Before the outbreak, Ron was a med student who dropped out to follow his dream of becoming a professional fighter. Ron proved to have the heart, but not the talent. After failing at his dream and basically throwing his future away, his childhood sweetheart Cynthia left him. Ron fell into a deep depression and hit the boos hard. Some time passed, and he decided he needed a change of scenery, took what little money he had saved and moved to Chernarus. When the outbreak occured, Ron decided he would put what little medical knowledge he had to good use, by helping other survivors along the way. His athleticism makes him a formidable opponent for the living dead. Ron is always willing to help his fellow man, but is a bit of an introvert and perhaps more of a lone wolf. Ron's mindset is to live to fight another day, no matter the cost. From time to time, he still wonders what has become of Cynthia back in the states.
