Hunter McMillan, born in Greenville Michigan, lived in a small cabin with his mother and father just outside of Greenville for most of his life. Hunter. at the age of 17 found a knack for shooting rifles that his father had used in an earlier time of his life. Hunter's father, was in the United States Special Operations Forces (SOF) as a long range marksman for 20 years. Hunter's father's name was never known by anyone, due to his skill in marksmanship. The only name people knew Hunter's father by, was "Flicker" because that's the last thing his enemies saw before a bullet was put into their left eye. Flicker died from a heart attack at the age of 72, and his mother died 10 days later from a chronic case of tuberculosis. After Hunter experienced such a tragedy, he cut off all communication from the outside world, including his girlfriend to make sure nobody that he loved died ever again. Hunter started to practice 24/7 with his father's old rifles to eventually carry on Flicker's legacy, but he still needed an alias, just like his father. After the outbreak, Hunter thought that he could take out the zombies, and help others whilst staying discreet. He got a ride from a private helicopter and parachuted into an unknown Chernarus forest.
