Hunter Haynes. Born in New York City where he spent most of his early years, his parents moved out of Brooklyn to settle in upstate New York during his adolescence. The young man spent most of his time in the wilderness, exploring the backwoods, creeks and hills, hunting for game and working summer jobs as a wildlife photographer and tourist guide.
The young, intrepid explorer grew up to get into the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. Upon his graduation he managed to clinch a coveted job with National Geographic, which saw him travel the world, following his passion now-turned-profession.
It was during one of these passionate trips that he was sent to cover the tumult in Chernarus, where the destruction of apocalyptic proportions found him, trapping him within a strange country, with little hope of escape.
