Joseph Steiner was born and raised to a small wealthy family in a rural village called Ruddington. His father of Austrian descent was a surgeon and his mother a vetinarian nurse.
From a young age Joseph had always been one for British tradition despite his Austrian blood. He would often accompany his also traditional father on shooting trips and fox hunts in the countryside.
Although growing up somewhat cuccooned in the rural countryside, Joseph had always yearned for adventure.
His story began at age 13 when he was enrolled by his parents to the esteemed Eton boarding college. In his time there he particularly excelled in sports and fitness, taking a particular liking to rugby and polo.
After he finished at Eton at age 18, he decided to quench his thirst for adventure, and despite his mother's protests, enrolled at RMAS Sandhurst to begin his training as an army officer.
After passing out of Sandhurst, he took up his role as 2nd Lieutenant. Although initially finding it hard to gain the respect of his men as a young officer, he carried on with his work and eventually gained the rank of Major at age 32.
König and his men were dispatched to Chernarus as part of the UN peacekeeping operation.
