Born as a mix of German and Russian, Mikal Surjo had a tough life as a child. His parents had divorced, and moved to different countries, each not wanting to take the boy. So, he had to live with his abusive Russian uncle, who was drunk on most occasions, and neglected Mikal. Eventually, he joined the Russian Spec Ops Team around 2290, proving that he was one of their best soldiers. However, when the zombie apocalypse happened on planet Xenon 115, Mikal was recruited into the group of four to handle the situation.
