Born in Leeds, England, Oliver became the kind of kid to always take the middle road. He was what most people describe as a gifted child. Despite this, showing signs of intelligence was often frowned upon by other kids. When he joined high school he became the kind of person to always try and fit in with the crowd. He became an under-achiever if anything.
When he moved up onto college, things did change a little. Realising he was starting to screw his life up (shown through sub-par high school qualifications), he eventually clicked on and began to hammer down. Nothing was really there to hold him back. Eventually, he got with his first girlfriend in college. The two of them became inseparable very quickly. Every moment of spare time seemed to disappear when he was with her. It was like being in paradise at the time. The two of them often spent time together out in fields, relaxing and cuddling under a warm sun and enjoying what life had to offer. She became his life for a long time.
Then we come to today. Oliver's family decided to go on a holiday to Georgia at the end of his college days. It was just a regular holiday at first. He would spend time around the time with his family. It wasn't until a couple days in that Oliver's life began to change. Oliver was relaxing by the pool in his hotel when he received a message from his girlfriend. In the time they hadn't spend together it turned out her head had turned towards his best friend. He never found out the full story. The message was a video of his friend fucking her, a horrible way to end a relationship. Oliver felt betrayed.
But things didn't just stop there... the infection had spread like a wildfire and before Oli knew it he was trapped in a foreign land with no way of getting home. On the first night of it being declared a national emergency, he and his family hid. They were trapped in the hotel, unable to escape in the dead of the night.
With the city seeming to be engulfed by chaos, he and his family attempted to flee north having no idea of the perils that awaited. They had very little food, no change of clothing and no idea where they were going. Eventually they reached what seemed to be a military establishment. Spotting it off in the distance, his family seemed to breathe a sigh of relief. It was a brief relief, as before they knew it the infection had been following them everywhere they went. The contagion just seemed to be everywhere you go. He and his family had 2 choices, run towards this military zone or flee for their lives. They ducked for cover, before realising that they were slowly being surrounded. Looks of terror crossed their faces as suddenly Oli's dad heard that ghastly, inhuman breathing behind him. Oli's dad's heart raced with adrenaline and as he screamed his father began to run towards the establishment. In the panic, his movements became irregular. A small group of infected chased him, following him as fast as they could with that hunger still burning in their eyes. Oli was left watching, as the unbearable happened. When they thought the coast was clear, they tried to follow him hoping he would be alright.
And then the unthinkable happened. Cracks of gunfire from the russian border patrol could be heard everywhere. His father was gunned down mercilessly by the patrol, along with every infected soul that followed. Oli stopped, tears streaming into his eyes as his jaw dropped, following his father down to the ground. As he stood their, gazing at his father his mother seemed to scream and trip. Oli got up and ran back over, stomping on the remains of an infected that had grabbed her. A small group of russian soldiers had approached them, though it was all for the worse. The soldiers suddenly realised that she was bleeding heavily from the leg from what appeared to be a large bite mark. They gunned her down quickly, fearing the possibility of her being infected. Oli lost everything he loved and had that day.
The rest of the tale continue on into Chernarus... a land he became lost in. A soul lost to hell.
