Hans was a studious child. He lived at home in a relatively standard home with his parents and his sister. His father was a well respected professor at the University in Würzburg and his mother was a nurse in a nearby hospital. So naturally he wanted to become doctor, and not only a doctor but a well respected doctor at that.
Dr. Hans Zeiler graduated from the Ulm University near Stuttgart, Germany. He followed to do his residency and specialized in neurosurgery and neurology. He got what he wanted earlier in life and became well respected for having a steady hand and a high success rate. Dr. Zeiler had gained a deep understanding of the human body.
"I was mid surgery when it started. After we were operating on a patient for 14 hours he began clotting unexpectedly and soon after his blood was like honey. We called time of death shortly after at 3:40am. The nurses and my fellow surgeon Marx who was assisting me were all wanting to rest. One of the nurses was asleep and Marx was trying to find the cause of the clotting to no avail. We couldn't tell what had happened, almost as if it was a freak accident. Marx and I went to the doctors lounge where he fell asleep, I was watching the news and this country known as Chernarus began having full scale riots and chaos. No idea whats going on there.
Next thing I heard was the last thing I wanted to, our Dean of Medicine said they are going to send a handful of doctors and scientist over to Chernarus to study and help treat the illness that had recently begun. My name was on the list and so was Marx.
Upon arrival in the city of Zelenogorsk, we began working closely with the police and started triage for the general public. We were short on trauma doctors so Marx had to go deal with a gunshot wound somewhere in town. Then the power went out. Our soldiers and police turned on their torches and things got quiet. Then I was startled by a deafening bang on the door of the infirmary. It wouldn't stop and was only interrupted by a blood curdling screech that came from our trauma ward. In the near pitch black I was able to make out what had happened in the room. One of the nurses was laying on the ground with our patient on top of her, and there was what I realized to be blood splattered across the floor. In a panic I slammed the door shut and barricaded it with a gurney. I yelled to one of the officers what had happened and they came over and told me that we were all leaving at once. They handed me a handgun and told me to stay close and only use it if utterly necessary. It all happened so fast I wasn't even able to wait for Marx. I hope he is okay but I have my doubts that anyone left in that city was okay after what followed."
"I met up with a few more survivors from Zelenogorsk, one of them was a man who went by Mio who was police officer I saw briefly in Zeleno and his brother Drago. They were nice enough fellows and took care of me for our time together. We eventually had to part ways when I heard a distress signal on the radio and decided that they needed my help. Meanwhile Mio and Drago claimed it may be a trap and that we should stay away and fend for ourselves. Against my better judgment I decided to part ways with them and told them I would meet them again someday.
That hasn't happened yet and they ended up being right. People have changed and can no longer be trusted easily. They robbed my of my medical supplies and what little I had left. Now it was just myself and the cruel world that has become."
"I have begun to understand how the infection works, or rather how it takes its victims. It seems the virus can be transmitted similar to rabies via saliva and bodily fluids. In some cases even when people die, they can reanimate even without the primary infection method. I started my trials on some living and some no longer living, I'm sure i will have a breakthrough soon enough. I just need more testing and subjects."
"Wunderbar; I have come in contact with Mio once more. They have started a small group of survivors it seems, he informed me that Drago is no longer with us. He was shot down after killing an invader of a home they created. They are no longer inhabiting it and have moved to different goals. Mio's demeanor has changed drastically, i'm not sure if I should be worried yet, but perhaps they can help me with my experiments."
