Fernando was born in the U.S. after his parents immigrated from Portugal. After he grew up he decided to become an Emergency Responder, such as Structural Firefighting and a K9 handler for an International Search and Rescue Organization. After hearing the civil unrest and disease spread within Chernarus, him and his team volunteered to travel to Chernarus and assist with emergencies. Mainly by using his K9 to assist the military in locating survivors and to bring them back to the evacuation zone.
After spending several weeks in Chernarus, Fernando and his Partner who also had a K9 headed out with the military to locate additional survivors who were believed to be hiding in the northern woods. After several hrs of air scent tracking, his K9 indicated a survivor. Once they located the person they noticed something odd. Person was covered in blood and standing lifeless. Fernando's partner attempted to administer first aid, only to be attacked by the survivor who was a zombie. The soldiers began firing several rounds until the zombie finally died. As he went to administer first aid to his partner we heard a commotion deep in the woods, only to look up and seeing a horde.
The Soldiers opened fire, the tense situation scared away the dogs, and the zombies were not dropping. As Fernando was attempting to comprehend what was going on one of the soldiers grabbed him by the arm and yelled "RUN!". Without hesitation, he ran through the woods, attempting to make his way back to the evacuation zone. All he could hear was the sound of his tense heart beat, screams and gun fire in the distance.
As he approached the Evacuation zone all he could see in the distance was smoke and the sounds of gun fire. Once he got close enough he saw civilians running frantically, soldiers shooting in all different directions and zombies jumping on them and eating their flesh. with this sight of horror he ran and hid for several days until the distant screams, and gun fire faded away. Now he roams Chernarus attempting to survive. Wondering what has happened? is the whole world like this? can he make it back home? or is he stuck here?
