Growing up in Philadelphia, Jim found a junkie grazing his spine with a needle while working in the many rounding tunnels of the Philadelphia public transportation system. After being told he'd never be able to run again and he would be terminated. Jim found himself going to Chernarus, the land of his forefathers, desperate to rediscover some meaning in life. After the outbreak, it was clear whether he could or not, he'd have to run again. Months have passed, and he finds himself a nomad in his own rite throughout the country side of Chernarus, avoiding people and groups alike, having learned quickly how the rampaging cannibals that were once the locals weren't the only monsters.
