Chris Mcguelli an american immigrant who moved to Chernarus when he was around 7. His family moved to the quiet farm town of Zvir. Chris's family made a decent living of of farming and raising livestock. Until 2009 when the civil war had kicked into full effect. They had not taken any side and did whatever they had to so they could stay neutral and keep out of trouble which included providing food and shelter to both Chedaki and NAPA forces. After the war was over they went back to being simple farmers. Until Chernarus was placed under martial law. Chris's father began to worry about the possibility of another civil war and what he would do with his family which consisted of Chris who was 16 at the time and his wife Mary. He instantly began stocking up on supplies and teaching his family how to shoot using the rifles that the family had owned he also barricaded the home to defend in case of looters or bandits. Within the first week of the outbreak the family had heard news of rabid and unresponsive soldiers that were seriously injured and payed no mind while killing and eating livestock. Then it had escalated to people attacking and eating other people which sent everyone into a mass panic. Due to the huge traffic jams and riots police were not able to keep up with the growing number of calls for help which then caused civilians to go out and try to loot for resources. Chris's family had ran out of food quite quickly which caused his father to head out into the local towns to loot. They had managed to get by for a little over 2 months. Then one day both Chris's mother and father had began to get sick and begin coughing and sneezing. Which as they knew were the most prevalent side effect of the infection. By the next day both parents were dead. Without bearing to see his mother and father turn into one of those "zeds" as he had heard friends and neighbors call them, he had fled out of town and hid somewhere in one of the near villages.
