Lieutenant Cliff Dallas, is a private(ex-military) contractor who was trapped with the JTF during the outbreak. Prior to the outbreak he went through BUDS and is a certified badass as he is a Navy Seal who has completed multiple military tours. After the age of 35 he retired from his military life and worked as a private contractor under a company named Lone Star. During his time at this company saw little military action, most of his jobs were calm private security jobs for US Ambassadors in hostile countries. So, when an opportunity such a classified mission to a hostile country came across him, Cliff Dallas jumped at the opportunity to get back in the fight. Little did he know what he was actually getting himself involved with. He suspected a simple search and destroy of some insurgence, but what happened was very different. Their mission, to invade the country of Chernarus and gather intel on "Z" and extract anyone who was not infected or contagious through a quarantine zone. However, with the outbreak spreading so quickly, the JTF battalion Lt. Dallas was with basically turned into a bunch of paranoid killmongores who would shoot on site anyone they suspected of infection without proper protocol. Eventually little by little they turned on one another and Lt. Dallas being a private contracted military operative ended up stranded in Chernarus to survive on his own. With the now growing number of both "Z" and bandits looting the area the main goal for Lt. Dallas was to find out what was happening with the rest of the world outside Chernarus. Had the outbreak spread from country to country? What were global casualty numbers looking like? If the world was really lost then it was Lt. Dallas' job to protect those who cannot protect themselves. He is a just man who fights the battles that need to be fought and will do what it takes to survive.
