Had been born and raised in Austin, TX, and was in the American Armed Forces as a Marine, and had joined MARSOC for a bit. On his third tour he had been shot three times, and suffered shrapnel wounds from grenades and close shots. He tried to make a therapy business later on in Austin, but his PTSD made it nearly impossible, and it was a bust. After feeling left out and useless for to long, he decided he wanted to do something, and get his mind straight. He applied for a job as press for AAN News. On one of his reports he went to Chernarus to do reports on the recent outburst of violence. Once there, the local military blocked them off from leaving the country, and they were trapped. He walked off in the night to see what the locals thought of it, figured he could still do some of his job, so his crew had went to a small village. They were surprised when they were attacked brutally by almost the whole village, and the rest of the citizens were huddled up in buildings. After most of his friends were beat to death, a few of the Citizens walked out and shot at the violent attackers, and he was again trampled and knocked unconscious. He had woken up in the woods where he is now.
