Ryan Rivers also known as SGT Rivers. At the age of 17, Ryan enlisted into the United States Army. From there he studied profusely and exercised extensively to pass his exams. At the age of 18, he skipped two ranks and became an SPC (Specialist). Once he became an SPC, He began to show his true talents. His true talent was Witt, Brawn, and good Leadership skills. After having these talents displayed, his commander took notice and had put him through a Basic leadership course. If Ryan had passed he would be granted the rank of SGT. After passing the leadership course he was given the rank of Sergeant. For 3 years he stayed at the base waiting for deployment until one day he gets the order from the command that he will be shipped out to Chernarus. Ryan had seen pictures of Chernarus before. The country had seemed nice but very mixed climates. In the winter it could be cold as Russia or hot like the summers in North Carolina, Which he got to experience. It will be a year since Ryan has been stationed in Chernarus, during that time everything will plunge into chaos. One night, Ryan awoke from his sleep as he heard gunfire and bombs going off. Immediately after waking up he quickly put his gear on and rushed outside to see people with life-threating injuries still walking. He couldn't make sense of what was going on, but all he saw was death and destruction around him. Soldier's he saw who were dead just miraculously get back up but aren't normal. To Ryan, whatever these "things" were, they are no longer people. For 4 hours, Gunfire and the bombs stopped. Ryan looked around as he saw all of his comrades dead on the ground or walking amongst the infected. After the destruction of the outpost and the death of all inhabitants of said outpost, Ryan decides to take what he can and leave the outpost fearing that more will be coming. While setting out, he has 2 goals in mind: Help the people of chernarus and find out how this happened in the first place.
