BiographyCervan comes from a simple lower-middle-class family. Born in a small town in northern Pennsylvania he spend most of his childhood alone because his parents were at work in a nearby factory. He grew to understand that the world is cruel and that only those who will fight for themselves will achieve something in their lives but also understood that true strength does not come from physical strength but rather from the strength of the mind.
With no particularly strong bond towards his parents, he often disappeared into the vast forests, not reemerging for months. He became a hardcore survivalist who always thought of new ways to defeat the wild forests around him and bend them to his will. The only real social contact he kept was towards his older brother Adam who also barely was at home, preferring to spend his time with friends rather than with his parents. The two got along well with each other and helped carry the burden their parents had put upon them. However, when Adam was old enough he immediately enlisted into the United Nations Marine Corps and was killed in action 7 years later.
When he turned 18, Oliver disappeared without a word and enlisted into the United Nations Navy similar to his brother before, never to be seen again in his home town. For many years he rose through the ranks of the UNN, earning himself a reputation as a hardcore militarist and a became known for unconventional and creative battle tactics, often using his environment or other tools to his advantage in battle.
He married Amanda Kingston at 32 and after 4 years they had a child together which they named Grace. Sadly just five years later Amanda died during an incident in a factory which led to the release of highly poisonous gas in a 50-kilometer radius around the center of the explosion. His wife worked in a nearby city which was quickly engulfed by the toxic fog. She died 24 hours later. From then on Cervan took care of his daughter as best as he can.
His nickname originally was given to him by a UNN instructor and it stuck with him and as his career progressed he adapted the name so much his birth name is rarely used by anyone anymore.
