It's easy to win over his trust because he is a sympathetic leader. He will do whatever he can to keep his people safe. His nickname is Marcus, and was originally from Chernarus. He was an officer for the town of Gorka. After hearing about attacks in the northern parts of Chernarus, he decided to flee to South Zagoria. While on his way, he found another survivor. He claimed the infected were moving into the towns that still stood. After a short conversation, and the two parting ways, he knew that nowhere was safe anymore. He knew the only way to survive was to defend himself and people with him. Nothing of his past life remained. The only thing he could do was assemble a camp of survivors and hopefully start reconstruction. After all the happened, Marcus decided to head north to where he heard before he fled Gorka, that the infection had started. He knew he needed to collect food, water, supplies to setup a camp, and hopefully a weapon or two. He would try to convince anyone who he found to come with him, and recreate what Chernarus had once been. He hoped to find someone who had known entirely what had happened, but he never gets a fully story, or he got conflicting stories. That leads him to today, where he was part of a group that was massacred by a rival group who needed their supplies. Nobody survived but Marcus, and he knew to flee the area in case the rival group which he didn't know who they were came back. He is now on the run.
