The Jahovich family ended up in Latvia after World War 2, when Casper's great grandparents tried escaping from the Soviet Union's influence by trying to escape to the west via train but ended up in hands of the Red Army and were re-located to Daugavpils - a city in Latvia by Russia's border.
Casper was born in a relatively wealthy family, his parents - hard-working and after Latvia gained its independence in 1991, managed to secure a hefty piece of land, growing crops and livestock. Casper was meant to be the next in line to this land and take care, but Casper knew it was never meant to be his destiny. He was interested in his actual heritage - Chernarus. Casper started reading more and more about, and found the country fascinating, and swore he'd end up there one day.
This dream was fulfilled in 2009 when the the civil war started in Chernarus, and with his last money, Casper traveled to his home country and joined NAPA forces. Casper already had combat experience from his time in National Guard in Latvia. After the civil war ended in a Chedaki victory, Casper tried evading their forces but was eventually found, arrested and sent to prison in Storohz.
Born in the city that lies on the river of Don, Ilya grew up to a loving father and mother, as an only child. His father was an engineer and his mother ran her own coffee shop. Growing up, Ilya played basketball and was quite good at it winning many competitions and earning the attention of the larger clubs around the country and even the National team. However, his ego got in the way and he basketball all together when he was not signed by any major team due to his height and was snubbed for the National team at the age of 18.
After the short lived athlete career, Ilya was conscripted into the Russian Army and sent to Novorossiysk, as part of the 7th Guards Airborne Division. After his conscription period of 12 months ended, Ilya decided to enter a contract with the army, staying there for another 5 years, until Ilya was discharged due to developing alcoholism over the years in the army. While he knew it was going happen, Ilya was still shocked but didn't worry too much about his future, thinking that he'll be able to get back on his feet in no time. However, it didn't happen so soon. Ilya had problems finding a new job due to having no higher education and the abundance of low-skilled labour. His drinking habits did not help, and as time went on he was slowly running out of savings and was too embarrassed to ask for money from his parents.
However, the situation changed when Chernarus was integrated into the Russian Federation - new opportunity arised. Ilya was offered a job and an apartment in Chernogorsk, Chernarus as part of Russia's efforts in increasing Russian presence in their new state. Construction work wasn't the most pleasant of jobs but it payed good and was in great demand, so there was always a lot of work.
Born and raised in the city of Miroslavl to a Chernarussian mother Natalia and father Jiri, Andrej already had an eventful life by the time he turned 20 years old. Andrej also had an older brother to whom he looked up to most of the time, since their father was a soldier in the CDF, and later a NAPA fighter, so he was away a lot of the time. Andrej’s mother worked in a textile factory and more often than not worked over-time in order to pay all bills and put food on the table. Despite living in quite a poor part of Miroslavl, Andrej had a good childhood - he got on well with most people and stuck together to the people closest to him which helped when living in a bad part of town. The school he went to was bearable; though, he did most of the learning himself since the teachers were there just to get the paycheck and couldn’t care less about the kids.
Some time before the civil war, Andrej’s father left the CDF as he saw their incompetence and corruption, and joined NAPA forces. At the start of the civil war, Andrej’s brother managed to get into CDF, despite being 17 years old. However, he died during the siege of Miroslavl when an enemy artillery shell landed next to him. Andrej saw with his own eyes the bloodshed the Chedaki had caused, the many Chernarussian lives that had been taken and even witnessed executions of civilians, and was disgusted that he couldn’t do anything to help.
Around a month after the war, Andrej’s father turned up at the family’s apartment and explained that he couldn’t return to the family and he had to help his Chernarussian in taking back the land that is truly theirs. Andrej was ready to go too, but he was too young. Jiri didn’t come back until 2013 when the new government started actively going after Chernarussian sympathisers and war criminals. He knew his family was going to be affected by this, so he pulled Andrej and Natalia into the forest with him. Jiri had to leave his NAPA unit in order to get his family, so it was just the three of them on their own, with no support. Andrej learned most of his survival and combat skills in the forest, alongside his father.
A month after initially entering the forest, the trio was given a fright when they were surrounded by a group of people in the forest. All three of them were brought to their knees and tied up. However, Andrej’s father knew everything would be fine once he saw emblem on their uniforms - two crossed swords and three stars on a green background - Chernarussians. Jiri introduced himself as a gone rogue NAPA fighter and had to answer a series of questions before they were all untied and treated properly. The man in charge explained who they were - Chernarus Liberation Front, a NAPA unit gone rogue. Jiri asked if they would take in his family. They were skeptical, especially due to Andrej’s young age. However, he agreed to take in the family and Andrej proved to be quite useful because of his age - he would often be the scout, informing the group of the enemy’s locations and movements. Being part of CLF finally gave him combat experience too, as he participated in many skirmishes throughout the years.
Now Andrej roams the forests of Chernarus with his native brothers and sisters with one objective - raising Chernarus back to its glory.

Why the verdict is not fair: It was fair
Additional statements/comments explaining your point of view: I acted on my emotions when another community member decided it was a good idea to have a go at my friends and group members, calling them children, among other things. I was irrational and responded in an immature way with the following message:
What would you like to achieve with this appeal: Discord ban removed
What could you have done better?: Not taken the bait another community member had made and rather than fire back, report the comments to staff, so that they can handle it themselves.
I think the server pop shows that in reality there really aren't any 'storylines' and things are quite stale atm.
Personally, I won't be playing that much because of DayZ itself - game has become a bit boring for me and the announcement of the lore wipe encouraged me not to play as much.
But that's just me.
We don't have tools like you to spawn medicine
You know how on stream you were constantly getting sick? Well, that is a daily occurrence for us, at this point every single character on Chernarus is a junky with the amount of pills one has to take in order to stay healthy. Could we please just remove getting sick altogether, doesn't make sense to get sick so frequently and just completely out of the blue.
But it seems like hunger might need some tweaking with how it works at the moment!
Sure, meta-gaming is an issue, but it seems to me that whenever some vital information gets found out or when you stumble upon that one streamer, most of the times it goes straight to meta-gaming accusations. There really is no way of knowing whether someone meta'd, unless it is just blatant, all you can do is either report, or suck it up and expect ahead of time to be meta-gamed.
