KARL ORNBERG, SWEDEN
Karl Ornberg was born in the year of 1989 in Gothenburg, Sweden. He had a good childhood, attended a good school, had many friends and got a good education. He had a brother named Måns which he loved very much. When Karl was a child he was very fascinated by Police and Military work. He had his own dolls and action figures and played in his bedroom all day. When he got older he was finally allowed to watch movies such as Rambo and Saving Private Ryan, that's when he knew he wanted to join the Army. Karl's brother Måns was 6 years older than him, making him 20 years old when he joined the Army. Måns was a fast and athletic guy who spent most of his time in the gym, Karl's brother joined the Army Karl's brother was in the Army, he was an infantry soldier during the "MALI (MINUSMA)" where he was actively deployed.
After five months of his brother being deployed Karl family got a message they never thought they get. His brother was killed in combat (K.I.A). Karl and his family were extremely shocked and depressed. That's when he wanted to join the Army to show respect to his brother and finishing his unfinished work in Africa. Karl was drafted into the Army when he was 18 years of age and started his education. Six years later, he is now a Jägarsoldat "Jaegersoldier" in the Swedish Armed Forces (Försvarsmakten). He is currently a heavily trained soldier and is now practising drills on the Swedish island Gotland which is the main focus for Swedens defence. Karl was both deployed in Afghanistan as an ISAF soldier to help and calm the Afghan war, he was also deployed in Mali during operation MINUSMA.
Nine years after he became a Jägarsoldat (Jaegersoldier) he got the message of an outbreak reaching the borders of Russia, Chernarus, Ukraine and of course... his motherland Sweden. He was terrified about the thought of a virus that would transform a fully functioning human being into a flesh-eating monster that would tear anything apart... He took his stance and protected his country for as long as they would last against the infected and unfortunately it wasn't long. The infection was spreading fast, it first took notice in small Villages and Towns but later reaches the bigger cities like Stockholm, Malmö and his hometown Gothenburg. The infection was at its peak and it was now kill or be killed. Swedish Department of Defence (Försvarsmakten) decided to send three highly trained soldier to Chernarus to help the United Nations (UN) to keep the peace as UN Peacekeepers, which Karl was apart of. Karl is now a part of the Saviors and is living everyday with them and making sure he is protecting his brothers and civilians of Novaya.
