Edward Forrester was a private pilot who, in his spare time was an outdoorsman. He hunted, fished, went on hikes, and camped very frequently when he wasn't working. Edward was flying into the town of Miroslavl' for a man to make a business deal. As he neared the city an electrical malfunction in one of the wings lead to his plane crash landing in a river far to the north of the city in a river. All off his passengers had died and only he remained, injured. He crawled to the first aid kit which had miraculously landed nearby and patched himself up the best he could and began limping through the woods to eventually find himself in the south zagoria region where he was stranded.
