Corey lived in England his whole life. His mother was a Brit, and his father, a Chernarussian. When Corey finished High School with absolutely nothing to show for it, his mother immediately contacted his father in Chernarus, who told him that he would bring him to Chernarus to learn to live like a "real man." And so, in November of 2016, he moved to Berezino with his father, where they chopped lumber for a living, and sold it to local sawmills. They lived with a paltry salary, so Corey took to stealing from local stores to stop himself from succumbing to hunger. A month before the outbreak, Corey ran away from his father to go North, with only his fathers stolen pistol and a pocket knife. For about a month after running away, he stole loaves of bread from shops and killed small animals such as chickens and rabbits to eat.
When the breakout happened, he watched everything happen from afar, terrified to see what had become of his father.
He made friends with many people along his journey, and learned of what happened to his father, he now wanders the land, a shadow of his former self, trying his best to help out and find some form of purpose in this broken country.
