Kane Parker was born and raised out in the suburbs of Sydney Australia. He had a normal family, a mother, father and an older brother who was married with a child of his own who Kane absolutely adored spending time with. He was fortunate enough to have been blessed with a somewhat normal life surrounded by friends and family who he knew he could count on however he always felt something was missing from his life, a sense of adventure which he could never seem to find.
Kane had always wanted to see the world, to have a better understanding of the vast amount of cultures which he believed was something you could only achieve by living amongst them.
When he had expressed these feelings to a friend they suggested he look at military service however Kane did not believe he was suited for that kind of lifestyle and so another suggestion was put towards them. Working for the Government in the ‘Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’ this would grant him the opportunity to work overseas and to see the world just like he had wanted to.
Lady luck seemed to have favoured him as he later found himself working at the Australian Embassy in Moscow.
Kane sat at his desk looking out the window, tapping his pen against his keyboard as he pondered about when he would be going back home to see his family and friends. He had only been at the Moscow embassy for a few months but was getting pretty homesick; he was wondering about speaking with his boss to see if it was possible to get transferred early when his thoughts suddenly got interrupted as he received a notification in his inbox.
He looked at the email title reading ‘Emergency Passport Replacement’ He scrolled down to read the following:
I am informing you that earlier today we received a call from the local authorities in South Zagoria Chernarus. A man by the name of Stradic Jones has been admitted to hospital after being robbed by unknown assailants. We have been able to verify the story and can confirm that the man is indeed an Australian citizen however local authorities are demanding the presence of a consular in order to assist in helping Mr Jones to obtain an emergency passport so we can return him home.
We have already booked a country train ticket and accommodation to Chernogorsk located not too far from the hospital in which Mr Jones is currently residing at.
The train you will be taking will depart tomorrow from Leningradsky Railway Station at 10am. A case file is currently being worked on and will be sent to you by the end of today.
Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions or concerns.
He ran his hand through his hair and let out a slight sigh of frustration; he had been planning on requesting to go home early but instead was going to be thrown into the lion’s den. Relations between the two neighbouring countries had seemed to grow sour in recent months with political tension and outcries of extreme individuals, many believed that another civil war was just on the horizon.
Kane woke up as his head smashed against the window, it certainly wasn’t the most pleasant way of waking up but he thought it was better than spending the whole trip asleep. He looked out of the window of the train admiring the vast countryside but again it made him homesick as it reminded him of the rural countryside towns back home.
The train continued to rattle about as it continued making pace to its destination of Chernogorsk. Kane decided that to pass the time he would look over the case file to take his mind off of things; he pulled out his laptop and opened up the case file no. folder 117 – Stradic Jones.

On the 18th of July 2017, Mr Jones was admitted to hospital after being found unconscious outside a local pub. The local police report states that Mr Jones was having a few drinks with an unknown assailant and became heavily intoxicated, he was escorted out of the premises when he was set upon by a group of men all believed to be aged in the their mid to late 20’s.
When bystanders rushed to provide aid the attackers had fled on foot with Mr Jones suffering from a slight concussion and bruising on the ribs. Mr Jones reported that both his wallet and passport had been stolen along with his black coat jacket.
When questioned Mr Jones was unable to provide a clear description of his attackers, claiming that whoever set upon him came from behind and jumped him. Bystanders could not give any clear descriptions with police now checking any of the local stores to see if they have any CCTV footage to help identify the attackers.
The medical assessment given states that Mr Jones is fit for flight however will need to avoid any heavy lifting until the swelling in his ribs go down and has been advised to seek a check-up within the next fortnight.
