Vincent Valentine was born on May 11th, 1990 in Natchitoches, Louisiana his father was a Don of the Valentine Crime Family and ran much of the city of Chicago but his mother was just a stripper and when he found out he'd got her pregnant he paid her to move as far away as they could. She was give four million dollars to go take the kid and never look back. Around the age of 17 Vincents mother passed away, but on her death bed she finally answered his questions about his father. His mother Sonni had done everything she could to give him a great life up until this point. But now he had to seek out his father so he could finish high school. Phillip Valentine was an easy man to find, one Vincent found his way there he started working for his father managing a warehouse. His father wanted to help set him up but didn't want him to join the "life". On one business try Vincent took with his father he met a man named Joseph Ligambi, who his father worked for and was a very powerful man in the country. Who led most of the midwestern crime syndicates. Joe took a interest in Vincent, and brought him back to Detroit to work for him. Here is where Vincent learned the trade and how to wheel and deal people. He then began running guns for the crime family from a Russian contact and getting them back into the states. Every week or two Vincent would make the trip to Russia and oversee a move of the weapons, when reports of an outbreak spread to him his boss wanted him to make one pick up near the Chernarus-Russian border.
Once they arrived they noticed that the men already had the boxes out, so Vincent hopped out and grabbed the money once the exchange was made Vincents crew started loading the weapons when they heard a scream, once of the other men was getting eaten by some psycho cannibal. Then out of no where a swarm of them came out of the trees and started attacking everyone. Vincent and his friend Kenny Russo, jumped in a car and took off leaving the other men to be lunch. They ran south towards Chernarus, as they drove they hit a ramp trying to get away from those crazy people when they where thrown into a large body of water.
Now Vincent is waking up on a beach, he looks over and sees his friend being munched on. Vincent gets up grabs his pistol from the car and fires all the rounds he has into the cannibal. Now it's time to survive by any means possible.
