Born in the 90’s in Seattle, The Dailey brothers had a fairly standard childhood outside of having a schizophrenic brother and their mother dying during in their early childhoods. So, a pretty non standard childhood.
At the age of 10 Darion, the middle of the three brothers, was diagnosed with Schizophrenia. Prone to hallucinations, both visual and auditory, the family as a whole decided not to tell him as he was always a touchy person. They simply maintained that he was a ‘special person’ and that he had a vivid imagination. This frequently led to people at school attempting to bully Darion, but Rylan and Avery were usually there to help out in whatever capacity necessary.
The other two brothers frequently had to play along with whatever Darion would be experiencing at the time, and grew accustomed to it, almost not even noticing the oddities in it anymore.
When Darion was 13, their mother committed suicide. Darion was told that it was simply an accident, but the other two brothers knew the truth of the matter, as did their father. She could no longer handle Darion’s “vivid imagination” and the difficulties that would rise later in life from having a schizophrenic child, compounded with the financial struggles that the family frequently found themselves in.
When Darion was 16 and Avery was 14, Rylan moved away from Seattle, separating the brothers for the first time in their lives. Rylan found himself in trouble with the law frequently after he dropped out of high school, causing him to be thrown out by their father. He moved to Texas, near the border where he lived in some shitty trailer. The other two brothers visited him when they could.
Two years later, the Rylans father contacted him for the first time in almost four years letting him know that Darion’s condition was worsening and that the doctor recommended some sort of “temporary break off from society and normal life.
Rylan seemingly always getting into trouble had the good idea that they should go backpacking Russia. The three brothers boarded a flight not knowing this was were they fucked up, two months into the excursion the brothers were having an altercation near the Chenarus border for about an hour. Not even noticing then large military presence surrounding them. When they decided to make themselves known.... they made it known.
They introduced themselves as Vozdushno-Desantnye Voyska Rossii, some Russian paratroopers who jumped across the border to keep some quarantine that Darion didn't care or know about. After what seemed like a never ending interrogation they thought it was best if Darion crossed the border and never returned. He happily agreed knowing his brothers would follow, they crossed the border starting their new life in a unknown place.
