Mason was born in the small town Corby north of London, UK, at 6 months him and his parents moved to New Mexico, USA due to a job offer his father Michael had received.
Mason was talented when it came to sports, but was not a big fan of studying. Every day he came home from school, and played football with his friends. He dropped out of high-school, and worked at a local fast-food joint to save money to pursue football, but was quickly kicked out of the house when his father got lung-cancer and his mother couldn't afford to pay for both Mason's living and Michaels hospital bills, at this time Mason started getting more and more into the politics of communism due to his, and his familys bad eceonomic state.
Mason also at the time found an advertisement to join a Private Military Contractor organization by the name of "Southgate". This PMC group was contracted by NATO to help out in peacekeeping operations internationally alongside the UN. The PMC group required no grades, and paid insanely good. Mason sent his application and was later the same day contacted for an interview, where he eventually was offered the job.
6 months of training later, Mason was being contracted alongside his squad to a small state bordering Russia by the name of "Chernarus". There had been big tensions there for a few years due to a civil war that broke out a year earlier. The mission went well, and he was flied back home early after 2 months, his check was paid out and he was living the american dream with tons of money to spare, at the same time his father got very ill and Mason decided he would use all the money he earned from Southgate to help with hospital bills. Mason and his family fell back into economic trouble, and eventually his father passed away due to the cancer spreading.
Mason became more and more a fan of the idea of communism again, and started going to communist rallies to learn more. His mother Clara had fallen into deep depression due to his fathers passing, and moved to the small Scandinavian country Sweden. Mason, a newly formed communist followed his mother, and they lived in Sweden for 3 years before Mason was offered to be contracted by Southgate back to Chernarus. Mason accepted the mission, and was flied back to Chernarus. The mission was supposed to take 6 months but spanned way longer than that, in fact 18 months went by. The peacekeeping was going well, and tensions started lowering.
It is now July, 2017. The month of origin, of what can be called an outbreak, epidemic or anything alongside those lines.
A farm north of Severograd had called in being attacked by rabid, crazy soldiers of CDF. Mason and his squad was called in to check on it alongside a squad of the UN. Upon arrival, there were nothing but a dead farmer completely eaten up to the bones.....
