Andreas Persson was always an avid hiker, coming from the vast northern part of Sweden. He belives that each person is to be judged induvidually on their actions. Andreas is a beliving Christian, and sees his traveling as a sort of pilgrimage. Even though he is shy about his religion and beliefs, he knows that this is a sign that the world is ending. Andreas is scared, secretive and thoughtful. Thinking that every situation can be solved without violence or atleast bring it to a small degree. Andreas is the procrastinating type, he likes to overthink situations when he's alone. This makes being with other people not always as easy as it always. Andreas has no real goal with being in Chernarus. Not really caring about his family back home, he does not really have a goal, but to survive and maybe try and contact his family and meet survivors along the way.
When he finally graduated and could be completely indepentent, he left his family and his life behind him to go see Europe. Couchsurfing around Finland and across Russia, Andreas ended up in the northern part of Chernarus. Andreas stayed in the virgin forest, reminding himself of old times back home.
