Mika is a foreign exchange student from a program which aimed to help provide youth from Chernarus a fresh perspective studying and living in the UK. She eagerly volunteered for this program (loves travelling) and was soon studying at what was the Elektrozavodsk Advanced School. Once the chaos started she initially tried to get on a plane home to her family but this plan quickly faltered and she has found herself trapped in this foreign country in the midst of it all. Mika is at her core a good natured person and does her best to keep to herself, helping others when possible. However she does have a temper especially if treated poorly and has been known to snap and attack people, but NEVER killing them, finding killing those left living to be a ridiculous and evil idea. She also tries to avoid killing the walkers as she find no pleasure in it at all.
She mostly keeps to herself, hunting and foraging to survive, hoping against hope for rescue and keeping her ears on the radio and emergency PA systems around Chernarus every day. She communes with her Goddess every night for help against the horrors of the world. She still has hope, even if it fades and flickers over time.
