Dr. Cody Adams is a volunteer of the International Red Cross, and a young but well-educated and trained surgeon who most recently served as an Emergency Room Specialist in Berezino Hospital. He also worked at the Star of Life Centers in Gorka and North Berezino. He was stationed there during the Civil War where he treated soldiers and civilians alike, when the IRC asked Dr. Adams to remain in Chernarus, offering to move his family to him. Cody accepted, having fallen in love with the hiking in the region during his off-time.
Cody and his family moved into the neighborhood between downtown Berezino and the Lumber Mill. His off time was spent hiking throughout the Province with his wife Alice, and daughter Summer. He spent one night a week at the Pub in his neighborhood with his translator, and live-in best friend Mikael. A majority of his time was spent at Berezino Hospital, though the IRC would occasionally move him around for temporary work when bodies were needed elsewhere.
Cody's request to evacuate his family when martial law was declared were denied. He knew where this unrest would lead (or so he thought) but the IRC didn't seem to share his sentiment. He'd devoted his life to practicing medicine in war-torn nations, but he promised Alice that she would never see it...
Alice was the first to go. A zombie broke down the door to the house, and she was taken after shoving 6 year old Summer away from whatever was shambling towards them. Next to fall was Mikael. He sacrificed himself- using his body to block the front door from an oncoming group of the undead, allowing Cody and Summer to escape out the back.
Then... Summer. Cody's pride and joy, his "sunshine," as he always called her. She was a tough cookie. He tought her how to fight, how to shoot and how to treat smaller scrapes and injuries. She celebrated her 7th birthday, 6 months after the outbreak. No 7 year old should have seen what she saw, heard what she heard. A year after the death of her mother, Summer finally feel- starvation and a fever took her young life. Immediately after burying his 7 year old daughter, the last of his family- his blood, Cody had enough. He grabbed a rope and walked to Berezino. In the home he'd lived in for 8 years, he slipped the rope around his next.
But something stopped him. A young girl- 18 at the oldest, limped into the house, lascerations across her left leg. Dr. Adams knew what needed to happen. Adreneline running through him, Dr. Adams ripped down the rope and took off his jacket. Cody made a tourniquet and stopped the bleeding. He carried the woman in his arms to the hospital and got to work. 6 hours later- internal bleeding had stopped and the leg was structurally repaired. He cared for her- Autumn was her name, and their interests were mutual. She had an interest in Psychology, he had an interest in medicine. She helped him through the loss of his family, her got her back on her feet.
Finally, she was ready to go off on her own. She insisted they go their seperate ways, but offered some parting advice for him- "help people. Live for others, live for the memory of your family."
And that's where Dr. Cody Adams' journey truly began. He decided to travel wherever he could to treat wounded survivors, make sure they had everything they needed to keep surviving.
