Boone was a Lumberjack before the outbreak and his strength with an axe is what has kept him alive ever since. Boone was in Savannah, GA when the news of the infection broke and as you would expect in a large city at the time, chaos ensued. He was hundreds of miles from his family that lived in Columbia, South Carolina. After multiple failed phone calls he stole a vehicle in the middle of the rioting and made his way north as quick as possible. He didn't make it far before breaking down somewhere along the coast of North Georgia. After miles of walking along the coast he found an abandoned sailboat. After gathering supplies he headed out onto the water hoping to skip the traffic jams and rioting along the roads. As a man with no navigational sense or ability to sail, the second a storm hit on his third day at sea he was lost and had no idea where he was going. After drifting for probably a month, he finally spotted land. He didn't recognize the language on the street signs and realized he was far from home. He decided to head inland and soon came upon Chernarus. He doesn't believe anyone in his family is still alive anymore after the time that passed so his only focus is to survive in this foreign landscape he knows almost nothing about. He does consider himself a naturally protective person and will always stop to help those he believes are in need. This usually gets him into some pretty rough situations but he's a hardheaded steadfast person that will never change his ways.
