Steve Collins was born in Edinburgh and during his early life never really had any friends, his father would take him on fishing trips and Steve became pretty good at it. When he was 16 years old he left school and began working on many trawler ships which would take him all over the world and he met many different people. None of which he would consider friends and would only stay with one ship long enough to earn his pay. While docked at Chernarus he was in a bar when the infection spread. He managed to find a boat and lived on the ocean for a time catching fish for food but he has decided that it is time he went back onto the land in search for other survivors and more supplies, he has been completely disconnected from the infection and isn't sure what life is like anymore.
