In the year 2008, Danila served as a paratrooper in Tskhinvali and was heavily injured after Georgia's attack in 2008. For the next four years he has been in a coma. At some point, an unknown supernatural entity offered him a deal. Danila was returned to life and turned into a weapon in a war with the demons, who are starting their evil campaign on the Earth.
Accompanied by a rebel impling called Shmyg, Danila moved to Moscow, becoming its first demon hunter known as Besoboy (this could be translated as "The Imp Slayer"). During one of his first missions Besoboy encountered Goriman, an old and superstrong demon possessing the body of a thug and rapist. Danila managed to kill Goriman, but the demon told him that the armies of hell are preparing a full-scale invasion on Earth. Though Besoboy was not sure if this was true, he started an investigation, which led him to a nightclub "7 Sins" owned by a mafia boss who was possessed by Zorek, another dangerous demon.
