Asher grew up a only child to a middle class family on the outskirts of Bozeman, MT. The location suited him greatly in his youth, preferring to be on his own he wandered the nearby mountainside and had a deep passion for nature. He'd offer come home to a fuming parent wondering where he had been to for days on end. The reclusive nature only grew as family troubles started, until one day he ran away from home. Staying out on his own, Fox grew into himself a bit more. He learned a lot about himself, but also learned the struggles of being on his own. He eventually looked towards the military as a way to get by.
Asher spent a few years in the Army before suffering a head injury while on tour. Returning home he suffering from a partial amnesia. He couldn't remember the finer details of his life, only the most recent combat training. Having nothing else to go off of, he eventually joined the private security sector. Just as he was beginning to regain his memory fully, he took a job that required him to fly to the destination. He didn't expect for the plan to go down and to end up on Chernarus, and just his luck he'd regain his amnesia in the crash.
