Byron Miller an American who had lost his family in a car crash and soon after that his marriage ended in divorce. His life seemed to be spiraling out of control. He decided he needed to move and get away from everything. He started his new life on the cost of Greece, making new friends, he quickly got engaged to a new girl he met who was the world to him. But Before they got married he got a new job as a Bartender on a Cruise ship called Costa Risacca. He told her that after he gets back from the 2 week cruise they will plan the wedding. This was his first time on the job, not to mention his first cruise. The cruise ship, carrying around 3,000 passengers set off. About a week into the cruise, Word of the outbreak quickly spread a crossed the ship. The crew quickly announced that the TV services were down to try to keep panic off the ship, but it didn't help. The people started going crazy trying to get more information but the crew continued to try and keep the news quiet. Byron started trying to call his new lover but would never get an answer eventually giving up. The weather started to get pretty bad, but as the weather got bad so did the passengers. Fights and riots broke out on the ship. As the crew tried to keep things calm the massive storm got worse tossing things back and forth on the ship and quickly the rampage of passengers stopped as people were trying to keep from getting smashed by furniture. The captain ordered everyone to get to their rooms. But not soon enough. Outside the ship was being tossed around and it became hard for the Captain to keep the ship straight. On the 24th of July 2017, the cruise ship struck a rock formation in the Green Sea filling the lower portion of the ship with water. This quickly sank the ship. Byron was able to get onto a raft before the ship sank. The storm raged on as he watched the ship sink. The front portion of the ship going down first with the tail end sticking out. Flames spilling out of some of the windows, he watched in horror, the ship he was just on. Everybody on the ship all likely to die. He can see people jumping out of windows and into the water. Unsure if any other rafts were able to make it off of the ship he quickly moved on to shore. He finally landed somewhere on the outskirts of Chernogorsk. Eerily quiet with faint screams in the distance he moves out, trying to remember the basics of survival he learned in the boy scouts. His journey into the Downfall of humanity begins.
