Background

Spoiler

Born on 29th October 1991 in Gießen Thomas lived with his parents Dieter and Lea in a small apartment in Wetzlar. His mother had no job since she got Thomas but was on the search for one. His father Dieter was a road construction worker and well enough paid to pay the taxes, the rent and life essential thing like food and so on. It got even harder for the family after Lea got her second child Max. Max was 3 years younger than Thomas and born at the 24th of October 1994 also in Gießen. Since life got hard, because of the slight money problem they faced, Lea the mother took more effort in finding a new job and she did in a local company called Leica in the management. Thanks to that and the income of their father they had enough money to finally move into a big house.

Thomas grows up as a little Angel behaving as he should and same goes for his brother until in primary school where Thomas got to know his later on best friend Nico and Jan. In school, Thomas performed always between OK and very good throughout the years. When he was a teenager he was most of the times out with his friends Nico and Jan making campfires in the woods spraying graffiti on walls and when the hit the age of 16 well-buying beer in the local store and getting drunk. When Thomas graduated from with rather good grades he was called in for either “Wehrpflicht” or “Zivildienst”. He didn’t really want to join the Bundeswehr but his father more or less pushed him to. So Thomas served his time in the Bundeswehr for 60 months and finished in September 2014 as “Feldwebel Krüger”. He then got a job in the company of his uncle Dirk who was helping the company from Germany finding good investments and trade deals in foreign countries. So Thomas started his 1 trainee years and finished in 2015 working in a foreign country for his uncle's company with a small 5 man group in an office building in Dubky, South Zagoria, Chernarus. Thomas used to be in Chernarus for around a half a year sometimes more before flying back to Germany for the rest of the year working in the headquarters of the company just to then fly back to CR again. Most of his time he drove around South Zagoria to the local companies trying to get either a Trading deal working or an investment of bigger German companies. Companies Thomas was usually working with were Zeiss, Leica and Siemens.

Spoiler

During his free time in Chernarus Thomas liked to follow the local Football matches, going to the pub with his colleagues or just fishing. When he was back in Germany he liked to meet his old friends Nico and Jan but also spending time with his family. He was, for example, going out hunting with his brother since both had the License. Thomas made is in his trainee years. But most of the time he was just busy with work. Then in 2016 and early 2017, the hardest time for Thomas and Max came. Dieter the father had heart problems for years but this time he wasn’t making it. He died in April 2016 cause of and heart attack. Then in December 2016 Lea, the mother died in a car accident leaving Max and Thomas by them self. Thomas was during those events in Chernarus and he didn’t take that lightly. Thomas ended up in depression and alcoholism staying in his apartment in Chernogorsk most of the time. It got worse in February 2017 when his little brother told Thomas that he has Leukemia and was in the hospital since dad died and that hit Thomas even more. He noticed that was missing a lot of shit when he was not at home and in May 2017 his brother took the easy way out. After all this. Dirk the uncle noticed Thomas absent from work and saw what he was going thru so he told Thomas to see a therapist. Now Thomas was taking antidepressants and visiting a psychologist 2 times a week and returning to work in April 2017. He returned to is place in work being like nothing happened and rather happy for what happened to him in such a short time, almost like he would try to hide his true pain behind a wall from the others.

In the first two weeks of the outbreak, Thomas was caught up in the chaos. During this time he got into a car crash in Chernogorsk. With the help of some people that witnessed the car accident, he managed to get out of his car. He tried to reach the Hospital in Chernogorsk and Chapaevsk but both were quite “overrun” by people who suffered also from injuries thanks to the chaos. His next plan was heading back to his apartment. Getting there feeling terrible because of the car accident he stayed there kind of dug in until the military forces withdraw from the City. Thomas wasn’t stupid knowing that if military withdraws shit is bound to happen so he packed whatever he could grab into a backpack moving his ass out of Chernogorsk toward East. As he arrived in Elektrozavodsk he was shocked that it didn’t look better over there either. People were, like in Chernogorsk, starting to ransacking stores or locking themselves up in their houses or apartments. After the most evac places got overwhelmed he decided to walk back to his apartment in the middle of the night. The Idea ended up with him being lost in the woods between Elektrozavodsk and Chernogorsk until he found a small house on a hillside near Prigorodki. He knocked on the doors and looked through the windows but it seemed abandoned. When we walked around the house to get into the backyard he jumped a few meters back in total shock. Thomas pulled out his flashlight and pointed at the man-sized silhouette on the ground. Now he could see an older man lying in the grass with a shotgun in one hand and a blown of the head. The first thing that happened after Thomas realized what he just saw he well vomited. White like a ghost and with legs like pudding he pulled out a respirator putting it on and slowly moving closer trying not to vomit again. Disgusted by the whole situation he checked for anything keys an ID card anything that could help him knowing who that poor fucker was or to get into the house. He ended up finding the keys and Thomas didn’t hesitate he went into the house and locked himself I checking the house from basement to top floor. Thomas didn’t find a single person but enough supplies to stay OK for a few days. Next morning he didn’t really wake up since was not even able to sleep with all this shit that happened so recently. When he looked outside he spotted that dead man again and instead of just looking away Thomas got his shit together and buried that man a few meters of the house in the woods. It was not easy for Thomas since he was A he was multiple times about to vomit again and B he started noticing that shit was looking really bad ……

Spoiler

A few days later Thomas finally left the house again since he was more or less forced to. He had to go to the only town he new in and out Chernogorsk. Thomas mission: “get supplies and then fuck off” but as Murphy's Law states “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong”. So the first bump was a random guy he saw running not far from a house he stood on but the way that person was looking, what he was wearing and the fact that he talked to himself in a weird way made Thomas clear that not all people out here are sane. So he took a look through Chernogorsk or more Dubky. Then out of the blue, a lot of shots and Thomas more or less panicked and run north-ish into the woods. On his way north, he passed Mogilevka and on the road from Vyshnoye to Stary Sobor he meets the first person he couldn’t “avoid” since he walked right into her. It was a little French/Chernarussian girl called Elaine and she was on the search for her mother since he more or less lost her. So Thomas, with no straight destination, decided to tag along. So both followed the road towards Stary Sobor and near the Big Red Barn, they meet more “friendly” people. A woman called Rory and her friends. What throw Elaine and Thomas a bit off was that she was very nervous in her voice but giving the circumstances it was normal you could say. The friendly chat was then broken up by shots from the town and even explosions. Rory and her people wanted to run to the next town east the VDV but Thomas was just not capable of that since he still had some sprained ribs. So they couldn’t move until the people that made that noise appeared the VDV. For Thomas, it was the first encounter with any Government officials of a country since he left the house. Elaine kept hiding behind Thomas while the VDV did their thing  with asking for IDs . In the end, Elaine and Thomas got out of that whole thing and moved more North East until they hit the NEAF in the hope to find NATO, CDF, UN or anyone but the only thing they found was an empty terminal. So they decided to stay there over the night and in the next morning Elaine was gone and Thomas well he was back on his own again. Until he bumped into a guy on his way out of Krasnostav. The man's name was Michael O'Brien. Michael was in Thomas' eyes a typical Irish and well and somewhat a friend after the walk they had from Krasnostav to Chernogorsk. As they checked Chernogorsk they meet two other survivors Lily and Daniel. They all had a nice chat and set up in a house with a nice fire until Michael left and didn’t return for quite a bit. Thomas, Lilly and Daniel then decided to go and look for him but that got problematic straight up because they triggered one of the Infected. But before it could even reach them it got taken out by a UN Soldier with a bunch more of them seem like they just came out of nowhere.

It’s been almost 3 months now since my last visit in South Zagoria after I tried to find some other place to survive at but for some reason, I just felt like I had to return. All the memories that I have here are just something I can leave behind and besides that, it’s the place I call home. I mean not only that some of my friends are maybe still there if they are still alive that is. For fuck sake, I just hope Nedved is still kicking I mean that guy is like a brother to me. All the shit we survived together and all the times we always could count on each other.

Spoiler

Also, there is still Sofie the woman I love, that keeps appearing and then without a word said. That is not only strange considering we are in a relationship no because it drives me insane thinking of what could happen to her out here. All I hope is that Sofie is OK and that she is not dead. Considering the time it has been since we last meet. I don't even know where we stand in our relationship at the moment, but until I can talk to here again one day hopefully, all I am left with are my memories of the time have spent with her.

 

8.png.022241a07ac4b4e3f296f088ff240867.png

Spoiler

But not only Nedved and Sofie are the ones I miss. There is Reed, the Doc, Letter, Holmen, Liam and Baz. Shit, I hope the old crew is still around and well. All the funny moments we had to make these dark times a bit brighter, shining like the last Light in a dark room. Like when we moved around in "Dutches" or Dr.Hawk who always tried to keep us all together and well. Also, the times when we had to fight for our freedom and peace against our enemies, left some scars on me.

But now thinking about all the stuff I just have written down, its kind of sad since that's all I have left at the moment. I have been travelling for the last weeks to get back and now I am so close, but also afraid that I am the last one of the old crew that everyone is dead and that I never can joke around with Nedved again or sit next to the fire with the woman I love. These are the Nightmares that haunt me since weeks now and they won't disappear until I bring back light into the dark thoughts that I have.

Spoiler

It's been a long time again since I have written something down and I think it is time again. My last visits back to South Zagoria where cut short usually since I was still trying to find out what happened to Sofie. Sadly I will have to admit that I will never be able to find it out by now. It has been nearly half a year since I last saw here and well I think it really was the LAST time I saw her. Since then I have worked for people up near the border in the Black Mountain area and did help settlements around Miroslavl for payment. I really have changed a lot and I think pieces of the old happy and cheerful Kruger are slowly dying from the inside. All that's left is my facade of a friendly and happy guy who is always up for some banter. Maybe it’s because of the things I did for or against people for the right price when I was not in South Zagoria. Maybe because I was so long separated from my “family” like Nedved, Hawk, Dr Faith, Holmen, Dr Beth or Letter. Well now I am back in South Zagoria and those feelings are not gone. No, they are still there and they are growing stronger every day. I am afraid that they will take over one day and I will just become a numb and empty shell that just has forgotten that there was a world before all of this. When I meet random people like Emily or Amy it was easy to just play an act as a calm and cool-headed survivor but when Nedved came along it got hard to find good answers of what I was up during the time I was not in South Zagoria. Since he knows me good enough to sometimes tell when I am lying and him being a Cop didn’t help. It got even harder though in the recent days since I have to meet Beth again and Nedved at the same time. It's like I want to cry for help so that I do not drown one day in this dark and sinister nightmares and ideas I have sometimes. But something is always preventing me from it like I have become a mute that doesn't know how to express himself. So I feel like, if I won't be able to find a way to get help soon I will be chained to a chair in my mind watching myself doing things I don't want to do…… stuck waking up in the night because of the nightmares or drowning my bad feelings in cheap Chernarussian Vodka.

I truly love this character page. I actually have it bookmarked and I've come here for inspiration more than once. The music you have playing somehow perfectly fits the theme of a man who was once happy, but has now lost everything. Looking at the middle picture of Thomas smiling feels so authentic and reminds me of a polaroid picture that someone might have taken of him before the world went to hell. Now, he's undoubtedly a changed man. You conveyed all of those things and feelings to me with a song and a picture, and then backed it up with an engaging and realistic background. Thanks for this, I legitimately appreciate you posting this.
