Tad was working in Chernarus as a privately hired Woodland Ranger, overlooking the forest lands North of Kamenka. He lived in Kamenka with his daughter, Mary, who he has not yet been able to locate since the infection broke loose. When the infected came they hit Kamenka hard, he and three of his friends held up there for a long while until they were forced to flee and were separated. Tad fled North, searching for his daughter at her nearby school where she should have been when the outbreak occurred. He's still searching for her presently.
