My character, Thomas Brookes is an american ex marine sniper from Texas. Born in Austin, January 3rd, 1986, his father taught him how to shoot and hunt at a young age, giving him the basic skills needed to survive in the wild. After high school, Thomas joined the marines, and immediately stood out during marksmanship training. He was selected to train for the elite USMC sniper corp, and graduated second in his class. Thomas was on holiday in Chernarus during the outbreak, and as society began to crumble, he retreated to the forest, scavenging a rifle, food and gear, vying to get away from the urban centers. His previous profession being in the marine sniper corps prepared him immensely for post apocalyptic life. Proficiency in hunting, building shelter, finding clean sources of water, along with numerous other survival tactics, including stealth, this character is an ideal scout, screening movement, reconnoitering intel of hostile factions, and is highly capable of improvising in any situation. Thomas, once he has been able to gather sufficient gear, water, and food, would be looking for a group that would honorable, responsible, and willing to help people who need to learn how to survive themselves.
