Taliesin Carboy, born and raised in a small ranch not that far from Lubbock Texas, His early childhood life wasn't exactly the greatest, there were good points to his life of course. though with apparently all the men of the Carboy family having some sort of connection to the drink. all Taliesin could do on "good" days (as he liked to call it) was lock his mother and himself in her closet while their father prances around looking for either of them to beat. His Education was decent at much. though due to many factors of Taliesin's life, he was not able to pursue a further education after high school, instead after graduating his high school life. it was 2008, the war on terror was still alive and going on. with nothing else to do, and having little to no interest in helping running his parents ranch, Taliesin joins the U.S Marine corps and serves his country over seas, by august of 2009, Taliesin finds himself on the USS Khe Sahn, apart of the 27th Marine Expeditionary Unit (27th MEU) on their way to a small eastern European country called Chernarus, to aid NATO troops in their involvement of the conflict, by September with the Russians threatening NATO forces to pull out. to much of Taliesin's dismay, and disappointment the U.S Marine unit along with many other NATO Troops were forced to pull out of the conflict zone and sent many troops back home. Taliesin included, Taliesin coming home from life in the Marines back to a more, calm and peaceful civilian life was a tough one, even to this day he suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, a mental disorder which is usually seen in a person after traumatic events, Taliesin won't explain what exactly happened during his service over seas that has caused him such suffering in his mind, claiming he can keep "the demons" inside. in December of 2019 a few days before the outbreak in January, Taliesin took a plane to Chernarus to pay his respects for a country he never had a chance to help defend it's freedoms against what he deemed a enemy. whether or not the government he was fighting along side was a corrupt one or not. he was just "following orders." and keeping the free world free, on the day of the outbreak he was greeted to a police officer ordering him to leave his hotel room and come to a local hospital to be tested for a virus, To Taliesin agreed and followed the man to the hospital, from there he was tested, and his results were negative for being infected, though placed in quarantine as he was told it was "just in case." once his quarantine was finished, he made his way to the airport in the capital city to try and leave for america, not sure if the infection will get any worse. sadly fate had something worse for him once he asked if they were taking people out on flights, he was told no. and was redirected to go to one of the many relocation camps, to which he did. only to find himself in worse conditions than he was in isolated quarantine, with his Phone being dead, and the camp not having a pay phone or anything of that sort, he wasn't able to contact his family and see how they were doing. he only hoped that this infection was only here, and not else where. by May Taliesin has grown tired of staying in the relocation camp that he was staying in, seeing people starving, and suffering as bad as he was. he had enough of it and walked out the front gate, seeing how there were practically no soldiers guarding the camp no more due to the strain of having to manage so many people in small condense areas, now he roams the wastes of a country he has history in. trying to survive with whatever he can find, while having to come to terms with "the demons." in his mind, he wanders. lost, trying to find equilibrium in a world of monsters and sorrow.
