Boris was born and raised in Leningrad ( Saint Petersburg ), Russia. His father was in the military and Boris looked up to him as his personal hero. Boris loved his family. When he was little his parents told him that he had a cousin who lived in Chernarus. Boris hoped that one day he could meet his first cousin. Boris got his education in Leningrad and when he turned 18 he had to serve the army for 2 years. After that he was faced with two choices to study in Leningrad or follow his father's steps. Boris did not hesitate to rush into the military academy but he wanted to be something greater than his father. He studied 4 years in Leningrad to become an officer but after the fourth year he got a letter from the KGB to join their "Spetsnaz- (Спецназ)" ranks due to his great efforts put into the academy. Boris travelled to Moscow. Then 3 more years he lived and trained with the "Спецназ", he made many friends but also he got to know that his cousin was in Moscow at the time. Boris was told that his cousin Vasya has delved into the criminal underworld. When Boris finished his professional military training, the officers included him in a mission to bust the drug mafia in Moscow. Boris's squad's mission was mostly successful but the narkobaron and his right hand man Vasya Kiryazov fleed to Chernarus. Several small parties from the "Спецназ" were dropped in different parts of Chernarus to find and liquidate the last of the mafia. Boris's squad was dropped off by a chopper into Solnichniy but was later overrun by the infected. Boris ran into the woods hoping that he wouldn't see more of the same horrors. Alone and lost Boris's only wish is to finally meet his cousin Vasya.
