Carter Winters is a stock broker and model who was a party goer on the Riptide when it was beached off the coast of Chernarus. He is a romantic at heart, being called The Gentleman for his exceptional good looks and suave demeanor in professional settings. However his rowdy and hyper active tendencies are shown while under the influence or while partying.
He was born on September 2, 1992 to a wealthy family in Anchorage, Alaska. His father was a high ranking executive in a major oil corporation and his mother was a pilot for Alaskan airlines. It was safe to say that he and his younger sister Emily barely saw much of their parents growing up and grew close to the nanny, Amanda who was like a second mom to them. When Carter was around 16 years old, his father came home from one of his several month long business trips and little to Carter's knowledge, got intimate with Amanda. However, Carter's father wasnt expecting his wife to arrive that same night and catch him cheating on her.
As Carter's mother went upstairs after greeting the kids, Carter heard yelling and commotion that only intensified. After a few seconds the yelling turned into screaming and it was quickly followed by 2 loud gunshots. A third trailed shortly afterwards. Carter told Emily to stay put as he slowly crept up the staircase to find his parents and Amanda shot dead, the smoking gun still in his mother's lifeless hand. Horrified and in complete shock, he ran out of the house into the snowy night and didn't look back. Carter just kept running and running until he remembered that he left 10 year old Emily back at the house. By now the snow had picked up and he couldn't see his footprints anymore our which direction he came from. He was lost in the woods. The police found Carter the next day, barely alive and freezing to death. Emily however, was never found and was presumed dead in the near future.
College and Beyond
Carter was sent to live with his aunt in East Virginia after the incident and inherited his parents fortune when he turned 18. He attended Syracuse University and majored in business, earning his Bachelor's Degree. After college he invested heavily in stocks, tripling his portfolio and making millions upon millions of dollars. He bought a penthouse suite in New York and started his own business as a stock broker, securing deals in retail and private clients alike. Carter had a side gig as a model for multiple magazines and cologne companies. One particular stock he invested in was a record company that recently signed an up-and-coming artist known as Joshua Tone who had a new hit single that people were eating up. Because of his major contributions, he was invited to to attend a private yacht party off the coast of Istanbul, Turkey for the success of Tone's new single. The ship was called "The Riptide" and the party aboard it was absolutely wild. Carter did all the drugs, drank all the alcohol, and had all the sex. Nearing the end of his night of debauchery, Carter was suddenly attacked by a snarling partygoer and thrown off the side of the ship. That last thing he hears is the panicked screams of the passengers before he drifts into the night for over 12 hours until making it to an unknown shore, passing out on the beach...
