Shaun was born in Manchester and raised as a single child by strict and wealthy parents, Elena and Matthew Harper, receiving an education in a private school and living in a considerably large house, a bad day for him would tend to be stepping in a puddle or receiving a smaller allowance due to bad behavior.
Into his teen years and entering high school, Shaun remained a popular person and while not physically adept, he was the class joker and had a rebellious streak in him to his teacher's dismay. However, his grades were consistently good and so no real life lessons could be taught without the irony that he naturally gifted at everything he tried, leading to a warped sense of how the world works.
Differing from his parent's conviction into business, Shaun desired power, not wealth, he already had the latter and knew the word 'poverty' but did not understand it.
He started by studying Law Administration, then conflict resolution, working his way into a job as a police officer, his wish for power had been granted but not nearly to the degree he needed.
While working he enrolled into Human Resources and Social Sciences, studying inbetween his deployment at the local police station. After all, he fully believed he could do anything.
After spending several years in police work and having masters degree's in numerous subjects, what was the next step? When it finally occurred to him that he was thinking too locally, he needed to be global.
Applying as a UN conflict resolution officer was a perfect fit, major world issues could be under his thumb, all he had to do was make a few flights, make a few friends and his new job was all but guaranteed.
Once the job started however, his life was turned upside down, for the first time Shaun faced a challenge, his early deployments led to him being faced with people of more humble backgrounds, living in impoverished conditions is an unfathomable concept to Shaun and so was unable to empathize.
It was impossible to accept that he himself was the problem, it was clear the man he negotiated with was angry, making impossible terms, yes, it was a definite no-win scenario and he made the best of an already bad situation, at least that's what he convinced himself and his superiors.
On the flip side however, Shaun was almost artful at dealing with powerful individuals hailing from great wealth, burying the failures and taking too much credit for the victories, Mr Harper was at his prime.
With the situation in a certain foreign country declining, after merely 8 years ago resolving its civil war, Chernarus was yet again breaking down, on the 17th of July, the UN dispatched its peacekeepers, one of those being a Conflict Resolver with a suspiciously good record.
It turns out however that his negotiation skills were for naught, the dead cannot be reasoned with and can only be pacified with a bullet through the head. Fortunately, being part of the 1% that has an immunity to this unknown virus, Shaun survived the exposure and was able to escape his turned colleagues, unfortunately he had to leave his equipment behind, making it out alive with nothing but the contents of a mini-fridge and the clothes on his back. He now works to reclaim his possessions and his power, with one small curiosity... Can his silver tongue be as effective as a bullet?
