Mikayla is from Phoenix Arizona she worked there as a nurse, but she decided to move to Severograd, Chernarus when her parents passed from old age. She talked to her boyfriend Zavier about moving he gave in and went with the idea about moving to the decent town. Two weeks before the attack they stayed and lived their lives getting plans to soon get married, and start a family. The day the attack happened she was in a patients room and saw the chaos from the window, she panics and tells her patient she'll be back. She call's Zavier in a panicked manner he tell's her to get to the car so they can leave.
She makes it over and gets into the car. They drive off. Mikayla and her boyfriend make their way down to a town west of Severograd called Ratnoe. They find a place to stay there for the night. Later that night she started noticing abnormal changes in behavior. He seemed to cough a lot and sneeze a lot. Zavier also looked pale and red in the eyes. She told him to let her check him out because of his strange symptoms but he denied it.
The next morning Mikayla woke up. Zavier seemed to be still asleep and was turned away from her. She wiggled him and he turned to her immediately attacking her and screaming. She jumps and rolls off the bed and he goes for her again but she kicks him down. She bolts for the kitchen and shuts the door. She then grabs a frying pan ready to bash him. She warns him but he breaks through the door and goes straight for her and then gets bashed with the pan. He then grabs her ankle going for a bite and she hits him again. He gets up once more screaming. She hits him again crying. And then over and over again until he finally stops moving. She falls onto the floor with salty tears pouring down her face.
A week later she came to realize that this world has changed for her. She must learn to survive somehow.
