My character's name is Tuomas Emppu, born on 17 September 1977 in a small town in rural Romania, and before the outbreak he was part of a metal band that he brought together. He was performing with his band in Chernarus when the outbreak happened. The band had quite a following so there were a lot of fans present at the concert and at first they didn't notice that the crowd started eating each other. When the song they were playing finally ended they noticed the horror in front of them. They started running as fast as they could, but unfortunately 2 of the band members were caught by the zombies climbing on the stage. Thankfully for Tuomas, he had finished his military service that was mandatory in his country so he was somewhat prepared for the fight for survival that was coming next. Only 2 of the band members survived including Tuomas. They decided that their best bet was to go for the coast and find a boat because zombies can't swim. Unfortunately though, plans never go smoothly and by the time they reached the coast, they were captured by a group of survivors that had weapons and Tuomas' only friend was killed by them. Alone and terrified, Tuomas used his survival skills to escape the group when they weren't paying much attention and he was on the run ever since.
