Lawrence Fredrick goes by several alias, (Dr. Fredrick, Mr. Fredrick, and Doc). He is a P.H.D graduate from Harvard University in the United States, majoring in biochemistry. By the time of the outbreak, he was in his mid fifties, working with a research team within the CDC to find the cause of the virus. Due to rapid mutations in the virus, not much progress could be made with current technology. In an effort to study the virus actively, himself and his research team leaving the United States via a series of boats. During the trek across the Atlantic Ocean, the fleet was hit by many storms, losing nearly half of the team before making landfall in El Jadida in Morocco. Dr. Fredrick and the remainder of his team made contact with the military personnel in Morocco, making a randevu with several high ranking personnel within the Moroccan military, ensuring safe passage to the city of Sevastopol in the Ukraine. After landing safely in Sevastopol, Dr. Fredrick and his team were taken into police custody, and questioned on there reasons coming into such close proximity of the what the Ukrainian government called the quarantine zone. After stating their business, and answer hundreds of questions over the course of a week, the team was told only one researcher would be allowed to enter the zone. Dr. Fredrick instinctively volunteered himself, because it was his project, and if he could find anyway to help slow the spread of the virus, it would be worth it. After some time of preparation, Dr. Fredrick was shipped off on a cargo ship, with a team of armed personnel. Nearing their objective, their ship was hit by a large storm, crashing the ship into the coastline north of Berezino. The memories of the events after the wreak were a blur to Dr. Fredrick, he is somewhere in Chernarus, slowly going insane due to extended time in isolation.
