Dean's Story began during the riots of 2017, when him and a squadron of 10 was sent from the USA to Chernarus in order to help restore peace in during the conflict. As it turned out, however, it was far too little, too late. Dean could not return back to his homeland due to the plane attacks from the skies, as it was not deemed safe to leave just yet. The situation in the country had been wildly underrated by Dean's commander, and Dean was now in the middle of a national conflict, that would soon consume the world. Dean and his squad were rejected, and treated like dirt by the already existing CDF, and had nothing to do in Chernarus, not really.
As the outbreak progressed, Dean lost all of his comrades, and is now alone in a foreign country, and does not know anyone, or anything just yet. This is however not the end of Dean's story. He is still going strong, but looking for a place to call home, and a group to call his family.
