My name is Jacob James...
I was born in Aurora, in Northern Carolina; my early life, while not having the toughest of lives, was not easy either;
my family had been miners for generations, moved all around the country, wherever there was something to be dug out of the earth
a member of my family was probably there to do it. I left high school at 18 and went into the dying coal mining industry, the pay was alright
but the days were long and the mining company was struggling. one day i was browsing the internet when i saw an advertisment for mining jobs in
a country in eastern Europe called Chernarus.
I had never heard of Chernarus before, after some research it appeared that it was the result of the collapse of the eastern block and a few
civil wars later the country in it's current state, however the job payed well and it would get me out of this dying industry, it never said what
I would be mining, however it couldn't be that bad... could it?
Well a few months passed i got the job and visa and arrived in Chernarus in late 2016 it was a comfortable life, and it continued until the
outbreak, at which point I was trapped in a country that I couldnt escape and I thought all was lost until I met the James' brothers,
I had to prove myself to them, but after a few months they were like brothers to me, and I would have died for them and they for me, we made our mark
on Chernarus and made a name for ourselves by the terror we inflicted on both the survivors and infected alike.
As much as the infected destroyed everyone's world, it created new ones that I would never have imagined it could.
