Magnus was the lead guitarist of danish heavy-metal band set to tour eastern Europe.
After having played a few gigs in Russia, the band quickly passed through North Zagoria and ended in the south. In South Zagoria the band continued the tour, playing at local music festivals and whichever venues that would have them.
Magnus and the rest of his band got caught in Chernarus as the infection started. The band manager sought the aid of the locals to attempt to flee the country, but were ultimately unsuccessful. They were stuck here and had to wait for outside rescue.
