Reed was born into a working-class family in South East London, his parents were loving and, despite having such little earnings, his family was happy and managed to get by. His father, Thomas Hamilton, worked nights as a security guard at the HSBC building in Canary Wharf, and despite not seeing him often, he played a massive influence on Reed’s interests, both him and his dad shared a great interest in music, and from a young age he surrounded himself with music, despite not exactly understanding it, his dad wasn’t the best parent, often forgetting to apply discipline, but he loved his son, and for Reed that was more than enough. His mother, on the other hand, played a much stricter role in his childhood, more than anything she was worried about him taking the wrong path, the area they lived in was not exactly the nicest, and his mother took all precautions to protect her son from gangs and drugs, both of which were commonplace on their estate, it took many years for Reed to realise his mother’s good intentions, something he always regretted. As a young child, Reed was rather shy, once he started school he found great trouble making friends and engaging himself in lessons. Luck had it that he managed to make a few friends who he stuck by, allowing him to avoid a severe downward spiral.

He was happy throughout school, making good progress, he was never a star student, but he was content in the knowledge that it would all be okay in the end. During his first few years in secondary school, Reed was bullied by a select few kids, they ridiculed him for his long hair and appearance outside of school, it was at this point that Reed started to question his appearance and mindset, he was a weak minded young teenager and the bullying he suffered had a knock-on effect that would greatly affect his life from that point on.

The bullying didn’t last long, but Reed suffered the consequences, in many ways, he damaged himself more than anything. First, he took a complete change in style, instead of wearing the punk/metal esqe attire he usually stuck to, of which was influenced by his taste in music, he started to dress more ‘commonly’ and tried to listen to other types of music but this just made him unhappier. When he was 15 he decided to ask out a girl whom he had a crush on, much like any young boy did, not only was he rejected, but also emotionally torn, the girl in question made various comments about his weight, he wasn’t at all chubby or fat, but clearly not good enough to her standards.

Reed once again made the mistake of letting harsh comments get to him, from that point on, he began to lose weight.

 

Reed’s life began to get better, and worse. He regained his confidence socially, began to dress and act like he wanted, and built strong relationships, both with his parents, who he had been very distant from up until now, and a select few friends. But one thing still haunted him.

When he was 16, he was diagnosed with Anorexia Nervosa, it was a surprise to all that knew him, although his weight was picked up on, no one thought it was that serious. Reed was usually very open with his thoughts and feelings, but whenever it came to his weight, in the usual fashion of anorexia sufferers, he denied it being a problem. It was a bigger concern considering Reed’s interest in various fields of medicine.

Coming to the end of his school years, Reed was confident in his career choices and strived to gain the qualifications needed. He had built an interest in medicinal fields, mainly due to the influences took of his grandmother. They had always been very close, when his grandfather died when he was only 3, his grandma, who lived locally, spent a lot of time helping his mother raise Reed. He loved the stories his grandma told of both her time working as a nurse and of her father, who at a young age served as a soldier during World War 1.

Reed took Biology and Chemistry for his A Levels, and the fact that he was so good at this motivated him more than anything. Upon leaving school at age 18 with A’s and B’s in all his subjects, Reed attended University studying Biochemistry on a 3-year course.

At University Reed came to terms with his problems, he would undergo therapy to help with his body dysmorphia, and start to branch out a bit more, meeting new people and partying all helped with him eventually tackling his anorexia. It took some time, but he finally started to make progress with gaining weight and building strength, he was still very weak, but doctors confirmed that he was on a good path.

Reed took a great interest in his studies, he quickly concluded that he wanted to work in the hematology field after extensive research. As well as this, he also started to get involved in charity work, upon the persuasion of a few of his classmates, he started to volunteer for the British Red Cross. It was here that he was taught extensive first aid, he was also educated on previous and current affairs to which the Red Cross responded to. During his final year of university, Reed applied for and gained a part-time position as an Offshore Medical Response Worker, he found himself very interested in said affairs and thought it would be a plausible act to pledge his service if such an event were to happen.

At the age of 20, Reed graduated from University with the qualifications for a Position as a Medicinal Lab Technician at Kings College Hospital in London. He underwent a 3-month training scheme prior. His job consisted of the processing of patients blood tests, as well as handling the hospitals pharmaceutical needs. He was very happy with his job and in turn made great progress.

 

Reed was in an unfortunate position for the turn of the outbreak, Following the strange occurrences and military activity in the small country of Chernarus, of which gained a steady news coverage, Reed was contacted by the British Red Cross regarding a potential shipping of aid workers following word from UN Officials about a potential outbreak of severe infection. Reed saw this as his time to serve and promptly confirmed his attendance. During the time before being shipped out, Reed became increasingly concerned as to what he could expect, the news delivered reports of Russia and Takistan closing their borders, as well as airstrikes and NATO intervention.

When the time came, all BRC Aid workers, including Reed and a few of his former classmates, were told they were being flown to the city of Miroslavl, and then being split and moved to the cities of Chernogorsk and Electrozavadosk to assist UN Peacekeepers with duties such as medical check-ups and treatment, as well as supplying goods to the populace. Reed was swiftly moved to Chernogorsk, commonly abbreviated to Cherno by non-locals. Reed was first tasked with getting medical supplies to each of the city’s hospitals, then to help set up a camp to handle the overflow of patients awaiting examination for the feared infection, in the short few days before contact was lost, Reed assisted with check-ups on each patient.

 

Once contact was lost, the fear crept in, many people left the city, and many started acting as though the world was ending. Reed couldn’t help but think just how severe the whole situation could be, regardless, he continued to play his part. The reality of the situation didn’t sink in until the city was officially evacuated by CDF and NATO/UN forces, Red Cross workers were told a full evacuation would take place back in Miroslavl, but nothing more.

Reed was then given the word that NATO forces had started to leave the country, and then word slipped through about the outbreak. Upon starting to leave, Reed first saw what was trying to be contained, humans with zombie-like features began to move into the vicinity above Cherno, from this point on gunshots were a common occurrence on the borders of the city. Reed was split from the majority of Peacekeepers and Aid workers leaving the eastern region of the country, he remained under the line of defence attempting to keep control of the city, It was less than a day before the defence started to cripple, and the infected humans started to breach, it was at this point that Reed first saw what they were capable of.

Soon enough the continuous gunfire fell silent and practically clueless Reed was left with a grim reality. The UN resisted the infection in pockets around the coastal area, and soon enough Reed would have to fend for himself.

Spoiler

 

[Beginning of Lore]: Reed is usually a very calm individual, he does not express emotion so clearly and tends to bottle up his thoughts, he is also rather non-conflictive, he will rarely charge in head first to deal with issues and prefers to think everything over first. He will only open up to those he trusts.

[Current]: Reed has definitely become more aware and cautious about his surroundings and others, but despite this, he has become more confident as he understands the severity of issues that affect his everyday life. Not to mention the fact that he has others now to look out for.

As well as this, Reed has, in many ways, taken on a more pessimistic look at the many situations that affect life in South Zagoria, these only strengthen the morals established above.

Due to specific recent events, he has become a bit more defensive and does not take too well to people being rude or hostile towards him.

Recent events have also pushed Reed to be very cautious of people, he will now often try to appeal to people and, if necessary, drive away suspicious people.

Wyatt Walters : A quick friend of Reed. They had met months prior to their departure to Chernarus, they were both Red Cross volunteers, with the same goals and skills. They worked together in Chernarus creating a bond similar to that of soldiers. Wyatt was compassionate, smart and loyal to his beliefs, Reed often looked up to him as a leader of sorts amidst the chaos of the days coming up to the fall of Cherno. After the outbreak, Reed has lost contact with Wyatt, soon finding out he was caring for a young girl, along with a friend. He would occasionally get to see Wyatt in the coming months, but this would not last. It soon came to his attention that Wyatt had died following a trip to Russia.

 

oie_920152ADitBpTe.jpg.4214c468859a285c580642a138ac89ec.jpg

Markus Letter : Reed first met Letter at the UN camp in Berenzino, although never properly got to know him until some time after. Letter was a UN soldier, true to his beliefs, caring and considerate, but strong-willed. He is one of Reed’s closest friends, they had spent a lot of time together as a group, and with this time Reed had grown closer to Letter through hardship and joyous occasions alike. Reed feels he can trust Letter entirely, be it for security, advice or for a taste of his very German sense of humor. He respects him entirely and only wishes that he can repay him for his efforts in supporting not only him but all of their friends. Reed is still in contact with Letter and although they now have other responsibilities, they both know who they can rely on.

 

oie_92031pGOxBekV.jpg.9555863fd878bf67d4fd93e8f9c5d544.jpg

Ella Strakova : Reed was first acquainted with Ella in the UN camp in Berenzino, a mute girl, but with a unique and charming personality. His girlfriend at the time, Beth, had taken her under her wing, Reed took on a caring role of sorts as well, although not entirely hands on. He understood she was old enough and mature enough to take care of herself, unlike others. He tried his best to get to know her as a person and came to appreciate her, both as a friend and as a human being. She was tolerant, witty, and often displayed certain skills with surprising excellence. After months of being together as a group, Ella moved on along with Beth, they now see each other occasionally.

 

oie_920428Bt64ERx5.png.f271b1a361e7944cc1fcf81153d87d13.png

Kristian Holmen : Holmen is, or was, the Major of the United Nations in Chernarus. He is a leader in every definition of the word, Reed quickly came to respect him, He led the UN when they were still around and their group after that. Holmen is often reserved, only speaking when necessary, but nevertheless a strong-willed person. Reed never got to know Holmen too well on a personal basis but knows enough to consider him a close friend.

 

oie_920536wJXt12kB.jpg.3d0c5326c181f49d8a369a26ff7f7e3d.jpg

Faith Hawk : Capella was a Doctor working for the World Health Organisation alongside the United Nations in Chernarus. A fellow Brit and just as witty and sarcastic as any brit is. Reed first met her in the UN Camp in Berenzino. She is hardworking, caring and compassionate. She is someone Reed knows he can rely on with any issues or even for a casual joke. She is down to earth and realistic if not a bit hot-headed, one of the many things Reed respects her for, It is people like her that keep him sane. Faith has been distant in the recent months and is currently away with Holmen, events have been tough on everyone but he knows them both will remain true to themselves and with the others.

 

oie_920650MFpJR0i8.jpg.3ec0dcbc9d0458ebb1f58bf8afc143ac.jpg

Caspar Hawk : A UN Captain, Reed first met Caspar at the UN Camp in Berenzino, he was, for a long time a strict soldier, never showing a personal side, at least not to most. After the UN became obsolete, Reed got to know Caspar, and soon came to like him, Such a serious personality but he always found time for light-hearted banter during downtime, It was uncommon to see someone able to switch on and off like he did, and Reed soon came t respect him for it. Much like Holmen, Caspar held an unofficial authority over the group, and his guidance was always sought for.

 

oie_920833Zhidx7B.jpg.61ea3d33be5df2bda000a415f6d6be3a.jpg

Baz Saunders : Baz was a police officer, a bit younger than Reed, true to himself, generous and compassionate. Reed first started to get to know Baz after most of the UN was evacuated, He only ever looked at Baz as a friend, as Baz was more aligned with personal judgment than he was with authority. Baz proved to be someone you could rely on, he was always thinking about what was right, and his flaws were always outshined by this, some may call him weak-minded, but Reed always considered him an influence in simply staying sane, Baz has taken a step back as of recent, dealing with personal issues, but they stay in contact.

 

oie_92091YkrIbo6R.jpg.8c4b093cf62ebb44f6c4e66f9f9f7012.jpg

Eamon Hanley : Eamon was a United Nations soldier who regrouped with them shortly after the UN evacuated. At first, Eamon seemed reserved in his thoughts, he was always on guard and looked out for everybody. Soon enough he opened up to Reed and a few others, proving himself to be just as kind as many had presumed he was, he took responsibility for others safety unconditionally and was always there for everyone, be it to fight at another's side or just have a conversation, one of the many reasons why Reed respected him so much. Eamon has recently returned after dealing with other issues (presumably).

 

oie_920109cEZlyzhJ.jpg.efc57b45dd789f397936247d216826da.jpg

Dolores Haze : A young girl, kind and sweet, and, for a long time, the talk of the town, since the start of the outbreak, Dolores had been under the care of many different people, Reed and his groups included, Reed first met the young girl at Black Lake, and it was not long until she was staying with them. Dolores is innocent and ignorant, traits not particularly unusual for a 13-year-old girl. Regardless, she was always learning, they had gained a personal trust after dealing with countless mishaps involving mutual friends and threats over the months following the outbreak. He hopes that she can learn to be independent in the case of tragedy, she is currently away with Will, contact is infrequent.

 

oie_9202829bctdFfNh.jpg.370cfe84152a6d38323b1f25cd112d11.jpg

Willem Nedved : Nedved is a native police officer, he has been with the UN from the start, more or less. Reed first met in in the UN camp, he was, and still is, strict and responsible, a model police officer and the perfect example of a conformed man, he always makes intelligent and mature judgements, and his input is highly valued, but when the timing is appropriate, the crack of a joke or casual conversation are common with him. Reed has gotten to know him well, but still feels like he is only scratching the surface, it feels like there is a lot more under that thick shell of his. Nedved is still in constant contact, even when he is off doing his own thing.

 

oie_920300tGLuY7Hr.jpg.790cda70fc0d16a4ac16217cc45ab3f9.jpg

Liam Hart : Liam came from a group they were once allied with, a fellow Brit who always had something snarky to say. Liam was easy to talk to, and even easier to rely on, when he wasn't being a wise guy, regardless he was a loveable wise guy, and they had shared many hardships over the many months after the outbreak. Besides, the Brits need to stick together! Liam is still in contact.

 

oie_9203256gVG5T0zw.jpg.e449ed41e172d27edbfdb11dd2433d80.jpg

Merek Kolsky : A native and former neighbor to Ella, Reed first met Merek after the UN evacuation, the clicked quickly, Merek was witty and always subject to casual banter but also strong and compassionate, he would do what was necessary to any situation and stand by his beliefs. Reed came to respect his ideology and would trust him unconditionally. Merek is currently in contact though not always around.

 

oie_920341060686yD2.jpg.56763b4a737e347a0f725b2a2fe24e08.jpg

Leliana Gorny : Lily came around as a new chapter in Reed’s life, they found each other and instantly clicked, they helped each other with personal issues and she was one of the main reasons he was able to pick his head back up after the attack. She was kind and compassionate, shy and perhaps a bit innocent, but none of that mattered to Reed. He had finally found someone who understood him and appreciated him, much like he did with her. They had recently confessed said attraction to each other, and Reed now hopes to spend more time with her and do what he can to help her with prominent issues. Lily is currently staying with a group of people somewhere disclosed for her own safety, communication is rare but things are getting better.
