My character was born and raised near the mainland of Chernarus, on a small island called Utes. The population on the island was very small and therefore I had to travel to Chernogorsk to go to school and work every day. My family mainly consisted of farmers, but I didn't want to be like them and be stuck on an island for my whole life. When I had saved up enough money from the few day jobs I had in Chernogorsk, I decided to leave Utes for good. I rented a small apartment near the factories in Chernogorsk, it was cheap and not very nice, but better than living on a damn island. One day while I was cleaning one of the factories near the centre of the town, I heard screaming coming from the streets, a middleaged lady was yelling "людоеды, людоеды!" (cannibals, cannibals!), at first, I thought she was crazy, but then I decided to take a look outside, when I reached the big gate to the factory I could immediately see the horrors happening, it wasn't just 1 or 2 people doing this, there were at least a 100 people running around crazy. All I could do was just watch while people were getting eaten alive not even 50 meters from where I was standing.
It's now about 600 days since the outbreak happened, I have no idea how it started, I've met a few people while I've gathered leftovers from local stores, gun shops and medical centres, but they are all gone now. I've tried to stay away from the infected, I sleep in my apartment at day and go out at night to see if I can find more leftovers in this wasteland this town has become. I'm 38 years old now and I think I'm going crazy, I haven't spoken to anyone in the last 3 months or so, I just want this to end, I want my friends back, I want everything back, maybe I should start going out at day and see if I can find other survivors.
