Character Reasoning for becoming one of the listed factions. (One Paragraph - Seven sentences. (This does not include civilian factions. Such as Dweller.))
Leonid didn't even want the job of leading the local militia, but regardless of his objections he quickly found himself thrown into the position as a result of his background and his natural talent for the planning and execution of events, no matter how dull or mundane. Aged 27 and but a humble police officer before the War of 2013, he was terrified at the thought of being put in charge of the station and its inhabitant's fates, but quickly he realised there was simply no alternative. Though he had dealt with his fair share of shit during his time serving in the Moscow police force, he had never felt such weight or responsibility bearing down on him until now. He rose to the challenge, doing his utmost to try and maintain some semblance of law and order in a new world where the laws and orders of Russia no longer seemed to apply. As years passed, he grew into his position - His sense of duty and responsibility for the people of the Kolomenskaya Allied League only heightened with every passing day and incident - and his previous feelings of doubt and despair soon dispersed. By the time the mutants had crept their way into the Moscow Metro, Leonid was passionate (even obsessed, some might say) about the defense of the stations and their helpless inhabitants. After seeing what the disgusting new creatures were capable of and with the mutants pressing ever harder on their stations, he found himself driven and determined to uphold the League and its stations, no matter the cost. If ever proof was needed, Leonid showed his dedication to the League's well-being by taking and enacting the decision to collapse the tunnel leading into Kantemirovskaya to delay the mutant hordes and their attacks on the other two stations. This gave his forces time to recouperate and rearm before the attacks continued, and when the mutants were able to attack again they did so in much smaller numbers. Some 20 years later and a somewhat hardened veteran of the local tunnels, Leonid couldn't imagine a day where he doesn't risk life and limb for the dwellers of the KAL stations.

Character Backstory. (At least 2 paragraphs - Seven sentences per paragraph.)-

Born in Moscow in August 1986, Leonid came into a world at a time of great change for the Soviet people. He had come into the world during the final, dying years of the almighty USSR.

His family were a typical working-class family. His mother stayed at home and cared for him, Leonid being an only child, and his father worked for most of the day throughout the working week. Though he worked most of the time, Leonid's father made a great deal of effort to spend time with his son during his formative years. As a result of these efforts, Leonid had a relatively good upbringing and it was hoped by his parents that the economic stagnation and corruption which had plagued their lives would soon be rid of. Years went by with very little change to the Barkov family's situation, until the fateful coup attempt and the Soviet Union's formal dissolution in late 1991. Not all was well however, as yet another period of economic strife followed in the wake of the USSR's quick collapse. Times were tougher than ever for the ordinary people of Russia and its former states, but Leonid's parents did everything they could to support their son throughout the 90's - Leonid's mother took up a part time job, and his father had decided to take on a second job. Though neither of them could spend as much time as they liked with their beloved son, it was a
sacrifice which was necessary for their own well-being and survival as a family. And so for the next decade, they remained in that same cramp, dark, and aged apartment. Leonid attended school, and achieved generally average grades for most subjects. It was noted very early on however that his problem solving skills were somewhat superior is comparison to his other assessed areas. His school life was relatively uneventful, where he made a few friends and did as well as anybody could expect from a teenager of his generation. An uneventful life for an insignificant boy. He managed to land himself a basic office job after graduating and worked in that same job for the best part of 7 years or so, before he decided that there must be more to life than staring at a set of monthly financial reports and typing them up into a database. It was during that moment of inspiration that he decided to join the newly formed Police (Politsiya). Newly formed from the remnants of the old Militia (Militsiya), he had joined at a time of great opportunity. Wages had been tripled in recent years, and there was a much higher standard stand in place for officers though it was by no means perfect. While bribery and corruption were still very much a problem, Leonid vowed that he would do his best to uphold Russia's laws and not be tempted by the criminal's offers and money. For the next 2 years, he did just that, dealing with all manners of criminal and anti-social activities in all areas of the city. And then came that fateful day in 2013, a day which still plagues him with nightmares and constant guilt.

He had the day off, and had decided to take a somewhat risky stroll around his neighbourhood. Not that there was much to look at, but an hour or so of air usually helped him to clear his head of the usual stressful things which had taken control of his life. His time in the force had already begun to take its toll, and for his own safety he was considering accepting a bribe in regard to a recent arrest he had made. It went against everything he stood for, but he was worn down, tired, and somewhat apathetic towards his duties. His enthusiasm had declined suddenly when the death threats started arriving through his letterbox, about a week prior. Though walking usually helped calm him, his paranoia was growing with every passing moment. He spent more time looking over his shoulders than actually trying to clear his head. He decided to diverge from his usual route, lest his 'friends' know his usual route - It took him to the Metro entrance. 'Kolomenskaya' the sign read. And no sooner had he walked right past the station entrance when the piercing whails of the sirens sounded, filling the very air with their intense shrieks. It was a twist of fate, one simple decision which had saved his life. At the time he didn't think anything of it, he had no time to ponder on such miracles. Immediately he darted into the station entrance. The guards hadn't even gotten into position as he passed through, running with the small crowd which had already gathered on the escalators and stairs. Not once did any of them look back, and before long they all found themselves crammed into the tiny station. They waited for what seemed like an eternity, when the Earth itself seemed to tremble and shake. The lights flickered, the walls cracked, people screamed in terror. Then the blast hit, with a prolonged and deafening roar of nuclear fire. Everything fell silent.

In the weeks following Moscow's nuclear armageddon, a handful of brave guards ventured forth into the newly decimated city they once called home. The few that returned only brought grave news with them. It was now apparent that the dwellers would be here for the foreseeable future, and preparations were made to make the station a feasible 'home' for these hundreds of displaced people. It was during this period of organisation that Leonid found his calling, though it was not immediately apparent. With the station guard's numbers dwindling quickly as a result of surface and tunnel expeditions, it was apparent that a form of militia should be set up if the station was to remain secure and orderly in the long run. To command this new militia, Leonid was chosen for his law enforcement background - Though much to the dismay of many of the station's dwellers, as even after society had crumbled authority figures were viewed with suspicion. Ironically, it was the general distrust of the existing station guardsmen that lead to the formation of this dweller militia. This came as a surprise to Leonid, as he was aged just 27 and had scarcely been in the police force for 2 years. He refused avidly, claiming that out of the hundreds of dwellers present within the station that there must be somebody more qualified. The dwellers however persisted with their choice, and after several more weeks Leonid had been convinced that there was no alternative; He had to lead the militia. Though timid and uncertain at first he soon took on the role seriously, determined to try and uphold some sort of law and order in a world where such things were no longer deemed necessary. As the first few years went by, he became more and more adept and confident in his abilities. It became an obsession, a drive, to see that the station remain protected and orderly. It was all Leonid ever thought about. Every single day he would plan things meticulously to try and improve the current situation, to try and defend the Metro's defenceless dwellers from the emerging threats of the tunnels and surface. His efforts soon came to fruition, as he was able to organise a somewhat strategic alliance between 3 neighbouring stations; Kolomenskaya, Kashirskaya, and Kantermirovskaya. It was at this time they became known as the Kolomenskaya Allied League - A trade and military alliance between the stations. The militia saw a rapid expansion in both size and responsibility during this period, and greater efforts were made to secure the tunnels of bandits and other rogue or potentially dangerous people to allow a stable tunnel system between the stations. While the KAL militia saw decent success against the small groups of bandits and unknowns in the tunnels, a new threat was brewing that would change everything; The mutants had arrived.

Leonid usually ventured into the tunnels with his militiamen on expeditions in an ongoing attempt to secure the surrounding Metro network for the KAL, and it was during once such expedition that his first encounter with the mutants occured. His expedition stumbled upon a bandit hideout, previously unknown to the militia. Deciding to investigate, the team entered cautiously only to find a bloodbath. These disgusting, deformed creatures feasting upon the mutilated remains of what were assumed to be bandits. The team opened fire on them, horrified at the beasts and the revolting scene before them. Though the pack of mutants (Later identified as Nosalises) went down, the team's victory was not without loss; Several of their original team fell to the foul beasts. Leonid knew that he had to do everything in his power to prevent the same gruesome fate befelling the dwellers within the KAL. Since that encounter Leonid has made the elimination of the mutant threat his primary objective. The militia's long and tolling war against the mutant hordes rages on, but came to a climax when the station of Kantermirovskaya was completely overrun with mutants and had to be evacuated. Knowing that there was no way for his men to continue such a hard fight against such numbers, Leonid eventually had to relent and gave the order to demolish a large part of the connecting tunnel in order to delay further attacks against the remaining 2 stations. This moment of his past still troubles him, as it represented a turning point in the KAL. No longer was the league expanding and thriving; Now the league was merely surviving with whatever means its dwellers had.
As a result of the friends lost and the blood spilled during his time commanding the militia, Leonid takes the war against mutants very seriously. He was given this position by the very dwellers he now seeks to protect, and he will be damned if he will fail them when they need him most. Now 47 and still obsessed with his duties, Commander Leonid Barkov has become a somewhat cold and reserved man; Hardened by the constant fighting and disorder the Metro imposes upon him. Plagued by guilt, ravaged by fear of failure, and devastated by many personal losses, Leonid's future is set to remain as dark as the metro tunnels he wanders.

(Note: This backstory isn't great, but I wrote it all in a few hours so go easy on me Razz)
