Cornelio Santini is a catholic priest, trapped in Chernarus after the zombie pandemy.
He borned in Ravenna Italy, and grow up in a religous family which influenced him on choosing the his now career.
At 18 he graduated on literature and than started the church career, he studied at the Antonianum Papa University and get a degree on Christian Archeology at the age of 26.
From that moment he traveled all across the ancient christian world, working with teams of archeologist in Siria, Egypt, Ethiopia and Tunis and so.
One day as he was working on the excavation of an ancient church in the Jordan desert a sand storm hit the site and he lost himself in the middle of the desert, in the long way to reach back the civilization, that experience changed him forever.
He became more closed to the monastic life, he refused to come back to the middleast and started to study more and more theology, he became a conservative and faithfull more than ever.
One day he was offered to be part of the entourage of a cardinal in this of the Patriarchy of the Chernarus located in Chernogorsk. And in the very day during the meeting with the local patriarch the infection became pandemy in the major cities. Unfortunatly of the entire entourage only him survived, even the cardinal he was escorting died shortly after the apocalypse.
Cornelio is faithfull, traditionalist, inquisitive and charismatic, he survived throug guns and faith, helping the others, killing the heretics and the zombies which he calls "deamons of the end times".
He finally found a place to live, the abandoned church of Severograd, cultivating the land of the nearby plains, making masses on sunday morning and travelling on the wastelands of Chernarus on the other days of the week, helping the survivors, inquiring them and if they are good christians he usually make a little pray and invitation to the sunday mass... but if they are sinners God helps them because no other can interfere in his judgement.
