Matt Grew up in various towns and villages all over England moving from family to family due to him being in care. This caused him to see the country and experience multiple lifestyles. After finishing school he took up multiple jobs to move away from the UK and start fresh in a place where he wasn't tied down. After making enough money at the age of 19 he moved to America to pursue a career as a police officer. Moving to Orange County he started off as a janitor working in the station until the police academy would accept him. Once he started the police academy he would quickly make a name for himself in the police force and catch multiple nicknames through the years. Not shortly after making a name for himself he would meet a lady called Emelia who he had his first and only child, Cayde Quickly became his top priority making him risk less and less in the line of duty.
In the coming years after the Police academy he would chase down multiple big name criminals running contraband ranging from Drugs to guns. Due to this The Chief of Police Would promote him to Sheriff Deputy of Orange county this was the turning point for matt as this was his dream since he moved to america. Not long after becoming The Sheriff's Deputy he would get caught in a large gun fight with a local gang over Drugs and money. A sting operation had been put in place to catch the gang off guard and catch them all red handed however with good news comes bad news and as Matt was making his approach to the van with the Drugs in it, he would get hit in his lower abdomen causing him to be knocked to the ground and unconscious. Months went by in a matter of moments, multiple surgeries later and he was awake. In a hospital with his son and wife. After 3 more months of recovery he returned back to full time duty not now wearing a Cross around his neck which was given to him by his son.
In the weeks after matt being comatosed the gang had become a ghost and they just disappeared in the wind not to be seen again until 5 months after Matt returned to duty where he was given a anonymous type that the gang is back and about to make there biggest trade ever so with the help of the DEA him and the officers went to ambush the meet. He arrived late on scene so the arrest had already taken place however the boss of the gang wasn't there and Matt started to panic as the gang knew he was the one who set this ambush up.
Only moments later He gets a Phone call from his wife telling him his son has been taken. Now on the run the gang leader left clues and evidence everywhere.
In an attempt to find his son Matt put his work on hold he packed his bag and started a global chase to find his son. His first stop was back to England which was where he got stuck for almost a year due to the outbreak and restrictions that were placed on the country due to the virus, AVM-FLA-19. This caused his travels to slow down but once restrictions lifted he took his chance to get into Europe which would then be a lot easier to travel to each county due to land access. Once he arrived in France he checked the last known location of the gang leader and found a possible location he's heading to next. Nyheim, matt making his way quickly over to Nyheim not checking news stations, wasn't aware of the issues facing Nyheim and the citizens there; however once he arrived he got a hotel and waited for any possible leads. Almost a year passed with no new leads. He knew his son was in Nyheim somewhere but before he could move to his next location he was forced to stay in his room due to social media not working on his phone and then a mist being sprayed in the towns. Luckily enough he wasn't touched by this mist. And now locked in his room awaiting further instructions from the government.
Few weeks later everything changed, it was as if hell was unleashed on cities. No new leads and the country in shambles. He had to make his way out to find his son. That was his only goal.
