Paul was born and raised in Seattle. He was raised by his mother and father along with his brother James. Paul took up an occupation in the logging industry that kept him traveling all over the forests of the northwest. For years he spent time in remote areas learning his craft. Paul traveled to Chernarus for an opportunity to experience forestry in his mother’s homeland. His uncle Pavel took him in and taught him the culture and history of Chernarus. Life was great, things seemed wonderful until the frenzy swept across the land.
