  1. The story begins with our protagonist Bernard Rumyantsev-Zadunaisky ‘s Great Grandfather Pyotr Rumyantsev-Zadunaisky in the year of our Lord 1917. Following the October revolution Count Rumyantsev-Zadunaisky - whos lands consisted of numerous estates dotted around the region of South Zagadia, granted to him Dejour from time immemorial and upheld by the consent of the Emperor and Autocrat of All the Russias, Moscow, Kiev, Vladimir, Novgorod; Tsar of Kazan etc. - felt that the increasing prominence of the Bolshevik party in the region could, in fact, lead to the end of his noble and ancient line. He felt that the idea of just waiting to see what happened was the exact sort of miss-step that could lead to him failing in his role to curate his ancient property and preserve it for future generations. In this cause, he sent his family - with as many heirlooms and fiscal assets they could carry- to England, for refuge. His good friend Lord Wooster agreed to provide lodging for Pytor’s family, at the same time Pyotr joined the White Army and attempted to assist them in their goal of restoring the Tzar. Following their disastrous defeat at the hands of the Bolsheviks during the Battle of Tsaritsyn, Pyotr - like so many other White Army officers - was relocated to the United Kingdom with the help of the security services. Upon being reunited with his family (His wife and four sons) Pyotr was able to convince Lord Wooster that because of his former social station he should be entitled to an estate consisting of at least a modest amount of land. They came to the agreement that a village would suffice. After securing his family's financial future and social standing, he began to expand the newly re-born Rumyantsev-Zadunaisky Estate. The first action that was taken help achieve this end was the opening of the; Pelican Social Club for Distinguished Gentleman, this club was based out of West London and was created for two main reasons. Firstly it was to add to the family coffers and secondly it was a way of booting the name recognition of the family. Pyotr’s final contribution to the family's estate came when he along with a number of other noblemen used their combined influence and wealth to open a private bank specifically to be used by members of the Pelican club, for tax purposes. The bank is based in Sark allowed the members of the bank to save substantial amounts of money as tax was virtually negligible. Pyotr lived the rest of his life on his country estate, spending time with grandchildren, hunting, entertaining and generally living the equestrian lifestyle of the Landed Gentry. He died on the 3rd of December 1940 aged 54. Breaking with tradition and convention Pyotr’s eldest son Fyodor opted to retain the title of Count - despite the nation in which he was a Count no longer existing. This broke protocol, under normal circumstances a deposed nobleman, would relinquish his title. In certain political climates, the title may be recognised by the country of refuge. However, upon the death of the title holder, the title should be discontinued. For some reason - possibly because of the influential men of the Pelican club, politicians, civil servants, nobility etc. - Fyodor was able to retain the title in a sudo-official capacity i.e. his passport noted his title as ‘Count’. So for all intents and purposes, the title has survived through some dubious legal proceedings. This left Fyodor as the head of one of the last great houses of the Russian Empire. Upon the commencement of the Second World War Fyodor and his three brothers commissioned into various regiments. Three of the four brothers survived the war, with Fyodor’s youngest brothers Alexey dying during the final weeks of the war. He was gunned down while leading a bayonet charge on an enemy artillery implant. For his actions, he was inducted positamouly into the Distinguished Service Order (DSO). Following the war, Fyodor returned to the family home to guide the Estate through the post-war economic trouble. Increasingly tenants were struggling to pay their rent, not wanting to leave them destitute, Fyodor sent his remaining brothers to Australia with orders to purchase arable land. After the land became the legal property of the Estate, Fyodor offered to pay the passage for any of his tenants who were struggling to meet the rent. He promised that on the Australian Estate’s rent would be lower than that of the current and that he would see that housing was provided free for the first two harvests, to allow time for them to establish themselves. Fyodor’s two brothers died while returning to the UK when their Commit Jet exploded in midair due to structural failure. Overall Fyodor did not rock the boat he guided the Estate graciously through the economic decline following WW2. Fyodor had two sons. The eldest named after his brother Alexey was the only one to survive childhood. Alexey in his early years travelled across the last remnants of Empire acting as a proponent for the crumbling establishment. Following the birth of his one and only son he travelled to Saudi Arabia in an attempt to encourage an oil company into the Estate - unfortunately due to interference from the US State Department, his opportunity to make his mark in the annals of family history. After this failure, he - much like his father - returned home and managed the current assets owned by the Estate. Unfortunately, during the millennium dawn, Count Alexey Rumyantsev-Zadunaisky died. The mantle passed to his 16 teen-year-old son. The anglicised Bernard Rumyantsev-Zadunaisky, educated at Eton, he then went on to study Classics at Balliol College Oxford. Bernard is an extremely ambitious man. He felt that his title may be under threat as it has existed for three generations without being tied to a specific country. It is with this looming threat that Bernard aimed to achieve legitimacy. Since the fall of Communism in Eastern Europe, many ex-soviet states were granted freedom from the larger entity. Bernard noticed this as an opportunity for him to press his Dejour claim on his family's ancestral land. Lucky - from a legal standpoint at least - Pyotr safeguarded the legal documentation pertaining to his lands. Bernard with the help of the ‘old boys network’ began negotiation with Chernarussian Government (following the civil war). He tried to use Ethos, Pathos and a tad bit of Logos - the pillars of rhetoric and negotiation - to win around President Radik this process lasted for just over a year. Just as Radik seemed to be warming to the idea the infection began, thus effectively putting an end to negotiations. As a quick aside - Bernard was a great admirer of his Great Grandfather and wanted to emulate him in any way possible. With the infection, Bernard saw a new opportunity, one that was fleeting and if he was to take advantage of it he would have to act swiftly and decisively. As control in the region of South Zagadia was lost, Bernard decided to move his Estate (business) and Household to the region. He took up residence on a piece of land that was traditionally home to Rumyantsev-Zadunaisky family. Following the brief period that it took to setup, Bernard realised that he was going to have to gain some amount of influence in the region to secure his family's future once this infection is concluded. He was going to achieve this the same way his Great Grandfather did through the establishment of the Pelican club.

    @Para After looking around the town, I was around 95% that he was alone. I attempted to RP but once I realized he was most possibly AFK, I decided that this may be my only chance to exact revenge. Thus I initiated (If he was faking it then he would most likely stop) and killed him as 5% of me was worried that the reports of a massive group in the area, could be real and worse they could be his friends. So I killed him with what was, in my opinion, a valid reason.

    There was also a more detailed voice initiation, the text was a quick thought just to make sure that if you did report (since I wasn't recording) I would be covered.

    POV Allies - @VodkaWolf @John Lazowski Story - The two individuals listed above were kidnaped by @ExoticRainbow 's group approximately 20-30 minutes before the fatal encounter. I then entered the town in hopes of finding the guilty parties, and if possible initiate on them. Upon discovering this lone individual me and my allies sculced around the area for any of his friends. After coming to the conclusion that the area was clear, I moved in to initiate on the individual whilst vodka covered me. I said ingame, As-salāmu ʿalaykum in order to establish if he was one of the culprits. Upon hearing no response I decided to drop an initiation. I then drew my gun pointed it at his head and said drop the weapon. Then as I was pretty sure he was AFK, but not sure if he had friends on the way, I took our revenge. But to cover myself in case this happened I also texed out an indication. Then I pulled the trigger. Nexed I picked up his gun and ran. The whole encounter must have lasted about 2 minutes, from us looking for his friends to the actual death. Edit - If I had not shot him, I could have gotten @VodkaWolf to shoot him as he did have kill rights. I do believe that my reason for killing him falls well within roleplay. To clarify - This occurred in the center of town, next to the church.

  17. Pre-Outbreak Bernard Cabot was born on December 16, 1985, in St. Andrews, Scotland. Bernard was the son of one of the wealthiest businessmen known to the modern world, Lord Percival Cabot. Lord Percival served in the British military as an officer and later became a politician. As a child, Bernard enjoyed a very luxurious and lavish lifestyle, often getting what he wanted. He was often shielded as well, often being escorted everywhere by a small team of A.D.S. operatives. When he turned sixteen, Percival began teaching him the finer points of the business world and would often bring him along on business trips. When he was older, Bernard went on to attend one of the most prestigious universities in the United Kingdom, the University of Oxford. After finishing his education, he returned to the forefront of his father’s business. His father soon showed him the darker points of his business empire. He learned of the history of the Aegis Corporation but accepted it nonetheless. His father began grooming him to take over the company as he was growing much older and could no longer keep up with the day-to-day decisions. Post-Outbreak At the age of thirty, Bernard was placed on the board of directors of Aegis. When the infection began in South Zagoria, it peaked the interest of Aegis upper management. Bernard, having political ties with various politicians reached out and offered assistance with the infection. Offering the corporation’s extremely experienced doctors and scientists as well as his newly formed P.M.C. regiment, the Aegis Countermeasure Service to help with relief efforts. Under the guise of assisting the Chernarussian government, Bernard along with a newly formed special purpose A.D.S. team traveled to Miroslavl to oversee the operations. Meanwhile, a different team was diverted to South Zagoria from the Miroslavl airport. Heading to the region via a convoy of black humvees. The team consisted of a small A.B.R.T. and A.D.S. detachment as well as a larger A.C.S. detachment. As the situation escalated, the South Zagorian team provided fruitless results and began suffering heavy losses. The A.D.S. and A.C.S. had taken heavy casualties between infected hordes as well as civilian riots. Bernard sent an order through a satellite phone to what was left of the South Zagorian team for them to regroup. Bernard would be arriving in the region to oversee the rest of the operation himself, bringing along with him his own special A.D.S. detachment. After arriving in the region he gave orders to slowly escalate their operations. Giving the green light to the A.B.R.T. to begin experimentation on the civilian populace as well as ordering the A.D.S. and A.C.S. to keep the civilian population in check through any means necessary.

  19. Server and location: S2 Chernogorsk Approximate time and date of the incident (SERVER TIME): 4:50 EST ish Your in game name: Alexander Lagunov Names of allies involved: Jacob67121, Reaper, Jack Rees-Mountbatten, MrMegaSheep (Yuri Jasen), Hassan and all the Civilians in the camp Name of suspect/s: Unknown. CDF beret Friendly/Enemy vehicles involved (if any): None Additional evidence? (Video/screenshot): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8Fx9951rnQ A detailed description of the events: A sudden shot was heard from a distance landed next to MrMegaSheep. Then another two shots were fired into the camp. All these shots were fired from an unknown assailant. Who himself was firing from an apartment block. Next MrMegaSheep fired one shot that hit the man in the head. All of these actions were unprovoked and occurred without an initiation. We strongly believe that this was an attempted KOS and Baiting. As this was an attempt to draw us into a firefight. It is clear in the video that there was no initiation. Thus this a clear example of attempted KOS.
  20. Born in 1985 into a middle-income land owning family. Alexanders father was a colonel in Soviet intelligence service. Growing up Alexanders father was absent. He was always away at the Kremlin or working in Novograd. He never had time for Alexander. In 1988 Alexanders mother was killed whilst she was driving her car home from the shops. After this Alexanders father placed the young boy in the state run boarding school for party officials. Whilst at this school Alex was indoctrinated into Soviet ideals. However, as he got older Alexander began to reject the rule of the Communist, as he blamed them for his absent father. Over time Alexander became a fierce nationalist. This lead him to join the COBR in 2009. Alexander vowed to never have children as he did not want them to have the same life he did.
