I would like to play as James Chansey, a British combat photographer traveling on the Costa Risacca. Having spent most of his adult life in the heat of battle, capturing all kinds of horrific and brutal events, James accepted the job of investigating the activity in Chernarus. With flights no longer available, James boarded the Costa Risacca, not knowing he was heading straight for the source of humanity's downfall.
It quickly became appearant that the situation was worse than he had excpected. From the ship you could see smoke rising in the distance, an explosion could be heard. As they got closer, the sound of helicopters flying low was common. Clearly, the ship could no longer dock in South Zagoria. Nature, however, had other plans.
The storm hit suddenly, and it hit hard. Before long, a sudden crash, and passengers were told to rush for the life boats. James was traveling with a journalist, Gordon Hastings, but got seperated when the ship sank. With luck, he was one of the seemingly few to end up in a life boat, eventually drifting ashore.
Sticking with the group that was on the lifeboat for a while, taking pictures along the way of horrific situations, some of which he barely survived. Believing that the information will one day be cruical for humanity, James will want to capture as many details of the infected as possible.
In a short time, James has experienced the infected first hand, and what they can do to a person. He has yet to see someone turn, and while he hopes that day never comes, if it does, he hopes he will be ready.
On the lookout for his traveling companion Gordon, James is looking to gather as much info as possible, hand it over to anyone who could make good use of it, and one day return home.
While James is friendly in most situations, he is calm and collected, and will do anything to reach his goals.
