on a weeklong operation to reconoiteur and seize a cargo plane presumed to carry illegal weapons. What no one could have expected happened. The plane never landed. It simply crashed -- in the treeline, maybe a klik out from the airfield. The detachment packed up their observation post, and made quick work of the 3 kilometer march ahead of them. Expecting mangled lifeless bodies, blazing fueselage and debris everywhere; the det. got what they wanted. Except only one body was found.. The pilot in his cockpit, lifeless with a self-inflected gunshot wound to the skull. The weapons were scattered around, untouched, with not a soul to be found.

"Perhaps the pilot was alone, and his linkup waiting for him at the airfield!" one young corporal insisted.

"No." Vasili replied.

"The pilot wouldn't end his life like this. Something is not right here Plekanov.."

That's when they saw one for the first time. Still smoking from the crash, both arms dismembered.

"Blyat! How is the guy still alive!?" Plekanov whispered, clearly startled by what he was seeing. The closer it came, the more they realized they were not dealing with an ordinary casualty.

"He is missing half his skull for fuck's sake!" Plekanov insisted, with a hint of fear in his voice.

Shot fired. Hit.

"He is missing all of his skull now" Vasili grunted, clearly unmarked by what he had just seen.

"We need to contact niner NOW." Vasili barked, pointing at Medvedev, the det. radio operator.

"Yes Sergeant Petrovski! What do I tell him Sergeant!"

"We need emergency extraction at grid Yankee Romeo ZERO NINER SIX FOUR, EIGHT NINER THREE THREE. Do you copy Medvedev?"

"Roger Sergeant, Yankee Romeo ZERO NINER SIX FOUR, EIGHT NINER THREE THREE!"

Medvedev pushes down on the pressure switch on his AN PRC 152 radio.

"SIX NINER, SIX NINER THIS IS SIX ONE ALPHA, SIX ONE ALPHA, Message, Message over."

Medvedev pauses and tries again.

"Nothing but squelch Sergeant, I'm not receiving anything.."

*6 days later*

Alone and seperated from perhaps the last remaining member of his detachment, Vasili is not only fighting against the cold, but now these rabid, mindless shells that used to be humans.

((Hi, this is just a short bio. Throwing things around. I don't know if I'll ever play on the server, but for now since I have time to waste waiting for the whitelist application to be opened again, I'll keep this going. I might donate, but I'm not donating for something I have no idea if I will like! I'm an oldschool RPer from the days of The Specialists RP, WoWRP, GTA: SA RP and now DAYZ hopefully. Hope to get a chance to try this out soon!))

//Just saying that the Soviets forces left Afghanistan in February 1989. The Soviet involvement lasted from December 24, 1979 to February 15, 1989. And Soviets pretty much began their plans for exiting Afghanistan in 1985. So I don't know whatever the Soviet leadership would have actually sent more soldiers to Afghanistan after 1985. So I fail to see that how he would have managed to be deployed in Afghanistan and actually do some heavy fighting.

To be honest I'm seeing a clear ex sample of "Super-Soldier-Ninja-Space-Marine-Double-Triple-Secret Agent." here.

((No, no. I wrote it up at work on a notepad, should have researched it a bit more. I'm in the army myself so trying to use some of my knowledge into my character. I'm in a recon platoon myself, so playing the character would just feel natural. Recon does not = fighting. So that's your bad there. If you're firing shots on a mission, you're either compromised or you have a HVT. I'll make the corrections when I have time and add some more.))

Can't have too many Super-Soldier-Ninja-Space-Marine-Double-Triple-Secret Agent anyway! I'm sure he will fit the role perfectly, just like anyone else who wish to be one! :)


Nice read Vasili Petrovski, definitely not a disapointing 'first' post from a new member. Keep it up. :)

To be honest if you're telling me that this server is just full of, "Super-Soldier-Ninja-Space-Marine-Double-Triple-Secret Agents", I'm not too sure it's what I'm looking for. Gives me two choices. Switch to a more uncommon character; or prove you wrong through roleplay.

Either or, I won't know till applications open up again.

I had another character on my mind, yet without having a feel for the server, I don't know if it would work out.

A Jewish entrepreneur, a little like Saul Goodman in Breaking Bad, but post-apocalypse style. Mordecai Goldstein AKA Mort, makes money off of people's misery. He owns a pawn shop in "X" and hires goons to keep things in stock, and to keep him safe. I was thinking of putting his shop near a coastal city, to compete with any vendors in places like Stary etc. Currency being scarce, barter and trade would be the main source of revenue for Mort.

You guys can tell me if this sort of idea would work out. I know I'd have to work on getting my stock by myself at first, but the idea behind it is getting deadbeat survivors to come in looking for food, medical supplies, a place to sleep/safety, in exchange, they would scavenge for me, or trade things I would need to keep the shop running. Let me know what you think.

// Few Russian recon units did some fighting in Chechen wars and I don't think every mission of their included HVT or either being compromised. And then Russian recon units being deployed all over the world sounds bit strange since the better part of Russian Federations existence they have had inner conflicts. Saying that they are classified is just a one way to avoid writing more.

Then again Russian military is a bit different than Canadian one, starting with Russian Armed Forces being conscription based. Which was was 24 months until 2007 for all men 18 to 27. So the Soviet involvement would have been pretty much in the point when no more troops would have been sent there, especially not new conscripts. So there is actually no choice unless you meet some legal reasons for not being able to join or you simply avoid the drafts. And what I've heard and read the Russian army is not a fun place to be.

Well at least he has a background. That's a huge difference compared to rest of the server, it just needs bit more work an detail.

And the Super-Soldier-Ninja-Space-Marine-Double-Triple-Secret Agent is used to refer to most of the generic soldiers there are and it is actually more of a joke. But there are many military background characters that are so generic that it makes people annoyed.
