I was just a regular guy named Burke McTavish in the DayZ world at the beginning of the outbreak. My character came to Chernarus to work as a truck driver. He was born and raised in Indiana and raised primarily by his mother. He had a average life going from place to place and job to job after completing high school before leaving the USA to Chernarus to try his luck. He moved to Chernarus to start over and find a new life since most of his friends and family had passed away or fell out of touch in the US. Since the the outbreak he's managed to survive by staying in the shadows and being overly cautious and following his gut instincts. When meeting new people he always offers a helping hand in peace and only becomes hostile to those who threaten his survival.
