Ronald Longoria was sent to Charnarus by a private contractor, Geis Auto, based in Cooperstown, New York. Born in Schenectady, Ron was raised in a Roman Catholic house. His mother died when he was young, and his father shortly after. He lived with his uncle in the 70s/80s (his father's brother), involving himself closely with his uncle's business: multi level marketing. Losing faith while in high school and seeing only dollar signs, he moved to the east coast. He worked alone thru his career, which by the end of high school would be financial advisory. He made his first real paycheck on the stock market. He met his friend Frank after graduating and the two enterprised stealing and selling car parts. They moved to Chernogorsk with the intention of continuing the sales and managed to go legit when the local market suffered from a recession. He bought a warehouse in the area. When Severograd was attacked, he locked himself inside and survived off the emergency supply. His workers either died from the infection or starvation. He has yet to meet up with his friend and has been alone since the outbreak. Recently, Ron reached his friend by means of radio. The two have made plans to meet up once again and continue the enterprise.
