Chad had a rich oil tycoon for a father. He saw how self centered and arrogant his dad was and didn't want anything to do with that. Chad started hunting deer when he was 14 years old and slowly began to enjoy time in the outdoors. He had grown up in mansions and serviced by butlers, but he decided he didn't want to live a life like that. He asked his father to hire outdoors men to teach him how to do things from starting a fire to cook, to making makeshift shelter out of their surroundings. After years of camping and hunting, Chad was ready to move off the grid. When he told his dad, his father shunned him from anything that has to do with the outdoors. Instead, his father sent him to Chernarus on a "vacation" to show him that living on the grid was better.
