Will Morgen was born on September 15th 1990 in Toronto Ontario. At the age of 2 he was taken from his drug dealing parents by Toronto Child Services and given to the Burlim Family, who ran a foster house in the area of Jane and Finch. Although the Burlim's were good people they could not protect Will from the influence of the street gangs and he was soon caught up in the lifestyle of hustling. From the age of 18 to 24 Will and his best friend Clarence ran the streets doing what they needed to in order to eat and live. They sold drugs and even a couple of guns. They stole and hustled peopled. But in 2015 the duo wwas set up in the parking lot of a Wendy's and Clarence was gunned down, Will managed to escape but knew he would not be safe. Will and Clarence had often talked about getting out of Jane and Finch even going as far as to set up a job with a shipping company in B.C if things got too hot.
Will took the first plane to B.C and got in contact with the shipping company and luck was on his side. There was an opening for a Deckhand on a cargo ship bound for the Mediterranean and the Black Sea.
The work was new and hard for Will had to lie about his past experiences and for shipping and being on ships, he had none. Lucky he was not prone to motion sickness. In July of 2017 the ship he was on while in the Green Sea was rocked by a massive storm and forced into Chernarussian waters where the crew decided the best choice for everyone's safety was to beach the ship. Will was among the beached crew who like them knew little of the land that they were in. Will knew it was Chernarus but had not idea which province. Will Morgen went north with a large group of people and found shelter in a large port city of a name he could not pronounce.
Will stayed with the group when they were in Svetloyarsk and they bunkered down in the hotel located in the center of the city near a church. They scavenged for food and weapons and fought the infected when they had to. Will found himself being the protector of the group due to him being the fittest man of the group and his knowledge of pistols. But could not protect the group when he does not have enough ammo. One day the scavenge party was set upon by a large group of infected and many fell, Will himself suffered a terrible gash to his leg. This caused a split with the remaining members where a majority of them wanted to leave and find a safer place and try to survive. The group that left ended up taking most of the supplies leaving very little for the wounded Will and the 4 others. Will Morgen could not go out and help with finding supplies so he had to wait in the hotel. The four did not return and Will was left to survive alone.
