Smith Smitheson was your regular fella, with a regular job, but very much into theater and music.
He started traveling around the world after he managed to sell his regular business for an amount of money sufficient for a regularly comfortable life, and took a liking into eastern Europe. He visited every single country east of Germany and west of China but, while flying to Chernarus (while listening to the entire soundtrack of Les Miserables on his AirPods) his plane's engine failed, and the airplane crashed into a building in Chernogorsk. He somehow survived the crash, but the ordeal had left his brain permanently damaged, making him forget his past life, and convincing him he found himself inside the universe of Les Miserables. Furthermore, his personality was split into 6, with each representing one character from the musical: Javert, Jean Valjean, Mario Pontmercy, Enjolras, Mr. Thenardièr and the Bishop of Digne. He now travels the lands of Chernarus, switching his personalities around in random moments, and acting accordingly with each of the characters' characteristics.
