before the outbreak he lived in Stockholm Sweden with his wife and family dog. Working for a large supermarket chain as store manager. His daughter was on a college trip to Utes, an island south of the coast of Chernarus. When all air travel seized due to the outbreak, he and his wife decided to go find their daughter themselves, leaving the family dog with close friends.
HIs wife however succumbed to the outbreak during the trip, having to be put out of her misery by Arthur himself.
Arthur's next priority, finally having arrived in Chernarus. With a sea between them, getting to his daughter. He is in search of someone with a ship, who can take him across. However, the cost of a spot on a ship is high. He'll have to work first.
Having travelled for months trying to get to Chernarus, Arthur is tired and depressed. And is starting to doubt whether there is even a remote chance of seeing his daughter alive. Arthur is running out of food, so his survival is taking priority over his quest.
Plans have started in Arthur's mind looking to the future for when he does find Mari. He also needs to learn survival skills, first aid and how to hunt your own food.
While there are plenty of abandoned houses, Arthur is also in search of a place where his daughter can live. So he'll have to become friends with a group of survivors to join their camp, or build his own
