My character is Marine Sgt. Michael Cross. He was finishing up his 3rd tour in Chernarus and was stationed at Pavlavo military base. His MOS was 35-Foxtrot (military intelligence). He recently learned that his parents had died in a car crash and being that he was unmarried and an only child he decided to stay in Chernarus instead of going home on leave. While he was on active duty reserve is when everything went down. With the base being overran by the infected and being separated from the rest of his unit he decided to head northwest to try and link up with any remaining soldiers from Mishkino or Tisy but he was unsuccessful. After a few days of searching with no success and having only a sleeping bag and the two days worth of MRE food he decided to head inland to brave the apocalypse.
