James North is 29 years old. He used to work as a kynesiologist in a sports clinic in Vancouver before the outbreak. He also did 2 years in the Canadian reserve ( never deployed ) as a logistic officer. He decided to quit the military after getting married with his wife Evelynn and shortly after had a child named Marie. Everything in James life was going great until his wife and daughter died in a car accident. This is where is hate for alcohol comes from. They got hit by a drunk driver on their way back from the grocery store. James was devastated. He had lost everything and had no family to support him as he was abandoned by his parents at the age of 3. His dear wife was from Chernarus and wished to be buried in her homeland. James took the plane all the way to Chernarus to organize and attend the funerals. About 3 days after the funeral the outbreak started and James was unable to go home. He thought that Evelynn would like for him to take care of her family so he went out to find them. He found them in their summer house by the lake all shot, it appeared as if they all killed themself to avoid the horrors outside. He took a shovel a started digging, he gave all of them a proper burial and stayed in the house scared and depressed.
