Logan was born as James Howlett in northern Texas, America, during the late 1960s, purportedly to rich farm owners John and Elizabeth Howlett, though he is actually the illegitimate son of the Howletts' groundskeeper, Thomas Logan
Logan grew up on a farm. Here is where he learnt the art of living off of the land, a skill that has surely made life a bit easier living in Chernarus. Through his early twenties, Logan became synonymous with Bare Knuckle Fighting which earned him the nickname of Knuckles. Logan has been on both the right and wrong side of the law a few times, but as he has aged, he has learnt humility. He is no stranger to kindness and has helped a few struggling survivors but he has also been known to defend his land from bandits.
How Logan ended up in Chernarus, is a story in itself. He was flown here to tend a Farming Expo, but before he could leave to come home, the outbreak happened. While he still has nightmares about his past deeds, he has come to terms with the fact that this is his new home. He had no dependents back home, his mother and father were killed by his brother, whom he had to end up killing in defense. He struggles with nightmares about that night mostly every night, and turns to the one thing that keeps him going, his whiskey.
He travels to and from his little house in the woods, mainly to gather supplies for the week such as water, food and whiskey. He usually goes out to hunt on Saturdays. Sundays are his days off, where he likes to sit along side the dam and fish. One with nature.
Logan doesnt trust a lot of people, he has seen both the good and that bad in them, this is why he prefers to live alone. He had a dog, Diesel, whom was killed when his farm was broken into by two bandits. Logan managed to fight them off, killing one and wounding the other, but he always swore his revenge on the bandit that escaped. He never forgot his face, and to this day, waits until they cross paths again.
Survivors that have been helped by Logan claim that he is a man of few words. A man that seems lost in his own mind. He tends to chew on wheat but barely says a word during his travels. One survivor even went as far as saying that they swore the man, Logan, was dead inside. That might be so in their eyes, but he is a man that has seen what others can do. He tends to analyse situations and come to conclusions, the right ones most of the time, before the situation even develops. This, he learnt from the time he served in the United States Marine Corp. From the age of 23 to 28, he did two tours and was awarded the Purple Heart for his heroic actions of the battlefield. He was discharged from the Army due to not obeying direct orders given to him by his superior. His fighting skills may have waned in the last few years, but his intuition and knack for being at the right place at the right time definitely hasnt. As for his beard, well its been a few years since he has found a razor, and even if he did, i hardly think he would cut it.
