Unlike most of his comrades, Artem was born in the Underhive of his homeworld. At a young age, his community was destroyed by raiders, forcing him to escape. He was adopted by another settlement, but when that one was destroyed as well, Artem escaped into the ruins and waged a one-man war against the raider band. However, he was soon captured by the raiders, who, in turn, were captured by Imperial Guard recruiters.

Artem was conscripted just in time to witness the very end of the Gaudian Heresy campaign, but survived two other major wars over the course of fifteen years. He is young for a Stalker, but his life in the Underhive and training under his older comrades have made him just as competent as the next Vonayan.

Unlike many of the troops in his regiment, Artem does not have an instinctive ill-will towards other regiments and authorities, but ultimately respects experience and competence over rank.
