Past life: Leonard Müller is a former sailor, corporal, in the navy, Bundeswehr. He's been to two wars or conflicts, one is outside Africa and one near the coast of Southern Asia. These conflicts were to counter piracy and smuggling.
before the apocalypse he worked at a small fishing boat where the crew of six got sick due to low reasources.
After the german navy, he took on a job before the outbreak as a fisherman on a fishing boat. On their trip to another former Soviet Union country, Croatia, the outbreak happened, yet they heard little of it, because they know little jugoslavian. Several days went gone, and they didn't really wish to enter any port, because on the horizon they spotted numerous fires and smokes. They even saw empty sailing boats with dead people and some screaming maniacs. They kept their distances, him and the six other fishermen.
Finally, they reached a smaller island outside Turkey and the people there, seemed fine...
Leonard tried to contact the embassy as his crewmates attempted to get more reasources for their journey back home. All for naught, the outbreak had spread to this island outside Turkey.
They all hurried back to the ship, but one of the crewmembers got ill, which would later result in the others being sick too.
Several days after the incident, Leonard was the only one onboard the fishing boat. His boat's fuel ran low and stopped, so his main goal is simply to survive and perhaps find a group of people willing to travel back to his country with.
He is approximately 27 years old, not looking to cause too much violence and doesn't want to participate in raiding settlements with other groups. But who knows what the progress has in store for him. Not much can be said about Leonard or whatshisname is, but at first glance he would seem quiet and reserved. But on his way through the Chernarus land, he is careful and watchful of his surroundings, and I'm sure you'd be too if you had a story like him.
