Kennith McLellan was born to American missionaries preaching in Chernarus on January 18th, 1996. He grew up in Polana and became good friends with many of the kids in the town. On the weekends he and his friends would run into the woods and play out war games. When Kennith turned 7 he found an old tape camera and began to make short films. He would take it into the woods during their war games and create mini-documentaries of their own private wars. In 2008, the church his parents were representing was disbanded and they were forced to move back to America. His last day in Chernarus was met with tears from all his friends as they understood that Kennith would likely never return. They’d seen their friend die many times in the woods, but this death was real and agonizing for kids only 12 years old. Upon Kennith’s return to America he joined the Boy Scouts of America to allow himself to spend time in the woods. In the organization he learned basic survival skills and further pursued his love of making documentaries. It was here that he was instilled with the passion to help others. In high school he spent much of his time volunteering at local homeless shelters. He applied to Full Sail University and completed his associate's degree in 2 years on May 15th 2017. He started following events in Chernarus in early 2017. When he heard about martial law following the attacks on the Chernarussian/Russian marriage, he decided to use all his money to travel there and document the turmoil. With no warning, Kennith bought a plane ticket into Miroslavl and snuck over the western Chernarus border. He arrived in Chernarus on July 5th, 2017 and began traveling towards Polana. He arrived in Polana on July 10th, 2017 to find many of his friends gone. One friend, Stanislav, had stayed behind and gave him a brief overview of what had been happening. All his other friends had fled to Elektro in an attempt to find a boat away from the mainland. Kennith called his parents that night and told him about what was happening. They begged him to come home, but he firmly told them “I have to make the world understand what is happening here. If what Stanislav told me is true, then no one has any idea what is happening. I’ll see you guys in a few months. I promise.” That was the last contact he ever had with his parents. Kennith moved northward towards Severograd however he never reached the city. Within a few days he realized how dangerous it had become and was forced to attempt escape. Due to the large number of infected between him and any reasonable route out of Chernarus, he found an abandoned farmhouse and barricaded it. He was able to get a radio working and listened to the sounds of war over the tinny speaker. With each day Kennith experienced the loss of civilian, military, and modern life. On July 28th, the radio went silent and after a few days Kennith decided to leave his farmhouse to find his way to the coast.
