Dr. Cody Roy is a Harvard-educated Primary Care Physician affiliated with Doctors Without Borders. When the AVM-FLA-19 Pandemic began late in 2019, Dr. Roy left behind his private practice and joined DWB, knowing other areas of the world had a greater need than the United States.
DWB sent Dr. Roy to Norway, where he and a small group of doctors worked as a travelling group, going wherever their expertise was needed. During his time in Norway, he worked with the government, WHO, Norwegian military & PLIKT.
Cody was lucky enough to have been on the road when the "vaccine effort" took place. The country road was missed by the trucks, potentially sparing Cody & the DWB team.
In the following days, he was seperated from the team and sent to the Nyheim area, where they assumed control of a small facility in Sorbu, south of the city. The situation there shocked Cody but, not in the way one would expect. Life almost felt normal, to a degree, at least at first. He assumed primary care duties for the residents on October 2nd, tending to non FLA-19 matters while the rest of the team responded to the pandemic. As the days passed, things began to deteriorate fast as refugees began flooding in as the AVM-FLA-19NS strain took hold. Then.. the bombs fell on Oslo, Cody watched in horror hoping everyone escaped... but he was smarter than that.
By the beginning of December, Cody's DWB group was overwhelmed by the influx of new patients. Cody was especially so, as the primary care physician. Refugees and residents from other Nyheim townships were being redirected to Sorbu where supplies were greater. As the month progressed, the issues compounded. One of the doctors was infected with FLA-19NS, taking 2 more with him. The 4th doctor, the groups surgeon, took his own life after seeing the infection firsthand... leaving just Cody.
With no authorities to track him in the area, Cody quietly just.. quit. He stopped his practice. There was no way for him do it alone, and in his mind, it was safer for everyone to let them fend for themselves. With that, he assimilated, he became a civilian, a survivor. He vowed to help if he could, but his health needed to come first.
Before the pandemic and outside of his work, Cody was an avid history nerd. He had heard in his first days in Norway that Russia had remobilized to the island of Namalsk, once a hotbed during the Cold War. This got him thinking: why Namalsk? What waa there. Then the spraying happened. His government contacts claimed not to know anything, likewise with PLIKT. Russia hasn't always had the best human rights record but would they go that far? He vowed that if he ever got a boat, he'd find out.
UPDATE: On the 28th of December, at the radio tower between Nyheim and Nyvoll, Doctor Roy was found dead, most likely due to injuries caused by an infected attack. Investigations suggest a horde may have overwhelmed him.
