Kennedy has traveled to Chernarus to study abroad, and has been stuck in a worldwide epidemic in which he cannot escape.
Kennedy grew up somewhere in Wisconsin with his mother and father, of which divorced when he was 14.
Kennedy continued living his life as a bored, depressed student up until he got fed up with the American community around him. Chernarus has been in the news for years.. Maybe if he went on a little study trip for a year he'd get a break from what's been going on around him. Without much knowledge of the country itself, Kennedy made his way to the Chernarus capital, Novigrad.
Without giving away all the events taking place before the apocalypse, Kennedy now resides in Cherno, alone. Surviving all by himself.. It seems the friends he made while traveling here have all disappeared. Maybe he'll find some new ones and survive this scary and foreign world.
