It wasn't until disaster hit, and roads were shut down because of a certain virus going around. Education was halted and Valentin stayed with his parents as he waited for this disaster to blow over. But it didn't, Valentines parents left to search for more information about the virus since there was no TV signal and they never came back. Valentin decided to wait it out, but when he saw the streets crawling with the dead, he knew everything was lost. So he went to the woods for safety and adapted as time went on.
