My character is a Swedish woman named Jennifer Pachinko, who was an exotic hair model from Kalmar, Sweden. She did the hair for movie stars, politicians, and other high profile people. She was well known among some of the most influential people in Sweden, which made finding new clients for her very easy.
One day, she got an offer to become the hair stylist for a military general in Chernarus, who even offered to fly her out using his contacts. She packed her styling supplies, and headed out to the airport to find that the general had made reservations for her to be flown over on a C-130. After arriving, she could tell that something was off, as all the soldiers seemed on alert, and somewhat stressed. She was escorted to the general, and began setting up her equipment when the general got a call and began preparing to leave. Not certain what to do, she waited until she got thirsty, then went out to find something to drink. To her surprise, the base was almost empty, with only a couple guards left behind. She asked them what was going on, when they told her the general had gone out to set up checkpoints on the road to combat an infection that was spreading.
They waited for weeks for the general to return, and since they were running low on supplies, the guards, and Jennifer decided to go to the nearest city to gather more food and supplies. It was eerily quiet, and once they got to the store they found it full of people who were covered in blood, filty, and wounds they should have been dead from. Out of fear, the guard opening the door screamed in horror and began running, only to get surrounded by more infected who started biting and scratching at him. The guard that was with me seemed in shock, but somehow managed to push through it and get me to the edge of town, where we ran into a small horde. He managed to push through them and get both of us through, but he was wounded badly. We tried making our way back to the base, but he didn't make it. By the time I got to the military base, it had been overrun by the infected, so I had no choice but to go out on my own. Eventually, after walking for what felt like forever, I found myself tired, and hungry, near the shore.
