Douglas was born February 21 1997, in the Canada at the University Hospital in Saskatoon, however he did not grow up their instead he grew up in a small oil town named Paradise Hill where his Dad worked as the Vice principal at the school and a part time first responder while his mom worked as a educational assistant. Doug got along with almost everyone however he didnt have many friends growing up since he wasnt one for partying so instead he played videogames with his online friends or would go out shooting small game with his best friend on his familys land. Having had a pretty average High school experience Doug focused on honing his own skill, spending alot of his time practicing his aim and basic survival knowledge due to becoming very interested in prepping because of the large amount of games that focused on surviving disasters, so he thought it would be fun to learn about it for himself. By the time he finished high school he had become proficient at the basics of survival and a skilled sharpshooter but that was only for entertainment and fun he had never thought of it as anything else as everything in the world seemed good. Although it seemed to everyone that Douglas would probably end up joining the military he decided to go to university in Saskatoon to learn about medicine to hopefully one day become a doctor, however after his first semester tragedy struck his family and both his mom and dad where killed by a drunk driver while they where out for an evening stroll in June of 2016. Having lost his main support both emotionally and financially he dropped out of university and set out to experience life and travel the world learning life can end in an instant. He then began talking to his friends in the Ukraine about coming to see them in the next few months , and excitedly they began to make preparations for it. After months of hard work and saving every dollar he could Doug gathered more then enough money to go see his friends and have a comfortable amount of extra cash to enjoy his time there without worry.The time had come and he flew out to Dnipro International Airport June 14th, where his friends picked him up and took him back to their place in the city to get him settled in while they asked him about what he wanted to do. After hours of laughs and just talking about different things that they have done online and things that have been going on they came across a article about Chernarus rebuilding efforts after a civil war and they talked about going to check it out as it would be a fun adventure to make together. After a few weeks of exploring Dnipro with his friends they decided to check out this country they have been reading about all week so they packed up and flew there landing at Balota airstrip then driving to their hotel in Cherogorsk on June 25. Once there they learned of the rising hostilities between Russian and Chernarus in which they question their decision to come here but decided to say fuck it and try to enjoy the trip so they spent the next week and a bit exploring the city, going to the bars and talking with the locals about what they thought about the current events. then on July 7th they started to hear weird rumors about things going on in the north but they decided to ignore it as it didnt see pertaining to them and more of a country issue, so they ended up continuing there fun at bars with the locals. then the 11th came and the group wanted out but they didnt know how to leave as most of the roads where packed, so Doug started saying that they should go get some camping gear and prepare for the worst as the world was quickly settling into a video game setting. The others agreed and they quickly quickly set out to a camping store and loaded up on everything they needed as the chaos outside continued to escalate. Then made there way on foot towards Kamenka after hearing about the infection and wanting to get away from large groups as fast as possible. it took a day of walking to get to the town. Then they headed north into the thick forest and set up camp and dug in hoping to camp this thing out and it was going well till the 21st when the chaos had finally reached Kamenka, the distant gun shots and panic causing Doug and his friends to question there location but it didnt take long for everything to quiet down. they stayed there for many weeks and only encounter a few small groups of infected that they took out with spears and knives in the hopes to not attract more but soon realized they were going to need to get stronger and gather better gear if they wanted to survive this thing.
