Brendan Myers was the first born of a young couple in Anchorage. Things were always rough around the house, between the lack of money and the extra work the young parents did to make up for it, stress was high. When Brendan was 15, his mother found out she was pregnant. By the time she found out she was having twins, things had more than reached a tipping point. Brendan's father took to drinking, and would occasionally take to threatening Brendan's mother and even the unborn children. Brendan always stood up for his unborn siblings, despite his mothers wishes and his fathers beatings. He didn't know how, but he knew he had to take care of them. Shortly before the twins were born, Brendan's father left. Later he found out he had died in a drunk driving accident on his way out of town. Despite everything, somehow Brendan was lost. He may have been an asshole, but Brendan's dad was always just a fact of life in his eyes. Like he'd never go away. Brendan's mother was clearly more effected by the event. She took to drugs shortly after the birth of the twins. Two years later she died of an overdose, long after Brendan and the twins moved in with their aunt and uncle. The old couple seemed more indifferent than anything else. Too busy in there own work to deal with the new additions to their home. Instead, Brendan took to raising the kids while balancing his classes at school. When he finally graduated, he decided to join the Army for the benefits it would give the twins. At 18, he was granted custody of the twins, and left for the Army as a medic. The twins stayed with a family Brendan had met when joining the Army, and grew up better off there than they could have anywhere else. Brendan was attached to the 101st division as a line medic, where he deployed to Iraq. He saw some pretty rough shit while he was there, but as a medic he did what he could to keep the morale up. Around the 7th month of his deployment his Humvee was hit with an IED. He was lucky to make it out with relatively minor burns as his only severe injury, but his buddy didn't make it. After the area was secured, the man with the detonator was severely wounded and brought to Brendan to receive aid. Brendan refused, instead still trying to save his comrades who were long gone. Unfortunately, a member of the press was present in the convoy, and didn't get the whole story. The story blew up, and it forced Brendan to be dishonorably discharged. After returning home, Brendan found it nearly impossible to find work. He couldn't support himself, let alone the kids. A few months into this, one of Brendan's friends from his old unit gave him a call. He was working with a PMC that he'd convinced to give him a shot. Infinitus was a good opportunity for Brendan. They helped with the twins, and he proved himself to the upper echelons. Due to this, the twins were taken somewhere safe when the outbreak hit. Now, Infinitus is sending Brendan into Cherno on a contract for some major company.
