Simon young grew up in a decent household in Kansas City, Missouri to a hard working family. His father owned a mine and his mother had multiple jobs in different fields. As he grew up Simon hated mining but saw the potential in it. In Simon's late teens he worked in his fathers mine until he eventually had to close after going bankrupt. Simon continued working on mines and got a few good contracts in his early adulthood. A few years later he got the contract that would change his life forever, a contract with a mining agency in Chernarus. Soon after the mining started he ended up getting trapped in a mine with other miners and slowly losing his mind, so much in fact that he started giving his pickaxe a personality and called it Steve. It is not certain what happened in that mine but he came out of it not much different than the infected. He now roams the wasteland with The Horde and follows their leader, The Holy Bucket.
