Adam Banes was born to a family with a long history of being a part of the military in some sort of way. All his life Adam wanted to be a part of the special air service just like his father. Adam was very patriotic and wanted to serve his country any way he could. He had a very good upbringing and he focused hard in school to gain everything he needed to enter the SAS. Adam got into the SAS very easily due to his father and was instantly put into his squad.
When the outbreak started NATO requested some troops from the SAS and Adam and his team that his father commanded was a part of this pick. Adam and his team were sent to help secure the citizens in Chernogorsk. Adam and his team were assisted with many NATO troops but when the infected arrived they tore the soldiers apart including Adam's father and he is still haunted by the screams today. He was the only one left standing from his squad. To this day he still feels guilty for not saving his squad and most importantly his father. He has since devoted his life to helping people who are in need and is not afraid to kill anyone who poses a threat to his life.
