As a child Daxter Vincent was very nervous and shy. His father died when he was at a young age. He lived with his mother all his life, always wanting to travel. As soon as he turned 18 he saved enough money to buy a van to travel the country. He traveled most of the US and decided to go on a trip to somewhere else in the world. He saw that there was a cruise ship and bought tickets to go. He started to get really nervous about going so he wanted to bring his best friend with him.
They were on the cruise ship having fun, when all the sudden they thunder off in the distance. Rain started started to pour down and the ship started fill with with water. Daxter ran down to get his friend but to his surprise he was trapped and had drowned. Daxter did his best to get him out but failed. He ran to the life boats hoping that there was at least one left, fortunately there was. Not being able to see anything, he covered himself with a tarp that was on the life boat and held on. He arrived on the shore of Chernarus and broken by the death of his best friend.
