John Billings was born and raised by a loving father and mother, along with his two sisters and youngest brother Jerry Billings, in the small village of Buffalo Springs, Texas. Living on a farm, working as a farmhand for his father's ranch taught him what it was to become a good, honest working man. He never shied a way from those who challenged him in conversation, as he appealed to be a confident, strong man, to whom then later engaged in social affairs with a loving sweetheart bartender, named Mary Lou Jackson, that worked at the town's notorious local dive bar "The Little Oxhorn." He eventually swept her off her feet, getting married in 1998. Leaving his father's farm in 2001 to his brother Jerry, to whom his father passed away earlier that year; he decided he wanted to become a more educated man, attending Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas to learn Criminal Law and Political Science. He graduated in 2005, to then return his home town and to voted in as Sheriff for the remainder of 6 years. Moving on from there, he ran a campaigned to become the Mayor of Buffalo Springs in 2013, which unfortunately only lasted a few months, to which he then resigned due to martial issues with his wife. They later divorced in late 2014, and that's when John chose to return to work on the farm for about two years. One day, in early 2017, John, unsatisfied with his life; decided to drop everything, to fly east and travel eastern Europe before he became to old to take pleasure in the scenery and exploration. After a few months in Europe, he decided he wanted to fly to Japan. Unfortunately during the flight, turbulence from a recent hurricane that occurred, caused the flight to crash off the coast of South Zagoria. Him, being the only survivor, found himself stranded on the shores, to encounter all hell breaking loose due to the outbreak.
