Duncan was a young professor at Nottingham university, mainly teaching History to unenthusiastic students. He has a passion for knowledge, especially regarding History, and often took to recording (what he thought were) important events in a journal of his. He moved to Chenarussia shortly before the civil war, convinced he would be able to record History firsthand. Since then he has been recording the events in Chenarussia, knowing he would be acclaimed for the work he does now. He was able to record several battles and events, just to his liking, When the apocalypse came, Duncan was ecstatic, he may have been the only Historian in all of Chenarussia. However as the the days grew sour, he began to wonder if anyone would be alive to read his recordings in the end.
