Eli Vaneslow was born into a rather luxurious life, his father having owned many successful businesses around the world which allowed his family to draw in large sums of money and live very comfortably. By no means was he "born with a silver spoon in his mouth" as they say, but he lived a very enjoyable young life. As life went on his father had begun to train him for the role he'd soon take on, this is to say the manager of the many businesses and companies his father had come to own. The worst stroke of bad luck had plagued Eli when he and his father took a flight to Chernarus, a country at war for a business deal with a few new companies and investors that could only further their wealth and brighten their lives further. The first few days were not so bad, but after a while they had heard reports of and even witnessed an outbreak of strange, rabid-like people. Needless to say, Eli had fled once most of those in the city, including his father had turned and eventually found safety in a large community of other survivors in a large factory area somewhere to the northwest of South Zagoria. The people were generous and kind to him, but asked one thing of him which was to take out supplies and bullets to other people who may be surviving out in the country.
