I am as bad as the worst, but, thank God, I am as good as the best.
Keith's early existence was set in the cheap and cheerful streets of Philadelphia; uninfluenced by the rugidness of his surroundings, Keith quickly developed a strong sense of self-discipline and caring nature for others. From a young age, he was affectionate and showed empathy to those in need - the needy being in no short supply.
Adolescence taught Keith that kindness is often taken for granted and that an important balance should exist between honour and ruthlessness. He took his life and moved away to the mid-west, where with no education, he became a skilled tradesman; specialising in carpentry and other woodwork.
At the age of 22, Keith was a seemingly cold and determined young man, focused only his own success and he strove for diligence above all else. However, that warm affection he possessed as a child was still present within him and it was vividly exposed by the love his life, Jen. Together, they became an invaluable asset to their small Ohio community, and they even adopted a 17-year-old homeless, down on his luck. Keith saw some of himself in this boy, who was full of potential but had been overcome by sloth.
Ultimately, it would be this boy who would bring Keith to Chernarus. There his new son, fascinated by Eastern European culture, studied at university. However, old habits die hard, and he wasted time and became too involved in the drinking culture in the Southern cities of Zagoria.
Where Keith and his young son will go next remains to be seen, they have befriended some Irishmen, who perhaps with a bit of luck, could help get him out of this begotten hellhole.
