Abraham Smirnov, an American in Chernarus on a work visa was a Chemical Engineer who was employed at a power plant before the outbreak. He was a hardworking man who was dedicated to his craft. He had few close friends but a loving wife, Caitlyn, a Chernarus native who worked at the local children's hospital. Since the death of their only son as an infant, both had been heavily involved with trying to help the youth. One day, a very sick child was brought into the hospital. He had a cold sweat, fever, and a terrible cough. After an hour of rushing around the hospital attempting to help the child, he passed away. Shortly after, however, the child awoke and bit Caitlyn on the arm. She returned home that night and was alright. The next morning however, she too had a cold sweat, a fever, and a cough. Abraham rushed her to the hospital and shortly after, she too died. Abraham went into a deep depression and isolated himself. When the news reached him that this virus had begun to take over, Abraham took to his guns and trusted no one he met. Because he had grown up playing in the woods and exploring the wild, Abraham is a very skilled hunter and outdoorsman. He now leads a nomadic lifestyle, often setting up camp in the woods and avoiding people and interactions when he can. With the trauma of his past, he values others lives very little and while he does not seek to harm others, he will always put himself and his needs above others and if that means taking another person’s life, then that is what he will do.
