From a young age Mike has been working on the stud farm of his father, mainly breeding horses. This farm goes back many generations. His grandfather owned a ranch in Amerika, but moved to the Netherlands because of better conditions. There he met his wife, and Mike father was born. At a young age Mike lost his father to cancer, and he was alone with his mother. As Mike was homeschooled, he also worked on the farm. Something he really liked doing. Mike managed to make the farm expand rapidly. To keep this up, Mike needed to bring his business further into Europe. Online he met a farmer in Chernarus who had a special breed of horses, they called Vyatka. This breed was an extremely strong workhorse that Mike liked to crossbreed with some of his own horses. So Mike went on his trip to Chernarus to meet up with the man. For some reason the plane did not go to Chernarus because of some difficulties and had to make an emergency stop in Russia. Because this was not far from the border of Chernarus, Mike decided you could go by car, and managed to find someone who would drive him for a couple of bucks. When driving on his way to the farm in Chernarus, some strange people were on the road. The driver got out of his car to check what the hell was going on. And hell was going on, because the people start attacking the driver and tearing his flesh from his bones. Mike jumped into the driver’s seat and tried to drive away. Mike can ride horses, but driving a car is not one of his skills. So at a small house near a forest the car hit a rock, and he had to leave it behind. Since then Mike is trying to survive. And lucky for him that the homeschooling he got, taught him a lot how to survive without being able to go to the stores for food. A few days later, he met a hunter who showed him the ropes of using a rifle and hunt for animals, as in return he taught the hunter how to prepare a decent meal from the food they gathered. But one day the hunter did not return, and Mike went searching for him, only to find his new friend ripped to shreds by a pack of wolves. The only goal for Mike is to find a place he can stay, where it is safe. But not all people have good intentions. And Mike isn’t the most social person in the world. Slowly changing from a good hearted man into an emotionless soul.
