Jobby Yezzi was a troubled youth and only child growing up in Seattle, WA in the late 90s and early 00's. With a father who was a teacher and a mother who worked in a factory, Jobby didn't see his parents very often growing up, leading him to find home with some unsavory characters. Despite this, Jobby had and always will have a love and affinity for the woods- maybe it's the isolation, the simplicity, something about a space that no others have touched interests him beyond all other things. This led Jobby later in life to abandon school, family, and lead a life hitching trains, boats, and buses as a stowaway to explore the unexplored in the world and find a sense of self. This lifestyle would lead him to Chernarus via the port of Svetlojarsk shortly before the outbreak. Jobby traveled into the woods after stealing supplies from locals. He discovered the outbreak long after is started because he ran out of food and came back to civilization to steal more supplies and found a severely different town then once before.
