Owen comes from a small village just outside of a nearby city. Being an only child with not many friends at all, he had spent a lot of time with his parents, or more specifically, his Dad. His Dad owned his own personal shooting range and Owen fell in love with guns, and became a gun nut. Since Owen loved guns so much, that's what he occupied himself with most of the time. His father owned a gun shop in the nearby city, and sometimes on weekends he would bring Owen to the shop to check out some of the weaponry. Owen's mother died of Cancer a few months before the infected were all that was left of the world and devastated Owen and his Father. Owen's Dad one day was on his way to work, and saw what looked to be a car crash into a telephone pole, and decided to stop and see if the person needed help. As he was approaching the vehicle, an infected came up behind him, and took a big chunk out of his right shoulder. Owen's Dad then fought off the infected, and called 911 as fast as he could, and was rushed to the hospital. As you could guess, the infected dominated the hospitals, and that's when IT happened. Owen quickly packed his stuff up, including his Dad's trusty and iconic M1911 handgun, pocket knife, and a few pairs of clothes, and caught got on the first plane that was headed to Chernarus, where his best friend Joseph lived but unfortunately the handgun being confiscated in the process. When Owen got to Chernarus he quickly realized that finding Joseph was not on top of his priority list anymore.
