How's it going, the names Eddie Sorella. See I haven't always been this way, this person you see today, this survivor, I was a somebody before I was left in Chernarus to die...
Well growing up in an Italian American family was tough as a kid, growing up , everyone always had different expectations of me but I had my own after my life changed the day I walked into uncle Vinny's butcher shop. Walking through the door of the shop I kept calling his name but there was no answer, I could hear a lot of commotion in the back so I walked back to see what was going on. In the shops office , my uncle had a guy in there beating him to a pulp , I kind of felt bad for the guy until uncle Vinny let me know that's how he made his money , he told me how he was a made man who handled the collections of said money for the Boss in Pittsburgh.
After that day like I said my life was changed forever , no more 9-5 for me, I was hitting the streets making collections anyway I could for all the Bosses, in Philly and the Burg . I worked my way up to captain by the time I was 30 and I had the best crew around and I thought I was gonna be the Boss of said Organization but things did not go as planned , not at all . Like I did everything else I ran a tight knit crew , so tight one of my guys came up to me out of the blue and told me that Joey was taking money from his dock collections and was trying to run his own little side thing . So this one faithful morning I decided to confront Joey about why his earnings where getting smaller by the week , as soon as I got those words out of my mouth Joey bolted for the door , see I didn't blame this guy for running cause you could be my brother and you can get whacked for not doing what I say, that's just the type of fella I am , loyal to the higher ups.
I caught up to Joey as he was sitting in his car trying to start it from the cold morning, I tapped on the glass and I will never forget that look on his face as I took his life. I knew from that moment that I was a marked man for not consulting with my boss , so I decided to go to his house to smooth things over with him . As I knocked on the door it opened and I walked through only to get knocked out by Sal with a right uppercut , my life flashed before my eyes because I knew I was a goner , all the horrible things I have done , for what , to end up getting whacked by guys I knew for 20+ yrs. , fortunately for me as I was waking up from that blow to the jaw and probably being drugged , I had a burlap sac over my head, I managed to get it off and was amazed my life was spared but I was in an unfamiliar place I have never seen before . As I walked up to the road sign , it said Zelenogorsk , I knew from that moment a new journey would begin.
