→ Twenty years of age.
Erika Schmidt was a very loud and not very closed-off type of person, she definitely enjoyed being the centre of attention. Erika Schmidt, wherever she went, seemed to always radiate some happiness off to others around her. She made sure that not a single soul was unhappy. She believes that everyone should be given a second chance since everyone can always change, her goal was to make everyone smile. Her family consisted of Alice Schmidt ( Mother ), Günter Schmidt ( Father ) and her two-year-old brother, ( Hans Schmidt ). Alice Schmidt was from England and was born and raised there, her father, Günter Schmidt was a native from Germany, he was a Doctor in the military. That was actually the whole reason, Erika Schmidt had gotten into this mess. Erika had to move to Chernarus, due to her father being called there for an S.O.S private case. Erika was always very curious about what her father did while he was away at work, he'd always talk like he had just seen the dead rise back up again! Something so silly... Overall, Erika had a good relationship with both of her parents and not to mention her baby brother. Erika had lived in a very closed off part of Chernarus, where no one could hear if you screamed. There were multiple Medical Testing Unites (M.T.U) for Daddy's workplace. Erika had walked past one of them once, she had heard a bunch of groans, maybe it was just some injured patients. Erika's life had been going quite great so far, she had been accepted to a Medical School in Cherno, the capital! However, her father wasn't too keen on this, he didn't want her to move to the capital. However, after a long time of arguing, they eventually accepted the fact that she had to move one day or another. She'd make frequents back home to Cherno, until one day... She had heard groaning in her family's barn, she was confused, maybe her brother was just ill? She had opened the doors and URRRGH! What she had realized made her stomach turn upside down... Something.. it had been swallowing every last drop of what seemed to be... t-the remains of her baby brother. Erika had seen this and screamed in horror! She didn't know her way back to Cherno, she ran and ran as much as her body could allow her. She made a promise to herself, no more would she be that happy girl, no more would she be that girl who everyone could rely on for a smile. She made sure that every bit of her life could be closed off and be private. She strands the streets of Chernarus, eyeing the people down, are they happy? Were they happy? Will Erika Schmidt ever be happy?
