Petr Tokarev was born in Chernagorsk to Sergei and Nastya Tokarev on May 13th, 1998.
Growing up in Cherno Petr had a better childhood than most kids in Chenarus with his Mom Nastya working as a shift manager at the International Hotel and his Dad Sergei working in the Russian and eventually during and after the Civil War the CDF. Petr spent most of his childhood tinkering around with old and broken TV's and other small devices he found thrown out by his neighbors. Petr's dad Sergei who was stationed as a helicopter mechanic at the nearby Balota airfield would also frequently take Petr on weekend trips to the airfield and allow Petr to help him work on the various Mi-8 and Mi-24's stationed there.
When Petr turned 18 he knew what he wanted to do, he enlisted in the CDF, completed basic training at NWAF and eventually with some string pulling was assigned alongside his father as a helicopter mechanic at Balota. After about 9 months of working at Balota Petr started hearing of strange events occurring around Severograd from the helicopter pilots who would come back from patrol, soon after Petr noticed a rapid increase in activity among the CDF command and about a day later 2 battalions arrived at Balota and Cherno. Petr quickly found more work that he absorbed himself in as nearly 20 more models of Mi-24's and 8's arrived at Balota. Petr spent the next few days working tirelessly at the base struggling to keep up with the influx of work.
Eventually strange creatures started showing up around Balota's perimeter attracted to the sound of the helicopters. These were quickly dispatched by the troops stationed to guard the airfield. As another day passed Petr started noticing more and more CDF troops slipping away in the night to go and protect their family's or to somehow get away from the outbreak that the news had been talking incessantly about until they went quiet. During the night more creatures started arriving at the bases perimeter and shooting only seemed to attract more. After a day or two of this the base was on the verge of being overrun and the base commander realizing that he had neither the men nor the ammunition for a prolonged siege decided to evacuate the base with the remaining helicopters. Petr and his dad Sergei managed to find a spot on a Mi-8 headed to West Chernarus. Soon after takeoff strange scraping noises started emanating from the Mi-8's engine and soon after the helicopter went into a descent with the pilots able to autorotate and crash land the crippled aircraft in a field. Waking up dazed from the crash Petr noticed that a metal fragment that broke off from the cabin during the crash had killed his father and that he was the sole survivor of the crash. Petr picked himself up and left the crashed and near burning Mi-8 stumbling off into the forest alone and afraid.
