Born in Gorka and gone to school in Berezino, Lee grew up lonely. Lee's father (Hugo) was a true Swedish native and worked in the factory in Electro. He worked long 12 hour shifts and was hardly home to speak to Lee. Lee's mother (Elis) was from England and came to Chernarus as a traveling nurse to help this country in the poorer parts. That's how they met, a nurse visits a poor village and falls in love with a villager. In '94, Lee was born but it did not affect their work life. Elis still traveled around working in other poorer villages and volunteering at hospitals when needed, but she only showed up back at home around once a month. This gave kids in the village and at school the privilege of teasing Lee and giving him the nickname of "The Orphan". Even though his parents were alive and healthy, they were not there to comfort him. Lee learned to fend for himself more independently by hunting local animals like deer, sheep, and chicken. He became skillful with guns and knifes but his social skills became weaker. When the outbreak happened, half of the villagers became infected almost over night. He took pleasure in killing the ones that ruined his childhood. Lee does not know if his parents ever survived the outbreak but it would not make a difference. They probably already left the country and left Lee to fend for himself like always. In the Summer of 2018, Lee was approached by a group of people who robbed him of everything he had. Beating Lee to nearly an inch of his life. Luckily, there was no infected around to finish their job. This left a bad taste of what humans are left on this earth for Lee. Lee now trusts people a little less and leans more toward his gun than a open hand. He will do what is necessary to survive whether it is to rob, shoot, and kill his way into the next town.
