Connor is a journalist for the Boston Globe. He graduated from UMass Boston in the 90S. The year after graduating he married his high school sweetheart.
Connor was assigned to write a story about the tensions between Chernorussian/Russians that helped propel his career. Years later he was asked to travel to Chernarus to write a story about the rebuilding war-torn country. After spending weeks in the country, his story changed. Strange military movements and talks of disease became his major focus.
He was traveling to a remote village to interview someone who claimed to have seen an infected villager taken by a group in hazmat suits. When he arrived in the town the witness was missing, along with the rest of the village. When the outbreak truly took over, Connor was being escorted back to a safe zone. The convoy was overrun by infected, his escorts were killed by infected a few days into their travels. Connor managed to escape and has been surviving alone ever since.
