Maverick was a young adult living the time of his life in England. He had a decent job working with his father, still living at home with his parents without paying rent, things were going smoothly. He lived with his parents, Susan and Charles, and his younger brother, Dennis. His parents used to live in Miroslavl when Charles used to work with an Engineering company called Bilfinger Tebodin. They were a smallish company which were mainly based in Czech Republic but branched out into Chernarus. But due to Mav struggling to find a job in the foreign country, they moved back to England when he was 19.
The year he came back with his family, his Dad returned to his old job at Cummings, another engineering firm. Due to Mav's life still going quite slow, he enquired to his father about working with him. His father was pretty cozy with the main boss, and he managed to get him a job working as a technician on the shop floor. Things were really looking up for him.
One day, Mav took his younger brother Dennis to Pets at Home, a pet store in his area. They enquired about buying a puppy for a while, but they decided to go through with is. Mav saved up enough money to make the purchase. Pumba was welcomed into the family. He was a small spaniel with long hair and hyperactive attitude. He grew really attached to Dennis. Things were going great until one sad week.
It was mid December and snow was coming down hard. Kids were playing in the snow, and Dennis was feeling left out. Mav suggested to go out for a walk with the sledge and ride down some hills. After some while of walking, they found a quiet road with a few kids sledging down. Dennis hopped in the sledge and whizzed down the hill having tonnes of fun, with Pumba chasing after him. Mav even had a go too. Dennis suggested that Pumba hops in the sledge with him, and Mav saw no reason not too. Mav steadies the sledge and Dennis slowly lumbers in. He pats his lap and Pumba hops straight in.
Mav lets go off the sledge and they slowly whizz down the hill. Pumba is barking loudly, Dennis is joyfully screaming. All of a sudden, one of the other parents shout up the hill "There's a car coming!" and there's a sudden crash.
He turns around to see the most horrific site he'd ever seen. He could not believe his eyes. He quickly sprints down the icy hill where he suddenly looses his footing and comes crashing down the hill, hitting his head. He opens his eyes and he sees Susan sitting besides him staring out the window. He could barely remember what happened and had no idea where he was. It turned out he'd been in a coma for 2 months and his little brother and Pumba had been hit by a drunk driver who was coming back from a Christmas party.
The news fucked with his head. He was never the same again. Going from one of the most joyful days of his life to the rock bottom, nearly suicidal moments haunted him forever. His parents decided to move away from the house back to Chernarus.
