My name is Scout Ridgerunner. I live here with my father and after the love of my life was slaughtered in our own home. I don't really care to meet new people, as long as you don't threaten me or my father's life then you are good with me. I don't care for the government, never was a big fan of politics either, not really into the whole “impose our will onto the weak and feeble”. If it was up to me I would kill all who support the old government and live in a world of small communities with a centralized trade. I am a humble man and don't seek to hurt anyone as long i am left alone and no one tries to intrude on my life. I am an outdoors man who is in his element when i am in the woods in the mountains. I was married and lost my wife to a thief. After i killed that man i never wanted to have to go through that pain and grief ever again in my life. I come here to be in my element and do what I can to help the people here and do my part to humanity and save who i can. I also love to hunt and fish and hiking in the mountains, so living in a society where this is normal and common for everyone to do makes me feel at home. Before the outbreak I was living in the states with my wife who I loved very much, she and I were two peas in a pod. I couldn't think of a world without her in it. I worked a steady automotive job at a gas station in our small home town. One night I had to work a little later than usual for a customer who needed there vehicle back that night. My wife called me around 1900 saying she was going to wait for me to come home, i told her only 20 more minutes. One hour later I was on my way home and I got a phone call from my wife, but I couldn't hear anything, it was silent. Then I heard a gunshot and a woman's scream. I sped home as fast as i could and saw the man running out of my house as soon as i pulled up. I didn't know whether to chase him or to find my wife. I went inside and found my wife dead in our living room. In my rage i destroyed the house and went after the man who did. Once I found him i beat his face in with a pipe! I was not right after that, i thought of suicide but i didnt have the balls to go throught with it. I received a letter from my dad about his trip he was making to Chernarous. I said fuck it, i would join along. I met up with him a week later and we decided to start a new and take our lives on a differant path of just living off the land. Little did we know the horrors of what we got ourselves into going to war zone which is Chernarous.
