Cenek Jahod was born on the twentieth of April, 1977, in the Zelenogorsk clinic. The warm April air comforted Cenek at his birth, as he was a rather early baby. This meant he was underweight and was frequently cold due to this. His father was a member of the Red Army in Chernorussia, as back then it was a part of the Russian SFSR. Cenek was the second and last child of his parents, his other sibling being an older sister. By the time Cenek turned five, his father had to leave to fight in the Soviet-Afghan war, against the Mujahideen. He returned after being wounded heavily, being handicapped as he lost both of his legs to an Improvised Explosive Device. Cenek's mother slowly drifted from his father, eventually divorcing him. She tried to persuade Cenek to leave with her, but he declined, feeling responsible for looking after his father. Years had past and by the time he was twelve, Cenek was intruiged with the army. His father slowly turned his brain into his own image, moulding Cenek into a young man who wanted to tackle the world with the Red Army. Of course, by next year the collapse of the Soviet Union would come, soon after his father passing away due to complications during a surgery. Cenek was left alone, his mother living in Novigrad, him in Zelenogorsk still. The only actual family he had close by was his sister, who was working in a Takistani Embassy in Elektrozavodsk. He moved in with his sister into her apartment. Despite the poor living conditions he had to live in, he enjoyed being with family again. He attended school as a normal child of his age would, graduating with a diploma aswell. The day after he turned 18, he immediately enlisted to join the Chernorussian Defence Force. Through weeks upon weeks of rigorous training and he finally was where he dreamed he would be. A fresh Private, Cenek set out to do great things during his time of service. In the early 2000s he was one of the soldiers to be sent to ease the civil unrest due to the ethnic tensions between Russians and Chernorussians. By the time the Chernorussian Civil war started, Cenek was a Corporal after serving more than ten years in the 22nd Mechanised Infantry battalion. During the civil war, Cenek was a part of the force being assisted by the US Marines in Operation Harvest Red. Cenek's Battalion was one of which to find one of the many mass graves across the nation. Seeing these monstrosities, Cenek personally vowed to do everything he could to stop the Chedakis, growing a strong hatred against communists, after discovering a mass pile of dead young children, burnt to charred remains. Upon the war's end, Cenek finally was able to take temporary leave after being injured in action, taking a bullet to his left shoulder. After healing, he was enthusiastic to get back into the line of duty. Cenek was also invoved in the United Nations Peacekeping force in Takistan, helping occupy Zargabad. Upon the war's end, he returned to Chernarus. He had served to army to an age of thirty seven, still being single and childless. He had hoped by now he would be married with children, but it seemed now was not the time for this. By the start of the infection, Cenek was posted at the airstrip at Balota. When a large amount of infected had arrived at the air strip, Cenek was left in charge of a small group of soldiers tasked with protecting a small group of civilians at a nearby camp, who were awaiting a flight which had been delayed due to the infection. In this group was an Australian oil rig worker who had recently come off the oil rig nearby to Chernarus and was awaiting a flight home. However, the military at Balota were eventually overrun, leaving Cenek and the men under his command scattered. Upon finding a large group of infected crowding near a shipping container with yelling coming from within, Cenek dispatched the zombies and opened it, to find the same Australian man, called Lincoln. They scrounged up as much supplies as possible and left Zelenogorsk. The two travelled together, Cenek offering Lincoln protection, as he did not speak Chernorussian and was not accustomed to fighting. Eventually, they set up a camp for several months; however, due to dwindling supplies, they had to venture back towards towns and cities to start stocking up again.
