James Dermont was a lawyer before the outbreak; he decided to join his friend on a cruise for a holiday out with his wife. James heard a loud banging sound and before he could even try to figure out what was going on, the ship crashed and toppled over leaving James unconscious.
James awoke on the shore with no one in sight for the long stretches on the beach that laid on. He doesn't seem to recall what exactly happened apart from being on the phone with his wife on his way home from work.
James, then, checked his pockets for any belongings that may indicate where he is but he found nothing apart from the tickets he had from the cruise ship which had his name, his wife's name and his two companions names on them. James decided to go and search for his missing wife and friends.
First, James will need to find food and water supplies to keep his energy up for the journey ahead and so he headed along the nearest road to a nearby town in search of some answers. As he wandered on he noticed a road sign which he was unable to read as it was in a language not familiar to him but he knew that he was getting closer to some sort of a civilization.
James then saw a house in which he decided to check for supplies but unfortunately it was scrubbed clean. He decided to forfeit his search for supplies as the sun was going down and so he stayed in that house over night.
