Paulie Rosato was born in New York, United States. He was living in a tough neighborhood with his family. His father was a gambler. He lost his mother when he was twelve years old. He had a tough childhood and grew up so early. He was the only child of his family so he was always a lonely person. He always dreamt getting rich and because of that, he became selfish. When he was growing up, he had some friends from his neighborhood. He left the school when he was seventeen years old and hooked up with a street gang known as Chopperfield. He did scores and made some money, spent them on hookers and cocaine. When he became twenty-two years old, he realized that he cannot live like that and he decided to expand his business. Luckily, he had a Russian friend from his school days. After a while, Paulie and his Russian friend Victor, decided to skip the town and move another country across the oceans. They moved to Chernarus and settled down in a country house. During that time, Paulie and Victor started to steal goods from the peasents and sell them in the market. That wasn't enough but It kept them live for a while. After a couple of months, they found a new business opportunity. There was a military camp near their house and they wanted to steal weapons from that place. In a night, they were about to steal the weapons from camp, they got caught and they had been taken as prisoners. During that night something happened, that military camp lost his connection with the main base on the radio. A soldier came up and told them something and released them. Victor told Paulie that they were lucky because soldiers had different orders, they didn't want to deal with us. They tried to run away but something happened, one of the soldiers shot Victor. Paulie didn't even look behind his back, kept running.
