My characters name is a former Captain Benjamin Williard that was a senior operative in a reorganized SOG, Studies and Observations Group. This groups major objectives were to conduct a limited war and disrupt enemy supply lines with minimal equipment and support. and was sent into South Zagoria during the initial conflict with Russia. Initially tasked with the assassination of corrupt officials in the Chernarussian Defense Forces that were siphoning of supplies to Russian and Chedaki elements. Williard became increasingly accustomed to the terrain of South Zagoria and learned how to blend in and disappear in the forests and the mountains. The astounding success of these missions won him the favor of the higher echelons of the Studies and Observations Group which then asked him with winning the hearts and minds of the Chernarussians north of Stary Sobor. Captain Williard organized remnant Chedaki elements and made them into a guerilla force to inflict a toll on invading Russian troops. His work was highly successful and helped achieve a Chernarussian/NATO victory in Russia's initial incursion into South Zagoria.
Upon the initial contact between Russian and Chernarussian troops over the base in South Zagoria, Captain Williard was tasked with doing a solo recon of the area to report about the mysterious attacks occurring in the northern part of South Zagoria. After, the outbreak intensified and US/NATO troops became present in South Zagoria Capt. Williard made his way South due to a loss of radio communication with his support, "Almighty". Regrouping with NATO troops in Chernogorsk, Williard was assigned a new mission, which was to eliminate a rogue Colonel of the CDF, that had gone missing after the encircling of Zelenogorsk and had recently surfaced in the remote western regions of South Zagoria with a former Chedaki guerilla group. Williard was tasked with infiltrating the camp and calling in an airstrike through "Almighty" to completely wipe out the Colonel and his Chedaki element. Williard spent the better part of two weeks gaining the trust of the rogue elements to confirm the Colonel's identity and was about to contact "Almighty" for an airstrike when an enormous shockwave rocked through South Zagoria and radio contact ceased with any NATO assets in the area.
The weather quickly turned and Williard was forced to retreat into the mountains to the West6 in search of deer and survivors in huts across the wilderness. Williard regained contact with "Almighty" late in the winter of 2017 through the use of the long-range antenna at Green Mountain and was secured for extraction just to the Northwest of Zelenogorsk in an abandoned military camp that was well away from any major infected areas. With radio contact reestablished Williard was waiting for a Marine UH-1Y Venom being deployed from a joint CDF and NATO helicopter base on the island of Utes to the South. Just as the bird was flying over an abandoned military research base to the south of Zelenogorsk a mysterious truck opened fire on the helicopter and brought the helicopter along with Captain Williard's hopes of escape plummeting to the earth in a dramatic fireball.
Williard in loss of radio contact made his way into the remote northern communities of South Zagoria, he supported in search of supplies and any means to stay alive and functional as a lone unit. With minimum supplies and no radio contact for almost the past year, Williard has been forgotten by the US military due to the outbreak and has also become stranded within himself searching for the reason of this catastrophe and has gone to searching through the villages he once supported in search of the lost souls of these towns and the source of the infection that has turned such a beautiful country into a wasteland.
