Kenneth grew enjoying the outdoors, hunting and fishing which lead to an interest in pursing a career as a biologist. He came in Chernarus to work on a thesis paper for his masters degree in ichthyology from the university of Missouri after he was presented a unique opportunity for research . With the rapid increase in coal mining and industrial growth following the 2009 civil war, native carp (Ctenopharyngodon idella) that began exhibiting legions and strange growth believed to be from these activities. Despite discouragement from local government research was granted to a team of local scientists and foreign researchers to look into what was causing these growths. He flew to Chernarus, leaving the United states for the first time, and set out with a small team of other researchers to begin collecting samples with carp in the northern mountain streams. After several weeks some of the other researchers coming back from a few local towns to get supplies talked about protests and unrest, in the distance we would occasionally hear whats sounded like gunfire from automatic weapons and some helicopters flying ahead. One day a research technician came back with what appeared to be a bite mark on his right arm, he claimed from a drunk man acting wild outside a supermarket. After treating the wound with antiseptic Kenneth went to asleep where he awoke to the sound of blood curtailing screams. The camp was in disarray as the people he had come to call friends began tearing each other limb from limb. He was able to make an escape running into the forest as he heard the wild, inhuman screams echo throughout the woods behind him. Now Kenneth is trying to survive in a foreign land, looking for a way back home.
