After the civil war, Nathan went to do a few jobs out in the ocean protecting some cargo ships from pirates. He then came back to Chenarus when Martial law was declared to protect the owner of the biggest mining companies. After being stopped by a CDF checkpoint on there way to a quarry near severograd, they ended up taking some old dirt roads and noticed a few CDF soldiers come out of the woods. One of the people from the convoy went up to go speak with them. Then the 2 soldiers jump on him and started eating him. In panic the convoy started firing at the 2 CDF soldiers. They didn't know what was going on . . . They then moved on to the quarry, and held a position there for backup that never showed up. A large group of these infected came out of the woods and started attacking the PMC camp. Nathan started running for the tree line after taking out multiply infected. His goal now is to find any survivors that are still out there and help to the best of his ability.
