A Canadian zoologist with a specialization in carnivorous land mammals, Mitch had just entered into the comfortable and well-worn road of family life having married his long-time girlfriend, a native of Chernarus. What was supposed to be a short trip of a couple of weeks back to her motherland to meet her family turned into an extended stay in the harsh landscape of Chernarus after the disaster struck. Having lost his wife, not to the dead, but to human bandits in the aftermath of the fall, Mitch has no grand ideas of revenge, or justice, or cleaning up the streets of Chernarus. Instead he finds himself teetering over the precipice of complete hopelessness with only the most basic desire for survival keeping him from falling into the abyss. Mitch finds himself more at ease in the wildnerness alone than among the survivors, having lost his only connection to his past life. His life has come down to the next meal, the next drink, the next sleep, and the avoidance of all the thoughts that clamour for his attention in all the quiet moments.
