My Character Bear is an American who is former carpenter who served his time in the military and retired with honors. He was on a vacation to Chenarus when the outbreak happened, he first tried to catch a boat home but shortly after the boat was caught in a storm and crashed. He washed up to shore on a small row boat that they had for emergencies. He knew right away that he wasn't going to escape Chenarus without the help of others and he didn't want to see everyone turn on each other so he sent off in search of other survivors and help rebuild some maybe one day he can make it home. He set off to scavenge what he could and using his time in the military he knew he could help treat others with medical supplies and possibly protect innocents from the zombies and maybe even other survivors. He can also use his carpentry skills to help build encampments and maybe even start a new life in this new world, but his ultimate goal is to make it home to his wife and child. That is if the outbreak isn't already back home in America.
