Jack "J" Branson was born in Brixton, London to Joel Branson and Katheryn Branson. J's child hood was like any other. A white working class family, struggling for money, Little food and a poor education. During this time J got into a lot of trouble with the Law, ending up in Detention centres every few months due to his poor behaviour and urge for mischief. His father was sent to prison when J was 8. J didn't understand why but he was very close to his father
When J was 16, He joined the Paras. At this time in his life he was at his peak, he fit the bill. Fit, out of crime and making good money. The army was hard and gruelling, but he stuck through it and earned is beret.
Once his training was over he was sent back to His family to spend time with them until he was called back. His father had returned from prison on parole. This is when he found out what had happened... J's father had got mixed up in some issues with the Russian mafia over a shipment of Heroin that had been found and seized by Interpol. This meant that J's father had been arrested and sent to prison. Once J's fathers Parole was over he had to meet with the mafia in a country know as "Chernarus" which had ended their Civil war a few years ago and was starting their re-build. They boarded their Plane which would take them to Takistan. They;d have to get past the Chernarus boarder secretly due to the only flights in and out of the country itself were for military.
They were told to meet in a city called Zelenogorsk where the meeting would take place. J at this point was very nervous. His father was strong but at this point all his strength had started to wither away due to his age. But J was obliviously there as a body guard for his father. They met at a warehouse near a large radio tower. The area was very secluded. If something bad was to happen. no one would know, or find you for weeks.
As the meeting was happening there was large explosion. The mafia told J and his father that there was a large military base nearby and there way by test fires. But there it was again but following it was a loud scream coming from outside along with a growl like a large animal. A bear maybe?
J peaked through a crack in the wall. A man was eating a woman. J jumped back. Trying to catch his breath. The 3 men fled and took off in their car leaving J and his father stuck. They ran as fast as they could to the nearby city to hide in a house. The road was scattered with bodies, blood and guts everywhere. As they got to their hiding spot a man grabbed J's father and pulled him down some steps. injuring him. The man bit J's father. J was in shock. He didnt know how to act. The man got up and ran towards J. He was knocked down and hit his head on the concrete. But then he heard a gun shot. The Military had arrived but they weren't there for survivors. J was shot at as he got up and ran into a nearby bar. He was safe here. but he'd have to move. He then went unconscious due to the bleeding coming from the back of his head. J woke up a few hours later. It was dead silent. the only thing he could hear was the wind and distant screams, He sat there for a while. Wondering why he came here. what will he do next. and if he'll find the men who drove off leaving him and his father for dead.
