Colonel Eric Michael
One of many high ranking officers in charge of Combined US Forces during the initial UN intervention during the start of the infection. Quickly though he had to flee as he lost control. As intel and structure deteriorated he conducted small scale anti-infection ops throughout the wilderness, even venturing over the Russian border, although returning not long after. His actions in the last few years are unknown and his resources are unknown to most. Now he has returned to the general mainland to try and organize whats left of local forces and UN Survivors. He believes in the United States but is willing to break the rules, even doing "evil" things for good reasons in his mind. He hopes to start clearing areas from the infection to set up society and rebuild. Rumors of Warships of deerisle might lead some to believe hes a NATO or UN or US agent operating in the ground zero. He has a soft spot for vodka and beer and chocolate. He keeps his past to himself and trys his best to maintain the professionalism of an officer.
He has been an officer in charge of infantry, armor and spec ops. Participating in the wars of Iraq and Afghanistan and many military stations in Europe and the states. Born in the capital hes use to politics and despises the red tape of them. He is willing to do evil things for the people of America and the world. Evils today will save freedoms tomorrow. Peace is nice but truely can never be achieved and he lives by this so he trys to push the war far away from home. He believes that all survivors must do their best for the greater good.
He is divorced and isnt looking for anything new, his ex wifes current life is unknown and he doesnt care. Most believes he doesnt have children. Loves dogs and is known for going against US regulations and having a pet found in his area of operations, giving his command the nickname "Dog Master" although he truely is called overlord. He is an atheist but doesnt hate on those who believe, loves the quote "If there is a god he will have to beg for my forgiveness." He has no love for the infected and sees them as "soulless husks of flesh" and believes that they shouldnt be weaponized. He sees the evil groups (slavers, bandits ect) as a product of human nature and believes that while not trusted, they can be worked with for the greater good. He is willing to end one life to save a hundred and enslaving one life is about the same to him, although he will try to avoid it. He doesnt want to fight human groups as much as he wants to kill the infected. He hopes that by returning to the public eye on the mainland he can rally the survivors for a new society.
Long live the United States of America and Humanity.
