A city boy from the United States William was an average performer in high school and seeing as college was much to expensive for his parents to pay for without a scholarship William decided to take up his local Army recruiters deal and join the US Army. William figured he could serve a few years, get out, and maybe even catch a ride to college on the G.I. Bill. After completing Basic at Fort Benning William was assigned to Europe and eventually Romania to help guard the various radar and missile defense sights dispersed throughout the country. While on transfer the outbreak in Chenarus occurred and seeing as US soldiers where in short supply William was assigned to a unit that was tasked with rescuing US citizens and diplomats from the Chenarus region. While extracting a US diplomat from Chernogorsk the LZ was overrun with what William had coined "zombies". William narrowly escaped with a few of his squad mates to a rooftop of an apartment building in Chernogorsk. Eventually William and his squaddies were able to fight there way down to the streets where in a running gunfight one by one Williams friends and fellow soldiers were picked off by the ever growing hoard behind them. William ran as fast as he could out of Cherno and by the time he finally stopped to rest at a cabin outside of the city he was the only one left. Stuck in Chernarus and looking for a way out William wanders the wasteland trying to establish contact with US forces and find a way back to the states.
