In the year 2049, Carter Rivers was born in a small town called Reine, Norway. His father, Ryan Rivers had relocated them to Norway after the many conflicts in Chernarus during the years. His father had brought along some refugees from Chernarus, which mostly consisted of Americans and just a few russians. After much traveling through Russia, they had passed through Finland and Sweden. After traveling for 5 months, they had reached a small town in Norway called Reine. Carter spent his childhood learning from the many refugees his father brought with him. He was taught how to conduct trade, hunt, and was given a basic education. As he learned more about trade, he would get maps of trade routes to many parts of Norway that connected to a town called Nyheim. While learning about Nyheim, he found it quite interesting and had dreamt of going there. However, with him being so young his father refused. He waited until he was 20, and had set out with a small group of people. After 4 weeks of traveling, he reached Nyheim. As he looked around, he noticed a town in ruins. While looking around, he noticed these weird symbols with a name embroidered across them “PLIKT”. After looking around, he was stopped by a small squad of what looked to be, Soldiers. They brought him to one of the burned down buildings and proceeded to question him. During his questioning, they had “tested” him for any illnesses. He would notice the black and red patch that would say “PLIKT”. After looking at the state of the village he was at, he wanted to use his talents for a good purpose; He would then begin to try and establish a shop within Nyheim to provide survivors with valuable resources.
