Nathaniel is a 19 year old IT Consultant who enjoys playing games with friends and reading books in his free time. He usually is a friendly and reliable friend but when the odds are against him he will do anything to survive, even it means leaving his friends to die.
He was a drop-out from school, since he thought it was too boring, he learned most of the things he knows today because of the internet and self-learning, he was a fortunate man though, a company did a risky move and hired him for his IT Services and he ended up having a relatively good life at a young age.
Once he made up enough money in his bank and he was ready to take some weeks off work he decided he wanted to go Chernarus he never really heard of the place until it was covered by news outlets, and thought to himself, why not go there? So he went there with a couple of his friends to see the country side and perhaps learn more about the Chernarussian culture.
He decided he wanted to go to different tourist sites like Devil's castle and some of the other castles to learn more about the history of them, his friends weren't interested in history so he went alone, after a couple of days of hiking he finally found Devil's Castle since he went with no gps, he was so satisfied when he was on top of the castle and started to think what his friends are missing right now, they are probably in some bar near Chernogorsk drinking all day.
He took some pictures of the view and send them to his friends to even make them more jealous.
Couple of hours have passed and they haven't responded to him, which made him feel unwanted. So he decided he would camp in the forest for the night and hopefully not get eaten by wolves, or other wildlife there might be. When he closed his eyes it hit him, it was so silent he could hear everything which made him feel uncomfortable, he could even hear the grass grow and hear the leaves fall softly on the ground, eventually he fell asleep.
The next morning he woke up and saw that a squirrel was sleeping next to him, that made him not want to stand up, he thought it was too much of a beautiful moment and he didn't want to ruin it. Couple of minutes later and the squirrel woke up and left, Nathan decided to check his phone to see if his friends responded yet, but to no avail. He was pissed off about it and decided he could do his holidays without them, afterall he liked camping and hiking in the woods with the only reason being that he liked the peaceful time, no cars, no loud noises, just him and the nature. Once he was fully awake he made a plan which was very risky, he decided to walk in circles until he was dizzy and lost his sense of direction and would walk one way until he meets civilization once again.
As he kept walking to one direction for the next few days, the less scared he gets from the ambient noise. It was almost like he was one with the nature, like if he heard a noise he could say what it was, but in reality he didn't, he could easily mistake a fox for a wolf. After a couple of hours of walking he finally saw a village called Gorka. He went to it and saw what looked like a lot of drunk people.
When he finally arrived at Gorka he walked to one of the drunk people he saw but as he got closer the drunkman looked more dead than drunk, with blood covering all of his face and clothes. As the drunkman turned, Nathan saw that he had a bullet wounds to his chest. He tried to help him but the drunkman seemed to be charging at him, Nathan didn't think much of it until the drunkman tried to bite Nathan which Nathan barely avoided. He screamed for help but the only response he got was more of those drunkpeople coming out into the street walking towards Nathan. Nathan was smart this time and decided to run the other way, wondering what the hell is going on, and what those things were they were definetly not drunk, they must have been on some extreme experimental hard drug.
Nathan got a call as he was running away, the call was from one of his friends, the friend said with a frightened voice: 'Nathan, where.. are you? Something is going.. on. Oh man... Poor Jeffrey... He got kil...led by one of those things, I am at Vy..' and Nathan's phone turned off.. Nathan was pissed that the one time he needed technology, it wasn't there for him.
And now the story of Nathan begins..
