James Novak was born in Los Angeles California on October 22 1990. His childhood was mostly uneventful, he lived in a bad neighborhood, and got involved with the wrong crowd at a young age. He (barely) graduated from high school, and did not attend college. He vagabonded as long as he could, traveling the country, but nowhere he looked could he find a place he wanted to stay. He used what money he had to go international, and toured Europe and Asia. On his way back east, he had to pass through a country called Chernarus. The country was known for its high political tensions, and James was warned to make his journey through quick. Distracted by the beauty of the Chernarussian countryside, James did not heed the warnings that he had been given, and when a strange outbreak of what would become the end of the world for James began, he didn’t even notice. Now trapped in a foreign country, with his life ruined, James blamed the political tension in the country for his troubles, whether he was correct or not. Had the country had been more stable, maybe he would have been able to make it out.
