Bio: Having been born in the Chertanovo district in Moscow, Maxim Sergeevich Nazarov was destined for a life of crime. From a young age, he got involved in a gang of fellow youths. He mostly stole small items...bikes and what not before moving onto bigger and better things the older he got.
At the age of fourteen he was arrested after he was caught trying to steal a car belonging to a politician and was sent to Matrosskaya Tishina, in eastern Moscow. Knowing how dangerous prisons could be in Russia he knew the best way to earn protection from both the guards and his fellow prisoners, was to join the vory v zakone.
In order to gain their attention, he killed a fellow prisoner in the mess hall, stabbing him repeatedly in the neck with his shiv. The guards promptly beat him and while in the hospital wing he was approached. Thus began his criminal training.
He was released for the first time two years later before being arrested for trying to sell weapons illegally. He would later be arrested two more times before finally earning his stars. After his final release, he formed the Nazarov bratva (the Nazarov Brotherhood). For years he operated in Moscow but eventually decided to head to the US to pursue bigger and better things.
