Everett was a normal kid from Norway, an adept fisherman and treated survival as a hobby, learning basic survival and hunting. He was born to a Delinquent father who led a life of crime and rarly was around and his mother who died of cancer when he was 11. He was then taken in by his granddad who was a Explosives expert and sapper in WW2 sabotaging U-BOATS and German supply's. He taught Everett electrical engineering and basic repairs of automobiles, as well as fishing. He was on a trip with his grandpa fishing and selling said fish when it was hijacked by Chernarusian rebels, his granddad executed in front of him after the rebels extracted the needed information about the production of cheap bombs, and after weeks of torture via Electrocution and physical abuse he was sent to a camp to become a child soldier, which he did very well. He rose through the ranks as his apathy to nearly anything inhibited him to kill without remorse. After the Chernarusian government put a stop to the terrorist group, Everett left and took odd jobs around Chernarus, noteworthy feats were fixing the array at green mountain and repairing the conduits between electric power plants in Electro, but never staying in one place for too long. He found himself in the forests of Sinistok camping when he first encountered the virus.
