Chevy Hughes was born and raised on his families ranch in southern Alabama. Chevy's father employed solely illegal immigrants which Chevy was tasked with watching during the day so they wouldn't steal any equipment. This gave Chevy a taste for controlling people in a weaker position than him. The ranch was left to Chevy after his father dies and was quickly expanded by Chevy into a small empire that crossed the state of Alabama. When the apocalypse began, Chevy was safe in his network of armed guards and "rescued" civilians, which he used for slave labor in exchange for safe keeping. Eventually his empire fell apart when the military seized his property to feed their men. Chevy fought against the soldiers but lost. One of Chevys right hand men offered to take Chevy back to his homeland, as he recognized Chevy as a person of influence and thought perhaps Chevy could reorganize his home town with the remaining men and guns. Chevy boarded his yacht and sailed for his right hand mans native land...Chernarus.
