Barry has lived a failed life ever since he wandered away from his post in Germany during the cold war in the 70's. He has cheated, stolen, and begged his way east over the years. There isn't too much he hasn't seen in his years so when a terrible virus ravages the world he takes it as the best business opportunity yet. He must spread his Hobo code across the land he has lived by and continue his life as a vagabond across South Zagoria. Now he has wandered squandering his rags and becomes an old man who is full of wisdom and knows how to survive. He has found other fellow road dwellers and they all adopt the code to follow with "prophet".
