Despite being born in Chernarus Radek never really got to see much of his homeland before the outbreak due to moving around with his mother alot throughout Europe and eventually to Australia where from the age of 7 till 22 he lived a relatively peaceful life with his mother until she passed away. On her death bed she told Radek of his father who was supposedly a soldier when she last saw him back in his homeland. Hearing this made Radek want to meet his father and see this place his mother described to him as a rugged yet beautiful land and so he sold his mothers house and used the money to move to Chernarus. After arriving and settling into his new home he decided to look for his father but with only his own last name to go off he found it difficult for a while until eventually he met some soldiers at a local bar who knew the name nad told him to head to Balota at the local airfield. When he arrived in Balota Radek headed straight to the airfield and asked the soldier posted at the gate if there was a soldier with the name KInev stationed there, the soldier asked him why he was looking for him so Radek told him his story. After explaining everything to the soldier he saw that the man was crying so he went to ask why but was met with a strong hug before he could get a word out, this soldier was his Father the one he had been looking for all along. after their reunion Radek and his father went for drinks together and got to know each other and for a while life was good for Radek again. This was however until the outbreak happened, in the first few days Radek did what he was told and remained in his home but eventually he grew worried of his father who he could not contact so he headed to Balota to find him, when he arrived he saw that the entire airfield had been over run by the infected and he had to kill his first one. he noticed a bunch of the infected on the airfield were in soldier uniforms this is when he decided he needed to check them incase they were his father. After checking all the ones he could see and ultimately having to kill a few he thought of the guardhouse at the gate and ran their immediately, as he got into sight of it he noticed a figure standing in the little shack and approached it slowly upon reaching the shack he saw that the figure was not an infected but had taken their own life, it was his father. At this moment Radek ran into the fields and wilderness vowing to himself that he would not let his family end like that.
