Johnny Shmeck was born in chicago to a jewish family and was raised as a conservative jew.
At the age of 18 he went to college in order to be a doctor, 3 hard years later he decided it was not for him and decided to persue his dream of becoming a chef. Graduating school he decided to go on a trip to eastern europe starting Russia and ending in Chernarus, as he crossed the border from takistan and made his way towards the Inn he noticed something was off. Armed patrols and mile long convoys of the CDF, citizens worried and on edge, and a state nearing emergency.
As he reached the Inn the next day he decided to tour the castle just nearby when a CDF patrol suddenly ordrerd everyone to evacuate towards NE airfield immidiatly.
Packing whatever he could he strated walking towards the airfield seeing fires and exploations all around him in the distance, as he reached the town just outside of his goal he was met by figuers closing in on him, he waved and yelled thinking they were humans, he was wrong.
After fighting off the infected he ran into the woods trying to flee the infected, and survive untill help arrives.
