Xherdan Baur (29), born in Sweden by Swiss parents and an ex-sergeant of the Swiss guard.
When Xherdan was 21 he went to his home country for the compulsory military service. In the army he found out about the Swiss Guard or the Pope's personal "army".
They were actively recruiting and Xherdan joined, he had always wanted to serve a greater cause and this was his calling. The guard put him through extensive training to hone his abilites and soon he was worthy of guarding the catholic faith's leader, the Pope himself.
Xherdan thrived in the guard and soon he moved up in the hierarchy. After 6 years of service he was promoted to the rank of "Wachtmeister" or sergeant. Now he was worthy of personally guarding the Pope on his travels abroad.
On a visit to the U.S, Xherdan was tasked with being closest to the Pope, protecting him with his life and keeping his eyes on him at all times. They were walking from an escort vehicle to the destination when out of nowhere, a man charges the Pope with a kitchen knife. Xherdan was stunned, for a moment he forgot all his training and went into shock. He just stood there as the assilant attacked the Pope.
After this event, Xherdan was flown back to Switzerland, being dishonorably discharged from his service. Even though the Pope survived the assasination attempt, the shame was imminent and everyone in Switzerland knew who he was. He couldn't walk the streets without getting taunted and threatened by people. For two years he lived isolated in a small apartment, growing more and more hateful toward other people.
An outcast, not wanted by anyone. Xherdan decided to move somewhere where no-one would recognize him, Georgia. He booked a flight that would take him to Batumi where he could hopefully get a new, fresh start.
The life in Georgia was tough. Finding a job was next to impossible not knowing the language. Xherdan still had money saved from his time in the Swiss Guard as they had paid for all accomodations.
People starting to act strange, even though he didn't understand what they said, he could still tell that the continent was shaken by turmoil with Russian fighter jets bombing nearby areas on the news. People started avoiding others. When he spoke to his friends on the phone, there were talks of cannibals eating other people, alive!
He decided to get on board a ship to escape from the mainland. A cruiser was departing from Batumi on the 21st. People were trying to escape as word had spread several cities were overrun by cannibals!
Xherdan was asleep below deck when all of a sudden, the ship hit something in the water and started sinking. He made it to a lifeboat and got ashore in one piece. There was no rescue team there to help, in fact, there were no people at all.
The only safe place was the woods. From his time in the military he knew how to survive for a while without supplies...
He was robbed of all his supplies and died somewhere in the woods south of Severograd.
