Chris has always been a straight A student but has a tendency to substance abuse since his teenage years (always keeps functioning though). As a kid he had to go hunting with his father though he always hated it. Still it gave him an appreciation for nature and although he didn't go hunting anymore when he was older he always enjoyed outdoor activities like camping, climbing and eating magic mushrooms in the woods.
Student of medicine in Goettingen/ Germany. Specialised in infectious deseases at Max- Plank Institute. His doctor father (Dr. Schubert) is one of the most influential scientists in the field of infectious deseases and vaccinology. Chris came to Chernarus with him and a delegation of "Doctors without borders" (medecins sans frontieres). What a bad idea.
