Ruckus Thompson was born in Brooklyn in 1997. He committed crimes to try to put food on his family's table, and buy clothes for his siblings. He was never a good criminal though, and got caught more than he got away. On his 18th birthday, he was warned to not commit any more crimes or his penalty would be severe. Shortly after that, he was sentenced to 6 months in jail and a year of probation after stealing a bait car. When the apocalypse began, he was on vacation with his sister, who unfortunately died after only a month. He is now stuck in Chernarus and is looking for a way home.
