Mayson has been sent in with a squad of soldiers in an attempt to collect samples and assist the rest of the population to fight in escaping to one of the U.S Camps hidden within Black Mountain Ranges. Throughout the mission as Mayson's team was collecting samples the locals began to open fire on upon them and shot down his second in command Patrick, the stench of bloodshed and the sound of guns going off attracted infected to their location and eventually lead to the downfall of his squad. Abandoned and Afraid Mayson retreats to a nearby church in Elektrozavodsk. Calling unto god he asks what he had done to deserve such a fate of pain and agony, what humanity had done to plague itself. At that moment it was as if his prayer answered all he had asked, Humanity had plagued itself brought itself down a path of pain and suffering and the only cure was James himself. He proclaimed "Humanity has brought agony to itself, Everyone is a sinner, Everyone must be saved." The only way in which humanity could be saved was by the hand of James and only James himself can rid the world of this plague this disease brought by the sins of humanity. Humanity needs guidance and James is its savior.
