Silver Shepherd grew up on a ranch out in west Texas. He grew up the youngest of three brothers and had one crazy father. Silver went through a lot as a kid watching his mother go through an abusive relationship, deal with heartbreak, and kinda had to fend for himself. At the age of 17 Silver went out and spent all his money on an acoustic guitar. It was a worn out Gibson that was in the back of the local music shop. That guitar changed Silver's life. He began to cope with his rough times with writing music and staying up late at night with a flashlight and his country guitar tabs book. Fast forward past high-school, Silver got a scholarship for music to a college and was planning to major in songwriting. In his first year there he found the love of his life Drue and they had 2 kids Jay was his oldest son and then they had their daughter Arial. With kids and a family ranch, college was too much for Shepherd. He ended up dropping out and headed back home. His father was no longer around due to drinking and his mother was at the retirement home. After returning home Silver realized that he wanted his family to have a life that was better than his growing up. The memories in that house he grew up in were too much for him and he decided to look elsewhere for a place to life. He decided to go look in other places in Texas and also overseas for a house on some beautiful land that he could raise his family. He took several trips to different towns in Texas and then found a place called Chernarus that was beautiful and affordable. Even though it was so far from home he thought he'd give it a look. threw some clothes into his guitar case on top of his guitar and headed to Chernarus. Upon arrival he was amazed by the place. It was unlike anything he had seen before. Quiet and peaceful...but it didn't stay that way forever and he's been stuck there ever since.
