As the war raged, the stations who refused to join either side were either demolished by the factions, merged into the Hanza regime, raided by criminal bandits, or formed their own independent states.
Other stations were outright destroyed by animals, mutated by the nuclear fallout. While most of the stations were controlled by the three main factions, some stations formed an independent alliances, including the station VDNKh "Exhibition". Within that station, the events of Metro unfold.
Plot[ edit ] The protagonist of the novel is a year-old man named Artyom who was born before the nuclear war. He was saved from a horde of carnivorous rats that killed his mother and the inhabitants of his station as a baby by Sukhoi, a military officer. Artyom spends his time on patrol in the tunnels and working in the mushroom factories. Artyom meets a man named Hunter, who is looking for Sukhoi. The three meet and discuss the situation in VDNKh.
VDNKh is facing increasing attacks from mysterious creatures known as "The Dark Ones", who inspire terror throughout the station. Hunter leaves, but asks to speak to Artyom.
Artyom confesses that 10 years earlier, he and his friend went to the surface at the neighbouring station, Botanical Gardens.
They were unable to seal the exit after their visit and the Dark Ones have been using this entrance to the metro ever since. Hunter tells Artyom that he intends to gather intel on the Dark Ones, and in the event that he doesn't return Artyom must carry a message to a man named Melnik at Polis with news of the threat.
Feeling a sense of responsibility for the Dark Ones' attacks and seeking adventure, Artyom accepts. Artyom begins to journey towards the centre of the Metro. His first companion, Bourbon, is killed by a psychic force transmitted through the pipes and Artyom is then guided by a mystic named Khan.
