My name is Colt Snyder. Growing up in California all I ever wanted was a quiet life. My favorite thing to do would be to hide away and pretend I was somewhere else. The jostle of city life was always too much for me. I was born a bastard son and my mother had no love for me. In her eyes I was a burden, another spit in her face from the universe. She would strike me often when she felt the need to let her anger out. It was never quiet....until she was gone. One morning I awoke and she had disappeared. She abandoned me. I made a life for myself out there over the years after being hired on at a cannery. I made it with nothing but my own grit, dreading the day I would her from that awful woman again. I had come to hate her and anyone who even slightly reminded me of her. I was still uncomfortable. City life was no life at all. After thinking about it for countless hours I realized what I needed to do. I had to find my mother and make things quiet again. I searched through documents and gained information through numerous people to no avail. I still didn't know where she was, until one night an emergency broadcast came on tv about some kind of outbreak in a small place called Chernarus. The screen was mainly focused on the reporter but, you could still see some of the crowd. A familiar face was in the background, a tall woman with black hair and blue eyes. It was my mother, I'm sure of it. I had to get there. After exchanging money with numerous dirty hands I managed to secure a ride on a small recreational aircraft into the country. I'm going to find her and create the quiet life I've always wanted.
