His childhood was a bit different from others.
His mother was a volunteer for the "Dentists without limits" which resulted in her spending most of her time in Afrika.
Cade's father was a power plant engineer which meant he had to travel a lot.
So due to these reasons, Cade got homeschooled.
In the start, Cade thought that it sucked to just live at a place for a few months and then have to move again. But after a few years, he started to like it. He learned how and where to meet new people and make new friends. Sure it sucked that he only got to meet them for a few months but nothing stopped them from meeting each other in the future.
A few years later, when Cade was 20 he was done with his studies and decided to take a gap year before going to university.
He decided to contact a few of the friends he had made during the time he had been moving around with his dad.
So one month later he was on a plane on his way to Novigrad to spend two months with Bo. Bo
Bo or Boris was one of the friends he had made during the time with his father.
But just two weeks later shit hit the fan in Chernarus.
BO and Cade tried to escape the high populated Novigrad.
They ran up north through the woods.
But it turned out that they not only had to avoid infected people and bombs.
One day when they were just a few miles from the town of Balota Bo heard howling. They began to run but it was already too late. The wolves tore Bo apart.
With the adrenaline pumping through his body Cade managed to make it to Balota. But there was no one there but infected.
For a few days he went from town to town looking for people and supplies but he couldn´t find much. But then one afternoon he met a girl. Her name was Hannah. She then introduced cade to more people. They called themselves the "Roots". So for a few weeks, Cade rolled around with them. They helped and took care of each other.
But something happened. They started to argue with each other and the group got split into two parties. It didn´t last very long and eventually, it all collapsed and once again Cade was alone.
But one day he met a group of people that called themselves "Blackout" or they did it once before realizing it was a stupid name and therefore changed it to "The Hounds" because apparently, that's better. But anyway Cade joined them.
