My character is a Finnish male named "Erkki Järvi".
He was an orphan with no memories from the life he had before being sent to the orphanage in Helsinki, which always made him really sceptical about the people taking care of him.
He lived a somewhat peaceful life within the orphanage till the age of 18 and was forcibly cast out due to the mandatory military conscription in Finland. He spent six months in the military he was trained in Naval-Reconnaissance at the “Santahamina” Garrison.
After being relieved from military service he started working with local criminal organization being given the job of smuggling and hiding drugs and weaponry within the local archipelago due to the skills he obtained while in with the Naval-Recon team.
During the June of 2017 he was assigned a job to smuggle weaponry to the Quarantined Chernorus. The plane which was supposed to drop him and the weaponry to the Quarantine was shot down by the someone from within the Quarantine, Erkki was the only one who managed to jump out of the plane before crashing. The weaponry he was supposed to deliver was destroyed in the process, leaving him without an objective and the means of rescue.
He knew that the military would probably try to eliminate anyone trying to leave the quarantine which made him give up trying to leave for now.
Now he wanders around Chernarus looking for capable people to form a group of survivors to survive this living hell and find a way to break through the Quarantine.
