River was in Cherno to win a photo contest when the virus started he was only 17. Now 3 years into the apocalypse, he now roams the wasteland as a loaner who takes pictures of the apocalypse and smokes weed. He is very quiet but is ready to fight for a cause. He grew up a single child but always had tons of friends, He learned to survive on hunting trips with his family and learned his love for photography in art class. River will do what he must to survive in this new world and hopefully meet new people along the way.
