David Mack grew up in a small, run down orphanage in Detroit. After being abandoned by his father and his mother deciding she could not handle caring for him, she dropped him off at St. Peter’s Orphanage hoping he would find a better life. David however did not, as the orphanage was understaffed and underfunded, along with an abusive employee or two. David found that being able to fend for yourself was the only real way to accomplish anything in life; life would screw you nonstop, it was up to you to not just bounce back, but make something good of it. David eventually fell in with local crime which gave him the sense of family he never had growing up, and when he was nearly put away for life on charges of attempted murder and kidnapping, only a good friend of his bribing the local authorities saved him. He would later join the military to try and find a sense of purpose, becoming a United States Marine. The rank and file didnt seem to suit David however, as he later wound up a mercenary in Africa. The freelance gun for hire lifestyle seemed to suit David far more than service in the military, and David enjoyed himself for the first time in a long time. After a series of eventful jobs in Africa and a bit of soul searching finding his roots, he eventually took a job in Chernarus protecting a small port from Chedaki raids or from attacks by other revolutionaries. David would remain in Chernarus until he was trapped there by the infection, where he now happily puts that experience as a wandering merc to good use.
