Biography

Dmitry Bale was born in 1984 in the Soviet Union. In 2005, Bale joined the Spetsnaz selection with his brother Maxim "Minotaur" Bale and served in the Spetsgruppa A – Alpha Group in counter-terrorism where he achieved the rank of Staff Sergeant. Bale and Minotaur were described as "inseparable".

In 2009, Bale is gravely injured during the Kurbanov Hospital siege during the Second Chechen War. Bale suffered a C6 spinal cord injury from a gun shot wound. He was reported dead to Minotaur who was discharged for psychological trauma, blaming himself for the "death" of his brother.

Bale was allowed to continue active duty in an administrative role in the GRU. He was fully rehabilitated over five years. In April 2014, he passed the physical requirements for readmission into the Alpha Group. Bale later served six months under General Roman Barkov until he filed formal complaint, citing civilian deaths.

In July 2019, Dmitry tracked down his brother and recruited him for the Allegiance in November of the same year.

In March 2020, Al-Qatala's new leader Khaled Al-Asad launched a full-scale assault against Verdansk in Kastovia. Operators from Coalition and Allegiance were deployed to Verdansk to stop Al-Qatala as part of the Armistice initiative.
