Alexander Dimitrii Zdenek is born and raised in the capital of Chernarus, Novigrad, together with his brother Antonin Zdenek and parents Dimitrii Zdenek and Anna Zdenek. Alexander Zdenek grew up in the lower groups of society due to both parents lacking the educational standards for an decent income they were tied to the most simple of jobs in society and could never hold down any of them, From cleaning to garbage disposal, from sewage maintenance to janitory works his parents saw lots of work in the lower base of society but due to this the income stayed low and therefore the family of four barely made ends meet at the end of each month struggling with even the most basic of needs often leading to the family being forced into nearby forests foraging whatever they could to still make ends meet at the end of the month, this cycle continues over the years causing additional problems in the education of both alexander and his brother anton as beyond basic education the brothers would end up in the same prepetative cycle and as such the older brother spend a lot of the little time that he had searching for a solution to the problem leading him to a government funded project to educate new doctors within the nations borders, and with a lot of effort got himself into this program. As a small child seeing his brother achieving this and studying over the years Alexander was determined to follow the same path however due to the civil war the project was cancelled as all funds were needed to rebuild the nation disallowing Alexander to follow in his brothers footsteps, still to work towards his goal he frequently volunteered for the red cross and gained some medical experience as a young lad during several national mishaps that happened over the years and required the aid of the red cross, obviously due to his age and knowledge he was not allowed to conduct any direct medical actions on anyone but due to the fact that he helped out he learned a lot about the procedures and that would in return help him in the future.
As the years passed and his brother started to pick the first fruits of the program money started slowly pouring into the family slowly breaking the cycle that was plaguing their lives, and with this Alexander could also find hope in a new beginnings, it was tough getting started at first but as time progressed he managed to get himself enrolled in a local medical school, at the age of 19 allowing him to finally gain the knowledge needed to get where he wished to end up. Much was learned over the year that he spend on the school but an incident in the neighbouring province of south Zagoria required some attention and as such the medical students, including those from his school were temporarily transferred over to aid with basic tasks in the medical field within the region, however once they arrived it was not all as it seemed.
