Derek Bregner, a 22 year old biochemical scientist from Chino Valley Arizona started his career in 2002 right after he Graduated from high school at the age of 17 with high and mighty plans to attend community college to become a chemist. However he turned down that idea when his uncle proposed a job offer to him as a local apprentice at Celgene Bioengineering. After working there for a few years he managed to work up the ranks. However Without a college degree he could not get anywhere past the rank of a crewman. With no plans of wasting all the money he had made over the years he decided to settle as a crewman. Staying as a crewman for a few months he has started to gain a liking for his new job, it was simple. All he had to gather a simple colony of Algae from the Verde River for analysis. His life would forever change when the manager of his crew approached him and told him that they were being transferred over to a small eastern European country called Chernarus. Derek was later informed that eastern European division for Celgene discovered Algae in one of the rivers in the country that had very similar chemical components than the one they were studying in Arizona. Derek was given a full paid for work flight to get him to country as soon as possible. His crew was provided with a local translator that seemed a bit squeamish for his liking. Derek and his crew worked flawlessly for the next one and a half years making great discoveries which he continued to happily report to his advisors. However his work schedule was put to a grinding halt when the crew was informed by their translator that they could no longer leave the country due to an impending civil war. to much of his dismay he dropped his work and with his crew followed his translator to his family's home where they boarded it into a makeshift secluded safehouse. With the crew having no way to talk to family back home and the translator refusing anybody to leave. they had no choice but to stay there for the following year. Then on one fait full day the hand radio that the translator kept to himself crackled to life. it exerted quick and violent tones and prazings recognized as local but could not understand. however the translator knew what it meant. with his eyes wide he grabbed his wife and kids and told them with a hushed tone told them to pack everything they had and get into the car.As the translator pushed his family out the door. He screamed at his american friends to stay in the house. he told them he would be back in no more than three days time without any chance of retaliation, the translator left and drove away. It's been a week since then. The crew is restless. The food stores have been low for at least a month. With no chance of calling for help due to not knowing the language the crew decided to vote whether to stay or leave. With a unanimous vote to stay excluding derek. Angered by his crews lack of courage. Dereck grabbed whatever gear he could gather from the storages. and without any retaliation from his crew derek storms out of the house in the darkest of nights without anything but a old backpack, a open can of baked beans. and a busted flashlight.
