As the spread of the infection got worse, Soviet paramedic Alex Gorbachev and a group of fellow paramedics had been assigned to aid Novigrad. As they had arrived chaos was already present in the city. Alex knew that staying in the chaos ridden city would be suicide. And so Alex went to part ways from the city and into the rest of Chenarus. He witnessed his best friend in the Capital lose his life to the infected, which ended up being the main driving reason of his Depart. But he is not too familiar with the rest of Chenarus. Alex would have nothing to help his survival other than his knowledge of medical sciences, which without any proper equipment at the time can be tricky. Alex generally cares about other peoples lives and will go through thick and thin to aid someone. However, he is not perfect. Alex leaving the Capital was indeed a cowardly move and goes to show he is not entirely brave and can be somewhat selfish of his own life. Alex has seen what society has come to, and knows it will be a while until order is brought back, or if it will happen at all. He will do his best to survive, and is seeking anyone in need of assistance, but Alex's end goal is to find a community that he can contribute to and live an enjoyable life. He knows that every day is a day of mystery, and has just arrived in South Zagoria. which he has heard there a large infected population lurks.
