Grew up in Budapest helping his father and grandfather in a mechanic shop, his grandfather was part of the Royal Hungarian army and fought in Stalingrad. Being raised around his grandfather and listening to the stories of how bad Hungary was under the communist regime led him to become a militant anti-communist. News about the Chernarus civil war and the Chedaki uprising led him and a few like minded friends to learn Chernarussian and go out to assist the NAPA in their fight, simply for their opposition of communist. After the civil war he decided to stay in the country. Buying a house near the outskirts of Zelenagorsk, he took up the hobby of hunting, as his money dried up he spent more and more time out in the woods hunting. His life continued on like this, working odd jobs and hunting for his dinner most days up until the outbreak.
