Fawkes Vakid grew up and lived an average young life: Playing games with friends and Family, doing great in school, and generally having a good time. However, when he turned 16, his father got drunk one night and had come home and beat his mother unconscious, nearly killing her. On that night, Fawkes had gotten scared and taken a kitchen knife from the kitchen as his father went after him next, and right as his father bust down the door to his room out of anger, he jumped on him and stabbed him in the neck several times, effectively killing him. The police were called and had arrived shortly after to him, covered in blood and helping his mother out the door saying that she needed a hospital. Fawkes was later put on trial for what he'd done (as it was still murder, despite it being self defense to a degree) but was ultimately found not guilty due to the fact that he was a minor. Several years passed and fawkes found a new and strange interest in death, and the aspect of the taking of life. He started almost like your typical psycho movie, killing small animals at first but then progressing to neighbors' dogs and pets that annoyed him, and soon even his own mother when she had started to roughly handle him and "discipline him" as she said. He never believed her, and had enough at that point, so he had killed her by pushing her down the stairs, relishing in the sound of her screams getting even more pain filled until she had finally hit the bottom step and died. The police once again arrived, but could not find any evidence as to what had happened, and Fawkes was set to be put in an orphanage, but his uncle (His cousins' father) had taken him in instead. He spent the rest of his life with his three cousins, Fil, Sara, and Danny and eventually got a job in business many years later, and rose through the corporate ladder at a shockingly fast rate, as many of his superiors and coworkers seemed to go missing without a trace at a rate of about one every two months. After making it to assistant manager, he was caught one night by a secretary amidst slitting the throat of the manager for the company he had worked for, naturally, he was arrested and found guilty on nearly 2 dozen counts of 1st degree murder by the time the law had caught up to him, and sentenced to death. However, since he was originally born in Chernarus (Along with many of his family members), he was sentenced to a prison/asylum off the coast of South Zagoria in order to await a painful, slow death by the hands of the guards, who in chernarus were known to execute prisoners in a very cruel fashion due to many being prisoners of war. About 4 weeks into his "stay" in the asylum, the outbreak occurred, and riots ensued when the infected broke loose on the island, killing many of the guards, prisoners, and other staff in the prison. Fawkes spent a few days watching through his cell door's small, rectangular slot as everyone was eaten, turned, or just straight dead. After the 4th day, he ran out of spare food he had hidden for a plotted breakout, and it turned out to be his lucky day, as several civilians made their way to the prison and killed the infected, as well as released him, the only prisoner who stayed in their cell. That was the biggest mistake of their life, as within an hour, he left that prison soaked in blood, and carrying some new "toys"...trinkets from some unlucky victims.
