Julius was named after the great leader Julius Ceasar because his birth date fell on the date of his death. His father had an in-depth knowledge of history and always was learning about the past mistakes of prior leaders. He named Julies after one of Romes great leaders in hopes that he would be greater than his namesake. Julius's father and mother were libertarians and survivalists, having little trust over their government and feared its eventual collapse. This fear led to his father planning and constructing a survivalist compound and bunker on the outskirts of the Lolo National Forest. There Julius, the oldest of seven kids, and his siblings learned the rules of survival and the importance of family. While in the compound and bunker, Julius learned basic survival skills, first-aid, camping and hunting knowledge, and a scholarly education to boot. Their father handled the survival skills while their mother, an ex-university professor, handled the other educational needs.
But Julius would turn his back on his family in hopes of getting a life he never knew in the compound. One night at the age of 19 he left his home and began to wonder the world. He would become a drifter, his travels taking him all around the world, giving him the chance to see outside the secured compound he grew up in. His travels got him stuck in the country of Chernarus, having been told about the amazing sites and culture. It was here, taking in the sites, that trouble would begin.
It was midway into July 2017 and Julius was hearing rumors of a virus spreading through some of the cities up north. The values his family had taught him kicked in and he immediately headed to the Krasnostav airport to take a flight to Turkey. He boarded the plane and hoped that he would reach Turkey soon, but fate had other plans. Julius didn't remember the crash itself, only vague moments. He did remember waking up the wreckage surrounding him, and the cries of few that survived.
He made his way from the wreckage and began to search for supplies. While doing so He met Kiri, a young deaf girl. From there, the next several months consisted of them learning more about each other and keeping each other alive. That is until a hoard going through separated them, and now he has spent his time searching for her and keeping himself moving to prevent getting caught up in the problems of other groups.
