Before the outbreak
Alan was born in Italy, at Camp Darby near Pisa, to father Matthew Woods, a Sgt. in the US Army and mother Alessia Ferrero. He had an easy childhood and made lots of friends at school and even his grades were very good. It all seemed a perfect life for Alan, until his parents died in a car crash when he was 14. They were returning from a party at the military camp and a drunk man hit them with his car.
Since there was no other relative who wanted to take Alan in, he was sent to a foster home, where he met Chris Watson and Giuseppe Benne. They helped him coop with his pain and became best buddies in good and bad.
At 19, Alan moved out of the foster center and found a job at a local warehouse. Some time later, Chris and Giuseppe came to Alan to propose funding a trip of the children in the foster center, so they could visit Chernarus. They said they could come along with the children aswell and participate in the various activities held at the camp where they were headed.
Arrival in Chernarus
The 15th of March 2017 they all arrived at Miroslavl and went to a local Chernarussian school which would house them for the entirety of the trip. Alan, Chris and Giuseppe went on exploring by themselves, visiting local landmarks and finding out more about this "new" country. They had made lots of friends on the way and nothing seemed to stop them from going around freely and enjoying themselves until...
The threat !
After a month, the trip was ended and the children were returning home, apart from our 3 musketeers. They had went missing and nobody had any clue about them. The teachers knew the truth tho.
The truth was that Alan, Chris remained behind because Giuseppe had gone missing. Days earlier they decided to go to South Zagoria and visit the Devil's Castle. While they were there, Giuseppe had gone missing and nobody had any clue where he could have gone. So both decided to stay behind, and continue searching the local forests for clues of his dissapearance. In the meanwhile, political unrest was rising through South Zagoria.
Escape from South Zagoria
Whatever happened to Giuseppe, wasn't a lonely case. More people, locals and foreigners started dissapearing.
On the 10th of July, Alan and Chris found out about the fate of their lost friend. He had been found almost dead near the forests of Zelenogorsk. He was taken to the hospital, where they induced him a coma so they could take care of his wounds.
The next day, shit hit the fan. People infected with something went crazy and started attacking others. As Alan and Chris went to the Zelenogorsk clinic, they were stopped by CDF troops who took them away, towards the coast to a refugee camp.
During the following days, the army was slowly failing to resist the infected and were overrun. Alan and Chris managed to grab a police car and ran away, towards Novigrad. On the road they had hit with another car and both went unconscious.
A new life
Both had been rescued later that day by some teenagers, Jakub and Anna. They took them to a cabin and Anna looked after them, while Jakub was stockpiling on food and water for the "storm" to come. The world had changed for our 2 heroes, but it was only gonna take a turn for the worse...
After various adventures, losses and the building of a stable settlement, Chris decided to form a group and go to South Zagoria, to research on a strange radio signal he had received. A month of being gone, Alan with his newfound friend Radek followed in their steps, to find out what happened to the group... [CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT MORE]
