Charisma at its most refined. Veronica Lovejoy has lived her whole life as caricature and that definitely shows. Her attitude
towards people is friendly but shallow. She treats those around her like a politician attempting to win votes. She is accepting
of all peoples of all religions. In her eyes, everyone is equal and deserves to be treated as such. She uses her beauty to
get into people's heads. During her time on the road with her husband, Duncan. Critics often assumed she was some sort of
puppet-master. Manipulating her husband until his untimely death.
Veronica was born to a Yugoslavian family in Belgrade in 1989. She was sent to an orphanage shortly after. When she was a year old,
an American man by the name of Clifton Charles adopted her and brought her to the United States. Due to the failing of the Soviet
Republic of Yugoslavia, it was quite easy to falsify papers. In no time, Zophie Narjek became Veronica Charles. She was quickly
assimilated into the Charles' family. She spent most of her early life in the small Bavarian-style town of Leavenworth, Washington
Her earliest memory is listening to her "mother" sing her to sleep. She was never the wiser of her true origins.
She lived on a large estate and went to a private school with her three sisters. The Charles family were seen as the nobility of their
community. Their donations have kept the school afloat for years and both her parents and teachers were willing to do whatever it
took make Veronica a celebrity. She was abused both physically and mentally when she stepped out of line, so she got really good
at lying. Eventually she got so good that she even convinced herself that she was telling the truth. She was a voracious reader who studied
many historical leaders, carefully noting the strengths and weaknesses of each. She also developed an intense interest in religion
which was partially caused by her inability to form deep and lasting relationships with other people.
After she graduated high school, she took a small fortune in gold from the estate and ran away. She went off to college in Canada
where she met her future husband, Duncan Lovejoy. He was a very charismatic gentleman as well. He wore a suit during all social
gatherings, yet it somehow didn't feel out of place. He quickly fell for her and they finished school together. He became a lawyer and
she got a degree in creative writing. They became quite popular in their upper-middle class peers and they started a small
community group that grew quickly in popularity. Eventually they lead a group away from their small town. They bought a farm in
Saskatchewan and started a commune. They liked to say there were no leaders but truthfully Duncan ran pretty much everything.
When they got married, she became the voice in his head. With her help the Farm reached around 70 members. Due to how
secluded the commune was, not many people decided to stay for the long haul.
In an attempt to garner more members and publicity for Veronica's newest book, they took a trip to Europe. They toured for a while
visited from London to Moscow. They were reaching the last leg of their journey and about to head home when the reached
Chernarus. They got trapped inside the country.
Veronica and Duncan in Paris on their Tour
Duncan and Veronica started their own community away from large settlements. They started a new "Farm" near one of the tributaries
of the Burnaya river in the Central Oblast of Chernarus. They found a few former members of the ChDKZ that were really helpful in
truly setting up the camp and bringing it to its full glory. They called it Velká Svatyně. Everything was going quite well. They had
fresh clean water, a working farm and fruit trees. It seemed quite peaceful for the first few years. Eventually word got out that
a "Chedaki camp" was up river and asettlement full of former NAPA soldiers and their families decided to stage raids on the camp.
They executed Duncan when he tried surrender.
The final straw was an explosion in the greenhouse that lead a horde of infected down from the north. They ransacked the entire
compound and while a few managed to make their escape and head west, most didn't make it. Veronica decided to head west in hopes
of finding refuge somewhere in south Zagoria.
