Honda grew up in the fishing slums of Japan. He is an outstanding fisherman. All he eats is chicken, seafood and vegetables. You'll never see him eat anything else. He keeps a slim profile along with a straight mind. He doesn't care about drama nor does he partake violent acts. He believes in honor and doing whats right. He is very generous but don't take advantage of that.
Honda arrived to Chernarus on vacation. when people started to die and get back to attack him, He freaked out and began to lose his mind. He was lost for a very long time while trying to survive. He hid way up north near Tisy. On the anniversary of the "outbreak" he came out of hiding and began to search for other survivors.
