Timur was born and raised in Vladivostok, Russia where his father worked in the shipping industry. It was here that he studied art in high school until the Beslan school hostage crisis inspired him to transfer to the Cadet Corps and pursue a career in the armed forces. Afterwards, he attended Khabarovsk Military Commanders Training Academy before joining the Ground Forces of the Russian Federation and later the Spetsnaz 45th Guards Regiment. He saw action in the 2008 South Ossetia War.
He doesn't thrive in large groups but he is known to be engaging and expressive in one-on-one conversations. He has a patient temperament and can be introspective. He has a background as an artist, curiosity and attention to detail has trained him to be mindful and precise making him an excellent spotter and sniper. As a skilled painter, his art is expressive and colourful which is a stark contrast to his military life.
