Havel was born in the small town south of Sinistok known as Vavilovo. He was born into a family consisting of his mother, Ivona Blazek, his father Anton Blazek as well as his older brother Josef Blazek. Havel's parents owned and operated a farm in the town which had been passed down for generation to generation within the Blazek family. The Blazek family had suffered many losses during the civil war in the early 1990's, including Havels older brother who was killed in the fighting near Novigrad. The death of the oldest son, took its toll on the family, in particular Havels mother, Ivona. Seeing how his mother was destroyed emotionally at the loss of her son angered the young Havel, he wanted to see the bastards who did this to her pay. At 18, Havel enlisted in the Chernarussian Defense Force. Shortly after completing basic training, he was sent to help defend the southern region of South Zagoria. He was stationed at the airfield near the city of Balota and was tasked with helping to repel the ChDKZ along side the forces of the USMC. Have's father, Anton was killed around this time for being a supporter of the CDF by the ChDKZ. Upon hearing this news while stationed near Msta before the assault on a ChDKZ stronghold, Havel quickly became an empty man, void of all compassion for people. He had now lost two members of his family to the ChDKZ scum that plagued his country. During the assault on Msta, Havel was wounded after taking a gun shot to his right shoulder, he was quickly taken care of by Corpsman attached to the USMC. The corpsman saving his life gave him a huge respect for the marines and how they helped save his life. After the confilct of 2009, continued to server for a few more years before retiring to his home of Vavilovo where he worked on restoring the family farm along side his mother.
After news of the infection began to break, Havel's only priority was protecting his mother and keeping her safe. As the news of the infection getting worse and worse began to spread across the news, Havel began fortifying the family farm in order to better protect his mother and the life they live. One day while out scavenging for supplies to put up a new section of fencing, his mother was taken from the farm and a ransom note was left pinned by a knife to the table. The note written in english read,
"You're to bring food and water and what ever else you think we may want to the castle near bogatyrka if you want your mother returned safely."
Upon reading the note, Havel weighed his options between either taking the easy way out, and handing over all of the supplies he spent the last week gathering, or taking her back by force. After several minutes of thinking, he decided what he had to do. He went out to the shed where he stored all of his CDF gear. He dusted off the old vest and rifle and headed out to save Ivona. Once he reached the castle how ever, the bandits who had taken his mother lay dead. How ever, his mother was no where to be found. Upon seeing this, Havel made it his mission to find his mother and punish any foreigner in his country that would harm a chernarussian or even consider it.
