Lars is a businessman from Denmark, who represents a large Tractor manufacturing business. He had traveled all over Eastern Europe to sell Tractors and make deals. He had come to Zelenogorsk to do business with the local farmers, when the apocalypse happened. He had no way to get home, and was forced to live in the streets of Zelenogorsk and steal food to survive. He slowly learned to fight off walkers and escape bad guys. For a while he hid in the buildings and houses surrounding the city, but he slowly ran out of food and had to move into the center of the city, in order to survive. While hiding out around the houses, he met Drake, who he teamed up with, to survive together. Safety in numbers.
