Eddie 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. Eddie was flying into the town of Miroslavl' for a man to make a business deal. As he neared the city a catastrophic engine failure lead to his plane crash landing in a river far to the northeast of the city. He had laid there unconscious and when he awoke only he remained, injured. He began limping through the woods to eventually find himself some help in the south zegoria region. He would soon find this to be his new home however. The quarantine had just been put into effect. He was trapped.
