Jerome was born in the slums of south London and raised by his father who was a debt collector for a local gang.
Taking part in the London riots of 2011, he showed extreme violence at a young age, gaining the attention of his fathers gang. As he got older he would accompany his father to collect debts, often resorting to threats and violence to ensure payment.
He travelled to Russia near the border of Chernarus with friends to see a football match after earning a lot from a large debt recovery. During the midst of an alcohol fueled night he blacked out and woke up in a hotel in Chernarus.
