My character is a man who is not native to the area. He is from the West, and practices western medicine. He was called to this country when the disease first started spreading. The CDC issued him with a mission to research the [incurable] disease to insure that it did not reach the coast of America. Instead he is now stranded in this wasteland with nothing but his knowledge. His main goal now is using his ideas of medicine to stay alive by using it by bargaining with other groups and perhaps being a medic for some factions. His name is John Stivers.
Before the outbreak John practiced medicine on the West coast of America as a hospitalist. His day to day routine consisted of treating people with unique diseases, and he cured many many people. Being a renowned physician, John sought to expand his career further and begin research in strange terminal illnesses. The CDC decided to employ John and given him a mission in the Balkan region. There were reports of strange diseases spreading around Chernarus. John arrived in Chernarus in a time of extreme tension, and tried to begin research however the disease struck before John could begin. With no way of contacting the CDC due to the chaos and quick nature of the situation, he has been left to defend against the chaotic situation with nothing but his wits.
