Eli, the youngest of five siblings was born to Eugene and Elaine Roth on January 8th, 1977. Growing on up on a corn farm in the small town of Longview Alberta, Eli was never short of hard labor.Having 4 older siblings Eli was used to constantly being harassed. From a young age Eli learned to fight, and he was real good at it. This coupled with his tall height and above average physique would lead to him refereed to as the toughest man in town. His natural fighting skill and poor temper would eventually become his downfall. By age 18 he landed himself in prison due for assaulting a officer. While in prison he swindled his way onto a wildland firefighting crew. While on the crew he learned valuable felling skills that would land him a career outside of prison. Wood is running low in the Mountains of Alberta so his company has been buying acres of forest from the Chernarus Government. Eli is sent to Chernarus to run the felling crew for his current company. Unfortunately he will be spending more time in Chernarus then anticipated.
