David Hutson was born in Plainfield Indiana, to a farmer and his wife on their 4 acre farm in April of 1980. He enjoyed fishing and baseball as a child, and in his early teens was enrolled into a boy scout troop by his step father. David's progress with the troop was slow, but having grown up on the farm he had experience other boys did not, and learned basic survival skills with his troop. After graduating from high school in 1998 he pursued a position with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, and was ultimately accepted. The DNR positioned him to the Racoon Lake State Park, where he patrolled the forest and shoreline for lost hikers, campers and escapees from the minimum security penitentiary nearby. Racoon Lake was a popular area for teenagers, and over his 15 year tenure he watched the slow declined of the nature in the area due to littering and deforestation from a booming manufacturing industry. Dissatisfied with the high population, he yearned for a more secluded area of the Earth to watch over and in 2013 began travelling abroad to see more biospheres. In 2015 he met his wife Chelsea while hiking in Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada, and the two would continue to travel abroad together on a bucket list journey to see the world. In January of 2017 after spending 6 months in the humid swamps of Finland, the duo took a flight to a reemerging Chernaurus to see the revitalization of a war torn nation. David and Chelsea volunteered at a student summer camp, teaching English and survival skills for the dozens of students who lived nearby and were given accommodations by a private landowner who owned the camp. The state government had no intention of funding such activities, and David was happy to share his skills and look after a less populated area of the world. David and Chelsea would listen to the radio throughout their days, and would follow the political unrest in the region. When martial law was declared in May of that year, the camp was shut down to the public. David and Chelsea thought of leaving immediately in fear of war, but David insisted they stay to be safe from the growing unrest in public areas. As the infected spread south, the duo grew anxious and afraid, but again David insisted they would be safe. Their supplies dwindled and their radio batteries died. The morning of July 15th, Chelsea told David she wanted to leave and began to head south with a caravan of refugees to Elektrozavodsk never to be seen by David again. He stayed at the camp for 2 months before setting out to find resources and help the survivors of the outbreak, and has been wandering Chernaurus for almost 2 years looking for his wife, choosing not to leave the region until he finds the truth of her disappearance. Fearing the worst, his search continues to this day.
