Dave Jackson is a born and bred mancunian. He never really achieved anything through his school years, and joined the RAF when he was 17.
He trained for two years and became an RAF Auxiliary. He was never positioned outside of the UK, and was tasked with guarding RAF Woodvale and later on, RAF Menwith Hill. As he aged, he began to grow bored of his current job. After numerous news reports and the death of one of his close friends, he left the RAF and joined a PMC company called Aegis Defence Services. He worked throughout Syria aiding the Syrian army and fighting small insurgent groups wherever they popped up.
Early in 2017, Dave and a few others were following a convoy up through Georgia and towards Sochi. They noticed the convoy was stopped up ahead by Russian military, and were informed of the situation in Chernarus. Curious, and hoping for a decent payday, David and a few others decided to investigate on their own accord.
After a few difficult days of chaos, things became desperate. The group of mercs got seperated in Chernogorsk, and were left to fend for themselves. Becoming desperate, Dave resorting to taking whatever he needed from others in order to survive.
