My character's name is Dante Hazard, before the outbreak, I used to be a simple electrician although I am quite good at my job, never been fired just moved from company to company because of my skills. Funny thing... I was actually on a job when it all started. Some higher up sent me and a bunch of other guys from different companies around the globe to this place called 'Chernarus' to fix a bunch of downed power lines, I was coming all the way from Australia! Imagine that, going to a place where you can't even speak the language and be expected to fix power lines? Sounds stupid as hell doesn't it? I never really knew much about this place but they gave me a crash course, This is what I know. Turns out after the civil war Chernarus was heavily rebuilding its lands. There was some amazing investment in the place so I can guess that's why an international amount of electricians were sent. There was also coal, mining, and gas along with some others that I couldn't name because I hate lists but you get it. Chernarus was a growing powerhouse of a tiny country and we were sent to fix it up for them. They actually gave me a choice on this one job which I found a bit weird but a job was a job and I like work so I took it, there was quite a lot of money in the rebuilding the place surprisingly! I would have been paid quite handsomely if not for this outbreak.
The first time I saw one of those things they started just moaning at us... it was the early morning around the town which the locals called 'Kameka' so none of us couldn't see it clearly. Most of us were busy working but the few of us off-duty noticed him and kept telling him to get away from the fence, a guy named Gregory went to 'remove him' in his words. Although The minute he left the safety of the fence he got jumped by the thing. Next, we see a bunch of different cars and trucks just zooming past us from the other side of town. There were so many of those monsters. A guy called Freddie said they were zombies! A bunch of the 'zombies' came screaming down the street chasing civilians, that when I booked it out of there with a couple of the others. The local police tried to fight them off but I think they got overwhelming because the shooting stopped soon after.
A few of us got into the truck that we were using to get up to the power-lines. A Chinese guy called Zhao and A French one called Bastien. Anyway, Zhao was the driver and he actually managed to get us out of the mess but the problem came next. A bunch of the fuckers exploded out of a restaurant window, the horde flipped the friggin' car! I saw Bastien trying his best to punch them off him but Zhao and I just ran, nearly got there too. We got split up during the chaos when a bunch of APC's showed up with some military looking guys and just started shooting everyone. I dived down an alleyway and ran for my life. I'm still hoping in my heart of hearts that the others that we left behind at the transformer are alive... I doubt it though.
Turns out those military blokes did their job. Most of the zombies were dead and they started directing survivors away from the town towards the bigger cities. I went into a sort of refugee camp, nothing special just mainly felt scared as hell. Made some friends although they were more like: 'If someone stabs me you handle them and if I stab someone we both handle them' situations. A few gangs formed inside the supposed safety of the tents. It was quite you could say, in-tents haha... sorry. Anyway, we awoke one morning to a loud siren and people running. Turns out the zombies had breached the defensive line or something similar to that, there was a quick evacuation but I honestly didn't know if I was going to make it. To many people, it would have been a bloodbath had a single one of those fuckers made it through to us.
From there I tried like many to escape, a lot good that did me. The roads were packed! The second I saw it I left, that was a meal just sitting there waiting for the infected to come along in my opinion. So like many others, I dipped away into the countryside and tried my best to make it on my own. I do know I made the right choice. That bottleneck at the checkpoint didn't last very long, the already failing military presence had just crumbled against the waves, or so I heard.
Oh, what am I trying to accomplish? Nothing really... I'm not a heavy person who believes in remaking society or anything, I don't have a problem with the people who do but, I like the new world if I'm being honest. Let's just say... I want to keep it that way.
