Ned comes from Australia, leading a lackadaisical beyond his proffesion in the rurals hunting for the sake of the farmers.
His life was rather uneventful, no tragic backstory of remorseful/woeful tale. However, his life was about to change dramatically and unexpectedly after he took a short vacation to eastern europe to explore the wilds and talk to the english speaking locals who shared his interests. Ned managed to take such a trip in an incredibly inconvenient time, and landed himself right in the middle of an international crisis. He then took refuge in the forests, spreading himself as far as possible from the trouble as he could. Days, weeks and even possibly years went by to him unwittingly. He would become fond of the forest's convenient nature in the times of turmoil, taking refugee from bandits, infected and groups who had it out for others in general. During that, he picked up valuable skills which would earn him an ability to provide himself, whatever the situation. At least, he hoped so... Life had a way of teaching a young man lessons which he wouldn't know could come his way.
