Simon grew up in Östersund, Sweden with his family. And during his childhood, Simon didn't have many friends at all, except his brother Zack.
Simon became an outcast at school since nobody wanted to play with him and everyone saw him as a "weirdo" and made sure he knew about it.
Everyday when Simon came home from the hell everyone called school, he always would go up to his brothers room and if he wasn't there, he would be in the garage, working on something.
His brother thought Simon was a bit of a weirdo too but didn't say anything unless they would get into a big fight or something, but Simon always looked up to his brother.
When they grew up a bit, they got closer and closer until they were pretty much inseparable, that was until Zack went and joined the army and had to leave Simon.
Simon found out about the Chernarus situation in the news, on the television and instantly knew where it was since him and his brother had talked about the location before Zack left to serve on an island outside of Chernarus called Utes.
Simon tried contacting his brother all the time and one time all the answers stopped. Simon had no clue what had happened to Zack and had to find out, so Simon contacted Zacks Helicopter teacher and mentor Arne
who had an amazing connection to both of the brothers. Simon said that Zack had stopped answering his calls and he knew it had something to do with the Chernarus breakout.
Arne told Simon that if Zack didn't call for another 2 days that they would go and get him, maybe Zack had gotten involved in the whole outbreak situation.
Zack didn't answer or call, so they booked plane tickets to Romania and hired a helicopter from there. They then flew to Chernarus to find Zack.
