Hakan was born in Samsun, an underdeveloped Turkish city at that time. Growing up in a village, Hakan started working in his father's farm at the age of 8. Hakan started primary school a little later than most children, and extremely disliked having to go to a school. After graduating from the high school of trade in Samsun, he started working for a shipment company located in Istanbul. When the Gulf War started, he was very interested in news. After establishing networks, he started smuggling captured guns into Takistan when the Invasion of Takistan began. After the troops were withdrawn, he moved to Novigrad and continued running guns.
