In the days before the Chernarus conflicts, Lee Man-An was sent in with a diplomatic mission to Chernarus to discuss foreign joint investments with Russia in the Chernarus region. The natural resources of the area was a gold mine for Asian interests, and a joined effort with Russia could only strengthen their bonds. This, of course was all before the infections, and during a time of relative peace for the war torn area after the bloody 2009 civil war. But as things started to get interesting, and the first whiffs of infection rose up, the mission was delayed and kept in the region while Beijing roared with activity. With Americans encroaching and Russia flexing their muscles, China had to show some power and were thus arming for a full scale mobilization of their Pacific Fleet. But as the world became more aware of the infection, all resources meant to back up Lee and the diplomatic mission were pulled back into the defense of the homeland. The diplomat had decided to stay in Chernarus, to stay with his newfound lover and their son, barely a month old. Lee was left out to dry in the backwaters of Russia, his unit eventually started to separate due to conflicting desires. Lee amongst others stayed in Chernarus, while the rest went to mainland Russia seeking passage back to China. He still doesn't know why he stayed, even as his comrades either left him or succumbed to the new world order. Was it the fleeting duty he had to the suffering natives, his mission to protect and serve the diplomat? Or maybe the fear of returning to the mainland, only to find himself arrested or even executed for not completing his mission. All doubts were erased as news of the spreading infection broke through the ever shrinking cacophony of radio transmissions. China was dying and the Green Sea was even worse off. Lee wasn't even combat trained, as he served in the diplomat's private entourage, cooking his meals and treating injuries that the Chernarus wilderness might cause. He was a fledgling army medic when the diplomat picked him up, saving him from the fields of war and training him to be a diplomat like him. Lee joined the diplomat on his many excursions across the world, learning English, and struggling with Russian. Eventually Lee was separated from the rest of his comrades, and the diplomat when a storm broke their helicopter apart. Finding solace in the bottle, and helping others where he can, Lee seeks redemption in his own eyes, and to rejoin his lost comrades. What can Lee do, but to survive in this new world, clinging onto old morals and selfish desires that were crushed along with the ashes of the civilization that created it.
