Sergeant Eckert Steele, a U.S Marine Veteran was sent to Chernarus during the Civil War between Pro-Russian and Pro-Chernarussian Forces as an NCO for VALKYRIE, a PMC Organization tasked with helping the Pro-Chernarussian forces by HIGHCOM of VALKYRIE. Throughout his first tour of Chernarus, the outbreak started which ended with Eckert finding himself unconsciouss, waking up a few hours later.
After being separated from his Platoon, Eckert found himself alone in the small town of Bogatyrka just North of Myshkino where he'd stumble upon a group of Survivors known as simply 'Goblins' and they'd move on to train and train until Steele was satisfied. He'd member an Alias and soon business would start right back up, continuing to provide security and other opportunities to those unfortunate survivors stuck in the South-Zagorian province.
Throughout his time in Chernarus, Steele met up with two fellow gentlemen of familiar backgrounds; Erskin Mannix and Michael Dunning. Through heated conversations and multiple days of working together, the Trio eventually reform VALKYRIE, The Private Military Company deployed to Chernarus previously.
