Porter Bailey wasn't really all that much. He would camp and explore but nothing ever really came of that. He was also an avid 'scientist' trying to study and learn everything and anything. Life began to bore him. Eventually as the situation over seas got worse and worse he thought maybe he could go help people and make something of himself he got stuck in the country and has been there ever since. Since he has been here he has been attempting to survive, but also attempting to find out what is wrong with the infected why some are and aren't infected. He knows that it's ultimately fruitless considering he has no real way out, but he supposes that it'll keep him going just a bit longer.
