Who moved to Gilman to give the city something to worship in the early 80's upon which none had before the religion of the true Lord. From the day Alfred the 3rd was born in 1988, he was christened a Messenger and the vessel to the lord as his older brother had decided to leave the family and go to law school thus forfeiting his vessel-hood. Throughout his formative years, he attended Sunday school and sermons both taught by his father convincing him to follow his father's beliefs and believing himself to be a Messenger of the lord if not the vessel. When Alfred turned 25, he was forced to leave Gilman when his father was found dead brutally and horrifyingly butchered; he was accused that he had been behind it with a band of radicals as he had begun to teach his brand of the religion.
After a few months with the help of his followers, he moved to a small town in Canada as the police couldn't find any evidence to stake him to the murder. Alfred, Pastor Alfred as his followers preferred to call him began spreading his beliefs throughout the town, and nearby cities many outside religious leaders saw the new fast forming religion as a group of Heretics and fanatics but were harmless speaking out against him. Though branded he started pulling more and more followers till devote members of a local militant Christians Group decided to attack the building Alfred had been holding his sermons in leading to the makeshift church burning down. The loss weighed heavily on Alfred didn't lose his faith and decided to move his congregation away and after a close friend of his named Genavive talked him into it and over the next couple years Alfred moved himself and as many followers as he could and moved to Europe.
he gained follower after follower across the continent so when the infected started appearing he capitalized on the infection using the apocalypse to his benefit rallying more and more to the lord till he approached Russia with his band of 100 men women and children and of course his devote follower Genevieve. The excursion ended in tragedy fewer than 15 made it out the worse loss was Genevieve. She saved Alfred at the cost of her life. after she died Alfred started to have lapses of memory such as how many survivors were left and how many supplies the group had in those times he turned to his father's word. The few survivors made it into a nearby country named Chernarus the few survivors were disheartened and left Alfred alone to rebuilt his flock and save the remaining humans all he needed was his faith and his congregation. But he had no idea where to start or how to convert the survivors of this onslaught. To the religion of the lord, their master, their ruler, the one true lord of this land. but the lord has seen him through harder situations and will see him through this all he has to do is keep his faith and the path will be shown to him.
