Well my character lived in Ireland all his life reared in Cork by his single mother. James had a rough time as a teenager, he got bullied in school a lot, so at the age of 17 he joined the Irish Defense Force as a medic, he trained in medical school for 2 years all the while doing operations and missions with the army.
James came to Chernarus looking for a job as a nurse in Berezino, at the time he was 20 and he lived there for about a year before the outbreak, all his family were either killed or turned to the undead. Some day he hopes to get back to Ireland and find some possible people he used to know like old friends, that is probably his main goal coming out of the outbreak.
He is a skilled rifleman as he was in the Army Ranger Wing (Irish Special Forces) He was also a Regimental Sergeant Major.
He is 22 years of age, from Ireland he moved to chernarus at the age of 20 and he had a job working as a nurse in Berezino, when the outbreak first started he was helping alot of people who were ill. No one knew what caused the outbreak or where it came from but all the medical staff tried their best to help but nothing worked, eventually the people who had died from the virus came back to life in a "walking dead" like form, the whole of Chernarus went to shit and people were panicking, some went in to hiding, some went out and tried to fight but most were unsuccessful. The walking dead population has gone down since survivors have found ways and means of stopping them with weapons like guns, knifes or axes for example. But there is still thousands of them roaming the land. Thanks to his time in the army, he grew strong and gained alot of knowledge on how to survive in certain situations, he learned how to shoot and use alot of equipment that normal civilians wouldnt know how to use.
He has medical experience as he worked in a hospital back in Ireland for 2 years when he was in college. He trained with doctors and nurses and was almost complete his course.
After some time in Chernarus he has started to turn insane, he gets random thoughts of death and killing, he is still good in a way, but he started to think that being good gets you killed, after experiencing situations where being good didn't offer any help.
