Anatoly was an Ex-ChDKZ insurgent who fought in the war against the Non-communist government and the CDF. Anatoly and many of his comrades survived the war and later continued to hunt down Non-Communist politicians, soldiers and those who opposed the ChDKZ in their territory. Anatoly had a lovely family whom he loved so much until they were killed in a crossfire between the ChDKZ and the CDF, he later joined the ChDKZ to avenge his family so their death was not in vain. Anatoly had seen everything a war could offer, executions to bombing of cities that the ChDKZ had bases around, he remembers one moment where he saw a young girl being unable to move due to being in a crossfire, he would try to run up to the girl so he could save her but was stopped due to the massive amounts of bullets flying past his head, unfortunetely the girl was shot by what he thought was a CDF machinegunner. That is when he developed Years went by and the war seemed not to stop, Anatoly and his fellow comrades continued the fight against the non-communists who they despised, the last weeks before the end of the war, Anatoly was out on a patrol when they got ambushed, lot's of people in his patrol died, fortunetely Anatoly was the one to make it back. The horrors he saw cannot be unseen, war...war never changes. When the outbreak suddenly happend he tried to get in contact with his Ex-ChDKZ Comrades, but nothing, he found out that his fellow comrades have already been bitten and or killed by the Infected. Anatoly wanderes Chernarus looking for his long lost comrades and is "friendly" to whomever he meets, that is if the person is friendly at first sight. Anatoly has helped a lot of people in the past and will try to make up for his prior communist beliefs, he knows that communism is worse than he imagined since he was brainwashed in the military. Anatoly is the friendliest person to meet if you're the Right person.
