You tell people that growing up in a former Soviet Bloc nation instilled in you a rebellious nature and disdain for authority. That nature could have been channeled into physical acts of vandalism, but you’ve always considered yourself above that. Instead to strike at authority using your mind…and a kick ass rig. That’s how you came to be involved in the Zakarov Sundicate. They needed hackers, and you are one of the elite…
It’s all bullshit of course; you’re as American as John Wayne, baseball, and apple pie. You can barely do a passable Russian accent. The ‘Zakarov Syndicate’ is a fictional organization from a b-list video game. The truth is that you are just a small time script kitty with the know-how to run simple ID theft scams and crack the odd database. The story is just how you sell yourself on hacker forums like DarkMarket and TheftServices…not that you’d ever admit it.
