Did National Service in Russia where his aptitude with nearly all firearms was recognised. Became a career soldier and transferred to the GRU Spetsnaz Murmansk battalion. Served diligently for several years providing the muscle for the Intelligence officers attempting to suppress popular discontent in North East Russia. Ultimately rose to the rank of serzhant.

That was till the Five Corners Massacre. An unauthorized gathering of people complaining about life expectancy in a nickel polluted landscape. A junior intelligence officer in command of a fully tooled up Spetsnaz squad. A single thrown stone. Ratimir should have refused the order… But he didn’t. The incident made international headlines and everybody involved was quietly discharged and forgotten about.

Wanting to make a fresh start he took a one way ticket to Seattle and washed his hands of Russia, the military and their damned command.
