Before the outbreak: Adam Smith had a hard upbringing, his parents killed during the Civil War of '09 in Chernarus forced him to take matters into his own hands at only 9 years old. He left his home in Zelenogorsk and traveled north to hide away from the combat. Adam spent several years in the forests not knowing what was happening in the world and lived off the land and had not seen a single human at all during that time until several months and maybe a year or so after the outbreak started, Adam had no idea how long it had been since the war. After discovering several rotting corpses travelling through the woods he decided to overlook his old town of Zelenogorsk and found out about the outbreak. Following his discovery Adam decided he wanted to have fun and explore the new apocalyptic land and try to figure out what had caused the outbreak. Adam Smith has Aspergers Syndrome which causes him to have trouble speaking occasionally and sometimes has trouble engaging in social interactions (most likely caused of his time alone in the woods). He was born in Balota in 1999 as his father and mother worked for the military worked on Airplanes at the nearby airfield. They moved to Zelenogorsk in 2004 after both losing their jobs due to budget issues.
