This American is very intelligent. He earned a scholarship to the Purdue University School of Aeronautics and Astronautics to become an aerospace engineer until he found himself in the middle of a war-torn Chernarus. His intellect and determination will keep him alive in this environment. He has the ability to create new allies quite easily, and surviving in a wasteland such as this should be a rather easy task. With his experience in engineering, he should also be able to fix and broken down vehicles or any repairs needed on a vehicle.
