My character's name is Jim Tikkle.
He is from the UK and grew up in the northern countryside. He did a lot of outdoor activities growing up such as mountaineering, shooting, climbing, camping etc. it was at 17 after spending 3 years as part of the scouts he decided to join the army.
He spent 2 years in Cyprus as a UN peacekeeper with the British Army where he saw little to no combat. He was then transferred as 1 of 200 UN peacekeepers to Miroslav in an attempt to de-escalate the on goings in the region.
While stationed at a hospital near a checkpoint his party came under attack and several of his friends were either shot in the crossfire or taken by zombies attracted to the firing. He took a shot while trying to flee the building before a stairway fell down on top of him. When he awoke under the rubble, he struggled free to find he was the only one left.
The checkpoint he was stationed at was abandoned and the nearby town swarming with the dead. Now he had 2 goals. Find any surviving NATO or UN and survive himself.
