When life really wants you dead, you either continue onward or you stand down long enough to never be able to stand up again. This is the philosophy that Kevin O’Brian has followed all his life. Born in 1988, Kevin discovered his passion for hunting in his earliest days. Raised by a single Father, Kevin had to adapt to a life of hardship.
Jason, Kevin’s father, was a forest guard. As such Kevin didn’t see much of his father, and was left to take care of himself at a very young age. The little time he was able to spend with his father, they spent in the woods exploring and hunting. The woods were the only place both of them felt at home, having as little social contact as they had, they were both seen as weird hermits that lived somewhere in the woods, coming out on rare occasions only to buy some supplies.
This made Kevin Paranoiac and distrusting of other people, for him the only person he could trust was his father. At the age of 18, Jason left without saying a word. Kevin had no idea where to look as the only place he knew were the woods. He hunted for days and nights in the same woods with hopes to find his father but it proved to be fruitless. The only parting gift Jason left was his beloved rifle. Kevin knew something bad had happened if his father left without his rifle.
For years Kevin continued his life in hopes of one day getting news from the townsfolk that Jason had finally returned. One day, long after Kevin had abandoned all hope, A letter from his father arrived addressed to him telling him to come meet him in Chernarus. Not even a day after getting the letter, Kevin had already packed provisions and hopped on a boat direction Europe. After arriving he traveled through the lands all the way up to Russia. Kevin had been hunting to sustain his needs once his provisions were depleted. One day as he was hunting, he came across an other human being. Even for someone with as asocial as him, he knew something was wrong with the man. It was his first contact with an infected but this wasn’t going to stop him, he had to find his father and for this, he had to survive and continue until he finally reached Chernarus.
