Nathan, A New Zealand tourist, was on his yearly trip to different countries around the world, where he would mostly visit northern areas for hunting trips. He had visited Chernarus before in the past but this time seemed different. Nathan was a teacher before the outbreak, he enjoyed hunting during his countries school holidays, moving from continent to continent to test his skills on variety of game. Heading into Chernarus to hunt the local deer, which posed to be quite an easy task as there was no lack of deer stands and hunting lodges in the area for rest, was his first trip in a long while. This time he visited, it seemed he came at a bad time as new outlets and tv stations kept going on about a war he had no interest in. Sadly for him, he did not pay enough attention to social media or media in general. unless he was in his own country, he tried to avoid the politics of places he was in.
Around the 12th of July, Nathan found himself amidst a blood bath at the hunting lodge he stayed at south of Novy Sobor. Two individuals he may have called friends once, had bullet holes to the head, blood dried on their jackets as well as around their mouths. he was out hunting for almost 3 days with a tent in the middle of a forest slightly to the West of where he stayed, where everything was rather quiet, however he was sure if something extreme happened he would have been radio'd.
He found himself staying in this place for 10 days, surviving off cans of beans and the meat he got from 1 deer kill. having hunting knowledge also meant he had knowledge in outdoor survival, drying hides, skinning, gutting, butchering. anything to do with outside, he likely knew it. on the 22nd, Nathan headed out towards Novy Sobor where he found nothing but broken down vehicles and a lot of people, but they were not people, at this point, they shambled around, blood coating their clothes as well as faces. He assumed, quite fast, and infection must have ensued the Chernarus region.There was likely no chance of his return home, he was destine to survive here, alone, forever.
heading down south to the coast where he hit a small tree line looking over Prigorodki, this is where his story began. his only goal, survive until help arrives.
