In high-school, I was known as ‘big benny’.
I took advantage of those who were weak and small. I made the other kids do things for me in exchange for them not getting their shit rocked. I had kids who’d do my homework and kids who brought me lunch. When they didn’t do what I asked, I’d wait for the right moment to make them regret it. I’d meet them in the bathroom and make them lick the floor, or find them outside of school and hit them across the face.
In college, I was known as ‘bad benny’.
I joined a fraternity my freshman year and did a bunch of stupid shit. We’d all go to the bar every weekend, and every weekend there was some motherfucker talking shit who couldn’t back it up. Anytime someone got in my face or got in my fraternity brother’s face, I rocked their shit – no questions asked.
I wasn’t able to make people do shit for me like I could in high-school. I struggled with my classes and needed help studying. I was introduced to Adderall to help me study and weed to help me chill out. I bought both from the same guy, Johnny. Johnny was cool until he tried jacking the price up on me.
I went and confronted Johnny one night and told him the shit wasn’t cool. He told me either cough up the money or find someone else to buy from. I punched him across the face and promised to find him every day if he pulled that shit on me again. He apologized and swore not to do it again.
Johnny ignored me for the month to come, so I went back to his place and banged on the door. He answered the door with the chain on. I pushed through the door and broke the chain. I put him on the ground and punched him a few times before asking what his fuckin’ problem was. I told him he was going to start giving everyone in my fraternity a discount on weed and Adderall.
By my sophomore year, I was known for making things work in my favor. And my junior year, the only people who did fuck with me were people who didn’t know who I was, so mostly freshman.
My senior year of college, I was about to finish my business degree when I decided to get a head start on “business”. I went to Johnny’s place and told him he’d start giving me some Adderall to sell. Every month, he got 30 pills. I made him give me 20 of them to sell. It wasn’t much, but it was extra beer and party money.
After graduating, I went and joined the work force and tried to leave my past in the past. I didn’t want to be known as a bully anymore. I started working for a local pharmacy and my coworkers tried putting any and all paperwork on me since I was new. Once I figured out what they were doing, I slapped the paperwork out of their hands anytime they tried forcing me to do it, and made them do mine instead – otherwise, I’d make their shifts hell.
I eventually got a position within the pharmacy that put me in charge of sourcing new medications on the brink of FDA approval. I saw a few coming from a shit country named Chernarus and caught a flight out to look into it. I was there for a few days when I started getting updates to leave asap.
After being in the country for quite some time, Benny had made himself known to a few people. He tried to keep a pretty low profile, only exposing himself to a few people.
He made his profits by trading weaponry. By night, he'd sneak into local settlements and steal their weapons. By day, he'd sell them either back to the same group or to lone travelers. Over time, Benny became more of a target for his weaponry and had to seek refuge. He met Bobby Kalo and, though he didn't agree with all of his ideas, he respected him. He introduced himself only to the other lead individuals in the Roses, and continued with his work.
Goals and Work:
Supply the Black Roses with Weaponry and Drugs
Kidnap or capture other survivors and have them bring supplies (Killian Arclight)
Quietly infiltrate and source information from other settlements
Establish a network of informants
Prevent others from finding out his name
Business eventually caught up to Benny, and the Black Roses too.
Most of them were no where to be found - Bobby primarily. Benny spent weeks searching for them only to be caught in the city of Chernogorsk. He was beaten unconscious and woke up in a cell underground.
There is no telling how long he has been there, or who has him, or how long they'll keep him.
