Scott is a former small town police officer turned CIA operative. He did work in Afghanistan along-side navy seals to seek out information on known or unknown terrorists. He "sold his soul" to a small classified CIA faction (The Jackals) that worked in Mexico and infiltrated cartels for information. Among the news of a zombie outbreak, The Jackals went rogue and locked down their underground facility in Mexico. Scott couldn't make it out and save anyone he might've known in the past or The Jackals would've killed him. He grew tired of hiding and the Jackals' leadership decided to go on a mission to ground zero of the zombie outbreak to search for a cure and make it back to the facility for safekeeping and manufacturing. Scott was dispatched in a small helicopter with a crew of 8 other guys to the wasteland of Chernarus. They would search for anyone who knew of the cure. The team was preparing to land in the country but their helicopter was shot down by survivors looking for gear and supplies. Scott was seemingly the only survivor. Armed with his long range communication device to stay in contact with The Jackals; he went to the highest points he could find in the country to relay messages to The Jackals. Communications were randomly cut off and he lost all contact with them. Determined to gather intel and one day find a way to relay information back The Jackals, he took on his former CIA alias of "Irish" and began to search Chernarus for survivors who knew of a cure.
