Kevin Teran was born and raised in Boston, MA. At the age of 18 he met who would be his future wife Sarah Jacobs. They were together and happy for two years when he popped the question and they got married in the year 2010. A year later Kevin against the wishes of his new spouse went to join the US Marine Corp to fight in the Afghanistan War. While he was in Afghanistan he kept regular contact with Sarah all the way up until his last year of service he hadn't heard from her at all so he assumed she got tired of waiting and moved on instead what he found when he got home was much worse. When he finally returned to his house he saw his mother sitting on the porch with a sad look on her face. His mother informed him that in April of 2015 his wife got into a car wreck with a semi truck and didn't make it. Kevin spent the rest of that year on autopilot and drifted through life. His depression was enough to cause him to be unable to hold a job which caused him to lose his house, his car, and everything else he owned. Because Kevin was raised independent and was really hard headed he refused to ask his mother or other family for help and remained homeless saving money here and there until he got enough to escape from his hell. By the time 2016 came around he found a guy who was willing to fly Kevin to a place called Chernarus so he could be far from his old life. So Kevin gave him all of his savings and grabbed his old ratty bag which held his dads old Colt 1911 pistol and climbed aboard the plane. Once in Chernarus Kevin not having much work experience went to work for the Chernarussian Defense Force (CDF) as a Technician. After a few months he was able to get settled into Chernarus and was feeling decent again until he checked the mail when he got back to the barracks. It was a letter from his sister saying that his mother had died from a stroke and that she left her house to him. He spent the next few months fighting with himself on whether he should go home or stay here and avoid his old life and his past demons. He eventually decided to stay and never wrote his sister back hoping she would think him dead and forget him. He continued going around to all the military bases in Chernarus to preform maintenance on the equipment and vehicles until one day he woke up to alarms. His commanding officer was going through the barracks making sure everyone himself included went to the armory to get geared up for a fight. Usually Kevin would think this was a drill but he saw the look in his commanders eyes and knew it was real. As he stepped from the barracks he heard the bombs dropping on the old storage base near Severograd. Kevin got assigned to a patrol that was to watch a road checkpoint near Severograd where the attacks were happening. During one of his shifts he saw a civilian get attacked by a rabid man and opened fire on the rabid man who turned and ran at Kevin. No matter how many rounds he dumped into the man it kept coming until he hit a head-shot. As what was being called by the soldiers as the infection spread and worsened most fled or died in Severograd and Kevin's squad was moved to Berezino. There the infection was much worse. Kevin decided that since everyone was leaving he was going to stay and accept his fate. In the middle of the night he dropped his rifle his gear and his uniform and ran into the woods and made camp far off close to Gorka. From there he was able to scavenge enough food from the town to survive the coming week. During the second week of camping he heard the far off sound of a boat's horn and began making his way to the coastline.
Now Kevin's story continues through the next events of the game.
