Elliot Henry arrived to Chernarus as a military soldier with his brother Batok, Elliot was not serving the military by much choice as it was a option for him to leave the country where he was wanted dead in his home state. Elliot and his brother were drug dealers and involved in a gang hated by society in general, but the money was good and it went south for them when they were forced to kill a couple rival gang members on the streets of Cocoa, FL. Thus brings them into the option to flee the states by joining the military in a time of need before either the rival members or the police caught up with them. During the transfer to Chernarus, Elliot and his brother were separated to different posts, being sent to two different major cities, Elliot in Chernogorsk since he got involved in the Army and Batok going to Elektro being involved with the Marines.
Needless to say they didn't know exactly what they were walking into, they soon realized it wasn't a war like you see on TV, but an evacuation and city shutdowns that turned into chaos. Elliot separated from the madness and headed his way to his brother not knowing that what would lie ahead of him would be an absolute nightmare.
