Austin was born in Las Venturas to Alan and Grace tyko. He lived a relatively normal childhood with his childhood friend Patrick and sister Jane. At the age of 18 he joined the Military  and served multiple tours of duty only returning a few times over the years. Finally returned home for good in 1994 and found Las Venturas to be a city in ruin due to the economic collapse and the decline of the housing market. He slipped into deep depression and turned to alcohol and drugs to heal his pain. He made one two many mistakes and was charged with Manslaughter during the commission of a felony (Felony Murder) when he was attempting to rob a liquor store and the clerk dies of a heart attack. Only 10 months after his return to the U.S he was sentenced to a life sentence without parole and served over two years of his sentence before him and Kyle made a daring escape. When he arrives in Las Venturas he is unable to locate his family and spends a good part of the story trying to locate his family and put his troubled past behind him.
