Born in Hawaii, U.S. due to an affair with his mother and her boss. When his father found out he filed for divorce, including custody of the child. Ultimately he won custody and shortly following his father moved to Texas to start over. Kenny did well in school but always struggled with what he wanted to pursue as a career. Jumping from one gig to the next, nothing was sticking to him; nothing was motivating him enough. He eventually landed working customer relations at a small mom and pop restaurant. He eventually developed a love interest for a regular at the restaurant, a foreign exchange student that goes to the same school as Kenny. Her name was Sasha Osin, Kenny had some classes with her but was never close with her. Eventually Kenny worked up the courage to ask the girl out, surprisingly she said yes. They continued dating throughout high school, when they both graduated Sasha told Kenny that she was planning a month long trip to her homeland to visit her family. She extended the offer to Kenny, which he did accept. A couple weeks later they took off for the town of Stary Sobor, where her family lived. When they arrived her parents welcomed her and Kenny with open arms, the trip was going well until the Chernarus crisis started unfolding. Sasha's family took refuge in their homes and waited for the military to fix the issue, but the longer they waited the sounds of car honking and yelling got quieter. Eventually no noise could be heard throughout town, her parents were strict on staying in town as they feared leaving could kill them. Days turned into weeks, weeks into months. By the time that it had been about a year, they were searching trash cans for food. One foggy morning a roaring sound is heard throughout Stary, waking up Kenny and the others. When they looked outside they saw a helicopter slowly creeping over the town, they stared at the helicopter as it sat hovering over the town square for what seemed like 20 minutes. After the helicopter slowly flies away into the fog, disparaging. Kenny and the others thought that they were looking over the town for survivors and hoped that the military took control of the situation. As they were preparing lunch they heard shambling outside their house, when Kenny looked outside he saw that a massive horde of infected was making its way through the town. Eventually the infected found the house that they were staying in and started to swarm the house. Cramped in a small bedroom, the group tried thinking of ways to get out of this situation. Sasha's father proposed that they could flee the city, but Sasha declined saying that everyone leaving together is suicide. Kenny got the idea of everyone leaving in pairs, to maximize everyone's survival chance. Once he proposed it both parties agreed. One by one he saw the group running through the town, getting lost in the fog. When it became Kenny and Sasha's turn to go they decided to run south of Stary, since that was the rendezvous point for everyone. As Kenny and Sasha ran through Stary, the amount of infected was overwhelming. Through the chaos Kenny lost sight of Sasha, as he tried looking around he couldn't see anything in the thick fog. Hoping that she was still alive he fled south of Stary, when he arrived at the rendezvous point, he noticed no-one was there. He thought that maybe the others got lost outside of the town because of the fog so he decided to wait for them. As the sun started to set he got the dread that maybe they died, or ran in the wrong direction. He kept his hopes up and continued to wait at the point. But no-one arrived, in a country that he doesn't understand, Kenny decided to try to find his lost group. Hoping that they are still alive.
