Born into an Nationalistic and heavily religious Irish family Flynn was pushed very early on towards a life of extremism. Raised in a suburb of Dublin by his mother and father he was the only one of their 3 male children not to be pushed towards a life within the Catholic priesthood. With both his older brothers already set along that path and his sister taking a more traditional role in the home Flynn's parents saw more value in guiding him towards a life of political violence. His father a proud and agressive supporter of the IRA and uniting Northern Ireland with the Republic was well versed in the tactics and necessary skills for such a life and so Flynn didn't go to school like all the other children of his age instead he learned with his father from the moment he was big and strong enough to aim a gun. The first 7 years of his life were wpent with his mother though. A compassionate woman even if a little radical she taught the boy about Irelands history and the british oppression that had plagued their society and still heald greedily onto Northern Ireland. Teaching him to read and write while indoctrinating him through his early days until it was time for him to tail his father to meetings and discover the darker side of what his future would hold.
At this time around the age of 7 most of Flynn's time revolved around simply following his father, listening and watching learning what he could about the inner workings of the group he would dedicate much of his life too. As he grew older though and passed the age of 10 his role became much more active, taking part in smuggling weapons and other contraband across the Northern Irish border even learning how to shoot with his father in the rural farmlands away from the city he called home. As he grew older his role in smuggling became far less active, having lost his innocent appearance to adolecence he evolved into a much more thug like role.
Flynn would carry out threats and blackmail those that opposed the IRA and their allies in the fight for a united Ireland. Beatings were the most common at this stage, reminding people of why it was a bad idea to cross them but this evolved quickly. Beatings became stabbings and then stabbings became shootings until it was hitting the point of full blown assassination plots. Executions of political oppenents became common practise and killing far too easy.
Flynn was good at what he did and while he tried to hold onto the humanity and compassion his mother had showed him in his early years life was just easier when he ignored his conscience, especially in his line of work. However, eventually all people are caught though and for Flynn this happened to be in the failing of an attempted assassination of a member of the british royal family on a visit to Dublin. Flynn's father and a few other members were intercepted on their way to a public event and a firefight broke out leaving 3 soldiers and all the IRA members besides Flynn dead or captured as Flynn was able to lose the soldiers in the city due to his advanced knowledge from his many years roaming its streets.
A fugitive now Flynn had little choice but to leave and leave he did. Heading east and away from the kind of countries he would find himself getting deported from he eventually found himself in Takistan where he worked for a drug lord for a while. Doing the mans dirty work until he found someone else willing to pay more, building a name for himself in the area.
By the time the outbreak began Flynn had become a seasoned mercenary, working for whoever would give him the most money to do so. This lifestyle was how he ended up in Chernarus, hired by a fearful Oligarch who had pissed off the wrong Chernarussians. Now that the outbreak is in full swing and civilised society is long gone Flynn finds the world suits him better. However, having left Ireland in such a rush he often misses it, wondering what came of his family after his departure how how the country is since the outbreak, whether it even still exists. While Flynn often considers trying to make his way back there the idea of finding the country in ruins like Chernarus is now is enough to keep him in place.
Following a disagreement with a member of the group Flynn has been staying with over the past month, that resulted in a violent altercation, Flynn has once again gone on the road. This time, however, the religious Irishman is attempting to refind the God he forsook in the quest for a united Ireland and the years following his exodus. The mistaken faith he had put in a misguided group is now clear to him and his years of indoctrination have quickly unravelled revealling to him the true extent of his past infidelity towards the house of God. With the wool lifted from his eyes the ex IRA member now sees the path he must take as if it were bricked out before him.
Recently having met a travelling priest, Father David, Flynn is now beginning to re-establish himself as a man of God forgetting and forgiving the enemies of the past and repenting his sins through service to God. Finding his footing in teh new profession the Irishman is helping his new companion to spread the word of God to all those that wish to hear it as well as planning to offer Church Sermons along with other religious services to those in need of it.
