Shannon Birch (Male). He was a counterintelligence agent from the US military, recently discharged and hired within the private sector. The prospects of private contracting through vested interests in private military contractors was reaping the benefits of the civil war. He recently traveled to Chernarus as a way to be an advisor for the Chernarussian Defense Force during the tail end of the civil war in 2008. As he began his new career he embedded into Chernarus culture and became a great asset to the CDF. Following the civil war, His skills became dull and he began his swirling demise into alcoholism. Through developed friendships with the upper echelon of the CDF they maintained his employment disregarding his substance abuse. He would meet with those he would advise with the creeping headache of hangovers and bloodshot eyes. This became his daily routine, His job performance severely declining. The situation worsened in the spring of 2017, with the rise of tensions with Russia.
He was required to assist during the initial phases until the country was overwhelmed with the infection. He found he could no longer return to his home. He lost home in Kamensk, witnessing the brutal infection. Surviving through the displacement and brutality.
He became swept up in the infection and has survived since the initial outbreak. He is not your typical "Hero" as he survived because of cowardice he showed during the initial infection. He now keeps his old profession a secret as he does not want people to rely upon him for direction. This is the most difficult thing he has come to see and he, like any normal person will do what it takes to survive. He is actively searching for means of escape from Chernarus.
He is not a world weary individual an often looks for the best in people. He will not resort to acts of violence, but sometimes, when need be he can make some difficult decisions for self preservation. Throughout his survival so far on Chernarus he has become hardened, but will offer help to those in need when it is required of him. He can be relatively reserved when meeting people as he has been "burned" in the past. He approaches situations carefully, often observing before initiating contact with individuals.
His alignment is chaotic good so to speak. He will lean toward the good choice, but often lean away from the "policy" of confined rules if it does not align with what he believes. An example would be if he was friends with a group then found they were slavers he would no longer associate with the group, but he would not go out of his way to save the slaves. That is of course, unless he has developed a bond with one that is in custody. At that point he may do what is necessary.
