Thomas Rentov was born in 1983. He grew up in Toronto, Canada, studying Culinary Arts at Humber College. After learning how to cook Indian cultural food, he decided to move to Chernarus to learn it's cultural foods, and how to cook them. Unfortunately, this unfortunately was shortly before the outbreak happened. During the outbreak, he migrated to the forest north of Svetlojarsk. He used his culinary skills and a plant identification book to survive off the land, sleeping under branches and leaves, in the middle of the isolated forest. This drove him somewhat insane. He was used to being around people. but in the dense Chernorussian forest? There was no one. It was soon after he found himself going insane, walking in circles, not one living human being in sight. He began to believe he was the lord of a fictional kingdom called the Boles Empire. He began calling himself Lord Tackernackel, of Tabernackel Hold. He believes that Devil's Castle is Tabernackel Hold.
