George Hemmingsworth is a 63 year old boxing coach from Detroit, Michigan who was on a trip around Europe looking for new talent when the outbreak occurred. He is 6 feet tall and weighs 173 pounds, and tends to wear t-shirts and sweat pants. George was single all his life and lost his mother at a young age, his father was the one to get him into boxing but died when George was only 18. He lived on his own and continued training living for the memory of his late father. George fought in the ring from the age of 23 to 28, and in his time held the title as the WBC light heavyweight champion. However, his career was destroyed after a near fatal blow in his second defense match. George was bedridden for almost a year after that fight and never fully recovered. George has memory problems and thanks to this he struggled getting back on his feet after his recovery, but by the age of 32 he put together his own boxing gym to train the next generation of champions. After about 20 years and not producing any promising fighters, George decided to roam the world in search of his next champion. He started out heading south and went down to Brazil where he heard rumors of an energetic looking diamond in the rough, only to be utterly disappointed with what he had seen. George began working on his own intuition and searched anywhere he could to find his student. After 10 years, George was nearly about to give up until he heard of Chernarus, his first thought told him that was where his dreams lay. George packed his bags and began the drive to his assumed promised land. He found a place to stay in Novigrad while he was searching. George was finally at his wits end and was preparing to leave, but that was when the outbreak happened.
