Shane was born in the United Kingdom in 1989. He grew up in the rural south-west of England, on a small farm where he lived with his Mother, Farther and sister. Shane and his farther did not see eye to eye. From a young age, Shane frequently argued and disagreed with his farther. His early life was not great, being an outcast in school and failing at his education Shane decided to drop out of school to work on the family farm, but this was not the case, as he spent more time away from the farm in the local town with the few friends he had made whilst being at school, drinking, smoking, etc. As he got older, he looked into joining the Armed Forces, but failed his medical exam due to his eye-sight not being up to standard.
Shane looked into private military contracting firms, due to his obsession with joining the military. Upon his research, this is where Shane found out that most of these firms operate out of eastern Europe. His application to a fairly new contracting firm based out of Chernarus. He then books a flight to Bolota Airfield, and travels to Chernarus with no intention of coming home again. Once arriving, he takes a taxi from Bolota to the City of Cherno, as he has booked a room in the grand hotel there. The taxi driver talked about strange things happening around the country in the past few days, claiming that the government were covering up some sort of disease. Naturally, Shane just presumed he was just a crazy local with a wild imagination, as he mention the re animation of the diseased. If only he understood the chaos that was about to unleash throughout the Country.
