His parents, always having high hopes for Vic, encouraged him to go to medical school and become a doctor, Vic, not taking to schooling dropped out and enlisted into the Coast Guard where he hoped he could set him self up with some sense of meaning. His life in America was very ordinary and anyone who met him would have said he was a "good young man" and for the most part that was true. After his second deployment his mother asked him to go along with her to visit their family in Chernarus, as his grandmother was becoming ill. Victor agreed wishing to meet her before she died. When first landing he took in his surroundings and noted the beauty of a land which he really had no bearing of. It wasn't long before all hell broke loose, the news began to spread of a disease engulfing the region. Military began entering the town and roadblocks became a common occurrence on the way to the grocery. Next came rations, yet no answers were given. The day after the rations began the infection spread to Berezino, while Vic was still in town. He saw the infected rush through the streets ripping apart those too slow to run or simply caught out by the mass. Victor rushed home, the door to the cabin sitting ajar. As he approached the sound of ripping flesh and the stench of death engulfed his sensed and he threw the door open to see one of those monsters tearing his family apart. Victor in disbelief ran and never looked back. Since then he has been traveling alone avoiding survivors and, simply, trying to survive.
