Vaughn Enfield was born an only child to a middle-class family in the town of Fairbanks, Alaska. The earliest thing he was known to do to him was being baptized into the Presbyterian faith. From then, his family moved to the more remote town of Barrow Alaska, a town on the most northern part of Alaska. From there he continued his rather uneventful education but focused on more outdoorsman and church related activities. While living in Barrow he became very fascinated with the Presbyterian minister Dr. Henry Greist, a doctor and aforementioned minister who helped serve the town of Barrow in the early 1900s. This proved to be a role model for the young Vaughn, and he became deeply interested in the way of learning how to help people via faith. His efforts lead him to be able to take part a multitude of missions throughout his life, mostly into the isolated interior of Alaska
IN order to be a good missionary, Vaughn had to learn the culture of those he was attempting to reach. His first step was learning Inupiaq as a second language during high school, and also adopting some Inuit customs. But for him, this was the rather easy part. The hard part was learning how to live in such remote areas. And thus, he learned the important skills of being a survivalist, which included being a thru hiker, living off the land, and being able to craft makeshift resources for him to use. Once he had reached the location he was assigned to, he began his work. Due to his father also being a carpenter by trade, he helped fix any furniture or even whole renovations of the small cabins. During this time, he also learned basic first aid. It was nothing too special, but learning it helped improve his relations with natives. The biggest thing that he got interested in living this frontier life, was how they got resources. The intricate system of resupplying by air was something that caught his eye. And while he was on his missions, he researched on how to become a Bush pilot.
THEREFORE, Vaughn went to further his education, into the University level. He went back to his birth town of Fairbanks, and studied in the major of Wildlife Biology, and with such he was intrigued. His home state was filled with unique flora fauna, but something from the inside urged him to see even more unique specimens. From there he began research on the origin of birds in the country of New Zealand. Vaughn 's life went well after this research, eventually graduating and starting his path to a bachelor's in wildlife biology. But still, deep inside he thirsted to research the most unique specimens of all. But this came with a caveat. Who couldn't really afford the majority of college and found solace in a deal. The United States Army offered him a 4-year full ride scholarship, with the contractual promise of being a commissioned officer for 4 years after college.
LUCKILY Vaughn Enfield was always a duty focused person Between the years of 2014-2020, he just stood for service of ideals that were not his own. He was commissioned into the Officer Corps of the Army. His first deployment was joining one of the 9000 men in Afghanistan, and was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant, and as the typical American Infantry Officer. While not much fighting happened in the country of Afghanistan, aside from the odd Taliban skirmish, he was shown as a competent leader, and was moved to a NATO deployment in Poland, flying Chinooks. But soon his service came to an end at the rank of Captain, and he continued his life's work.
INTERESTED in the European way of life, he decided to spend a few more years in Europe before returning home to the states. He ended up in a country similar to his own state, Norway. He settled in, on his own time he researched the Avian life of the area, but for a more professional job he was just a search and rescue pilot with the Norwegian Red Cross Search and Rescue Corps, making do with the skills he learned in the Army. His temporary visit into Norway however, seemed to be quickly becoming permanent.
BY 2020, the world began to crumble. Consolidation had systematically ruined humanity's immune system. But, Thanks to the skepticism of Vaughn's parents, they were almost unscathed, and now Vaughn had a choice. Isolate more against a disease he knows would never affect him, or to help out with those that didn't have the resistance. He chose the latter. Vaughn decided he would help in the Arctic Circle as he had some ties to the region, as he used the aeronautical resources there to help with his bush piloting escapades. But he was too little, but not too late. He once again fell into the same mindset of helping a few isolated villages, along the Arctic Circle, using the old Alta Airport as a base of operations for himself and a small team of mechanics and suppliers. In which they easily survived the harsh winter, as the airport was made to stay working disconnected from society, stocked with everything they needed for years. But the only issue was with water. So alone, Vaughn Enfield set out, looking for a source of water to send back to his team, and on this Journey, he found himself in Nyheim.
Most events are recorded here
WITH Vaughns new position at the Lead of the Security forces, life for him began to shape up. Where his life before the outbreak stripped him of family and made himself lost in his mind, being with NHR left him with picking of the pieces of a shattered mind. He people he could rely on, people he trusted with his life. People like Drew, an almost father to him, a Man who suffered the same problems that Vaughn had, yet he still lived. People like Elles, a true brother, one that filled the void of the ones who had left Vaughn, someone Vaughn knew would by his side no matter what the world threw. Even People like Cheryl, who had given him a place and a purpose in this strange new world, someone who made Vaughn felt like he was finally on the track of doing something right in his life.
Has Its Reaction
NEWTONS Third law states that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. This was a curse upon Vaughn. By May, there was news that a sweeping horde would make its way through
Nyhiem. And like the start of the Outbreak, a panic began to set in. Initially, NHR was going to help the people that didn't or couldn't evacuate to some far-off land. Drew left the camp, went south to find more members of his PMC group, Knight Medical, with recovery and fighting the hordes set upon them. A faint hope filled Vaughn's heart, but it was blown away when one day Cheryl just wasn't there. She had run, choosing to preserve her own life. Days later Elles caught a bullet, and while Vaughn did his best to stabilize the wound, there was something internal that got him. And Vaughn sat, with his best friend lifeless in his arms. He swore that if Elles could've gotten better medical help he would've pulled through. After burying the body, he felt his body fill with a rage and grief, reducing his mental state into something of a feral man.
WEEKS later Vaughn found himself being carried out of a ditch. And on a pale horse rode his Savior, a man by the name of Anatoly. A Chernarussian military man, Anatoly and Vaughn began to talk about each other's lives as Vaughn recovered of from his weeks of self-torture. Each other's life story was shared, and for a week they just wandered post-outbreak Norway together. The dynamic had reminded Vaughn of Elles, and as such he told his new friend about the tragedy of Elles. Anatoly was moved to action by his story, and suggested that the two should revisit Nyhiem, to put an end to the Tragedy. And thus, the duo walked forth, back into Vaughns past.
