When the outbreak started, Jordel was in the military for 3 years. He was stationed at Zelenogorsk Military Base after the outbreak hit to try and keep it under control. After Zeleno fell to the outbreak, he was on the road for who knows how long. One day he was trailing a group of bandits to try and knock one of them out to get some free food when a car pulls up. All 3 of the bandits raise their weapons and tell them to get out or die. After a few seconds, 4 NATO soldiers hop out and mow them down.
