Growing up on the harsh streets of London in the South of the UK, George got into fighting sports at a very young age through encouragement from his father, who was a professional Boxer. George started to train in Muay Thai at the age of ten and made his professional debut at the age of only sixteen. George viewed his father, Mike, who was the commander of an SBS (Special Boat Service) regiment as a huge role model in his life and was very close with him as well as his mother who was a Military Police Officer in the Royal Marines. Growing up with this military background as a man, George's family tradition was to join the SBS at the age of 21 and complete full training by 23, which George completed and by the age of 24 was a troop in his fathers regiment. As the SBS was such a prestige Special Forces military branch in the U.K. George learnt a lot of skills which he now uses in his day-to-day life in Chernarus.
Flipping the coin to why George ended up in Chernarus, his fathers regiment were called out to action when the outbreak happened to land in a town known as 'Chernogorsk' and extract a high ranking officer of the Royal Navy out from the area while taking no casualties or losses. This did not go to plan. The helicopter which brought the regiment to Chernogorsk crash landed after being shot down by a group of survivors and upon crash landing, George blacked out. As George was asleep, all survivors of the crash were shot dead by the group, which includes George's father, however they missed George as they thought he was dead when in actual fact he was only unconscious. Upon waking up, George applied his military knowledge to the situation and realised that the death of his father and friends in the regiment was not caused by the crash, but by people who greeted the helicopter after the crash. George needed to find a group of people to join up with as soon as possible to ensure his survival, so he started looking for groups with sufficient knowledge on how to defend against large amounts of people, or infected. George will stop at nothing to find the men that killed his Father and friends.
