Todd came from Chicago growing up in a decent part of the south side. His parents lived paycheck to paycheck and could barley afford to pay for college. He found success in school but never truly felt that he did enough for people. After college he pursued the army, against his parents best wishes. He got in easily and succeeded in an infantry role. He formed many friendships during this period, two tours to be exact, and picked up a lot of skills. It didn’t take long for him to be picked up by a CBRN defense unit where he fit in best considering his studying radiology in college. After his first tasking with the new unit he got notice that his parents were killed in a hit and run. This only made him push himself harder to succeed, which attributed to him and his unit being tasked with Chernarus.
