Born January 31st, 1996 in Harlem NY, Madrious's early life was plagued with parental arguments and domestic abuse. At the age of 3 his father seemingly disappeared, never to be seen again, leaving immense strain on the family and leaving the his young mother, Anastasia Perry, alone with three boys. As he grew he and his brothers took on much larger responsibilities, instead of focusing on school, the focused on supporting their family, getting involved in street crimes, selling crack. At the age of 7, both of his brothers died in a shootout over a drug deal, killed by a subset gang within the area, leaving him and his family with heavy grief. With a lesser strain on the family due to their deaths, Madrious paid more attention to his studies and gained an interest in the Armed Forces, scoring high on the ASVAB, Madrious became a field medic in the U.S. Army. Signing for 4 years, he went on two deployments during his active duty and went home. Suffering from PTSD and yearning for combat once more, he volunteered as a medic in Chernarus during the beginning of the outbreak, fleeing from his assigned post in Kabanino once overran.
