Vladimir Volkov born on the 29th of November 1994, he was born within Chernarus. He took great pride and was had undying due towards his homeland. He grew up with a father, Alec Volkov who was a Nationalist and thus influenced him to also take up such an ideology. His father was also a socialist in the way that he believed the wealth of the nation’s resources should be owned by the Chernarus people and not foreign investors. His father’s agenda rubbed off onto him in every way possible, believing in very similar policies regarding the state. In a short sense, he was very politically active. His childhood was rather simple, he went to school and received average grades but was always good with his hands and grew up strong, even though it came from genetics, he believed that all Chernarussian men were born strong and brave. He lived a simple life before the outbreak, finding odd labor jobs mainly in local factories to sustain a living. He also grew up hating foreign Companies, foreign nations, was sick of Western imperialism and wanted Chernarus to become independent and self-reliant other than necessary raw materials that the country could not already provide. He joined a trade union, to find more jobs as well as increase the working conditions for himself as well as stop the exploitation of workers from foreign companies. He also believed that all strategic national resources should be state owned and therefore run by the people of the nation. After the dissolution of the trade union, the Apocalypse began to run rampant within the country, forcing him out of his home.
