Nick was living a rather simple life in his hometown of Deerfoot Alberta. He got a job young as an oil rig worker and made a lot of money. It was hard work, but he didn't mind. After he'd saved up enough money, his wife asked him to move somewhere quiet, somewhere peaceful. They did some research, and decided to move to a little town in a small country called Chernarus. The town they moved to was called Nagornoye, though neither of them spoke ChernaRussian. They learned a little, and had help from one of the local farmers, though by the time they were starting to learn, the outbreak tore through the countryside.
In the ensuing chaos, Nick lost his wife, was forced to do unspeakable things to stay alive, and had lost hope for a time. He had managed to get out of the area with the evacuations though after the outbreak spread, he decided to move back. Now nick has no family, no home, nothing to really call his own. He can only hope things will, one day, go back to the way they were before.
