Samuel “Sammy” Corbett was on was on a mission for the Canadian Coast guard when the outbreak happened. His ship was quickly overtaken by infected members, and Sammy grabbed a life jacket and jumped over-bored, thinking he had a much better chance against the ocean. Sammy floated along with the tide until he eventually drifted to shore in Chanarus. He went to find civilization, hoping the infection had not escaped his boat. Horrified when he found infected in this unfamiliar country, he decided to find others who were still alive and preserve what was left of humanity.
