Chapter 1: How it all started
When I first arrived here with my family, we were unaware of what was happening or what was going to happen. We had to leave the United States because of I was in pretty big trouble with the federal government which I will go on to explain. We settled in and I guess you could say we were living an alright life for the first few years of us being in the country. We never really had a problem with money, back home my job paid pretty well and I was able to take a good portion of that money with us when we hired a smuggler to take us to Chernarus so we could hide out and lay low for a few years. At around the start of 2009, A war broke out between 2 political groups because they had different political ideologies. I tried not to get involved in this, my wife and I stayed in our isolated cabin up north, although it was only a matter of time until someone found us and we had to leave. We tried everything to get out of the country but it simply was not possible. We stayed on the move for about 3 years, luckily I was able to grab my guns, food, water and camping supplies before we were forced to leave our home. Everyday we setup camp in the woods, I had to teach my wife how to shoot and we would split the night watch in half each night where one of us were armed and would watch around the camp and the other one would sleep for a few hours, then come morning we would move to a different location. During these days, we were lucky... Lucky that before we left our home in the States, I grabbed all my weapons, ammo and attachments including suppressors, scopes, magazines, etc... The suppressors became super useful with keeping our location unknown when we would hunt or have to kill the wild life of Chernarus, whether it was in self defence or to get us some food to keep us going. Lets just say this point in our lives was not pleasant but by far was not the worse. After the war ended in late 2011, we moved back into our isolated cabin and lived a normal life, I the life I had back in the states up and changed myself, got a better job and although it didn't pay as much all that matter was that my family was happy.
Chapter 2: The Infection
Lets make a fast forward from 2011 to 2018, My wife and I had been trying to start a family but unfortunately my wife was not able to. We were living a peaceful life and I cant say that I didn't enjoy it, but it was very different compared to were I grew up. One night we were listening to the radio news to hear that a strain of the M-H1N1 was spreading in Russia, with myself knowing a bit about the H1N1 Flu, we started to be extra careful with what we did and who we were around to make sure we did not get infected with this. After around 5 months of staying alive and being very cautious we noticed that the dead started coming back to life and we did not understand what was going on but amidst all this confusion, the citizens of Chernarus started rioting causing destruction and disorder within the region which made the situation at hand spin out of control, I call this point in time "The Downfall of Chernarus". We ended up being able to hold out until winter, these infected people are something never seen nor expected by mankind. It simply did not make any sense that these human beings that used to be people could somehow take a full mag of 5.66x45 NATO to the chest and still be walking, The only way you could put them down was by puncturing the brain whether it was from a sharp object or a bullet. We were getting close to the winter and we had to stock up food for the winter to make sure we did not run out and starve. My wife passed away from a gunshot wound before the winter even started, one day while we were hunting a group of scavengers tried to take what we had, they walked up and shot my wife in the back in which I spun around, dropped on my back and shot all 3 of the scavengers with my Suppressed Sig Sauer 1911, I then made sure all of them were dead but by that time it was already to late for me to save my wife. They shot her in the in the back of the lungs, she had a sucking chest wound. There was absolutely nothing I could have done to save her, I felt helpless and lonely. Her last words to me before she stopped breathing were "Live on for me, you can beat this world. I love you and will always be watching over you and keeping you safe." I made her a promise that I would do so, it was on this day where I reverted back to my old self, the stone cold contract killer that got us in this mess in the first place. I made it my job to cleanse Chernarus of all of the evil and met my business partner and one of my best friends while on the road called Jude, we called ourselves "The Contractors". a bit later down the road we met a fella named Jim, He is similar to us and seems to believe in the same thing as we do. We travelled with Jim and he helped us with business for a few weeks, He ended up joining along with us and has been helping us since. Me and Jude always treated contracts as a challenge on who could complete a contract better than the other.
