Shane Smith, living in the Australian outback for most of his life, has made a tough young man. From a young age he had a dislike towards the military as his older brother was killed in his first week of active duty from friendly fire. He grew up in a small town, the only son of the town’s bakers. In his teenage years he earned some money by helping farmers rid their properties of rabbits. He did this with trapes, shooting and poisoning. At the age of 17 he started his own business doing what he had done for years. After doing this for a few years and his business growing to have 5 employees under him he decided he deserved a holiday. Been strapped for cash, he looked around for the cheapest flight eventually find one into Chernarus, presumably because of its recent civil war. He didn’t like the look of Chernarus but planned to fly in and stay a few days to get himself transport to France, where he planned to have most of his holiday.
But his plan came undone as the nation he had landed fell into chaos and anarchy. The night before he planned to leave, he got a call from the bus depo that he planned to catch a bus from informed him to stay away as there were protests close by, and they were delaying all departures until further notice. Worried for his safety Shane stayed in his room for the next few days, checking in with the depo every morning. On the fourth day he got no answer from the depo. He decided to try and make his own way out of the country. On his way to the bus depo he witnessed a group of armed soldier fire on groups of civilians. Shane was shocked at the atrocities that where been committed, he tried to contact the police but could get a hold of them. He then set out to find a store that was open, to buy some tinned food to last him a few days in his room. He kept up this routine, over time it was less of purchasing food, and more of looting from busted up stores and raided houses.
