Hank Wampan was born in the small town of Raleigh, North Carolina. He had several siblings, three bothers and two sisters, and he got along well enough with them. As he started to ease into his teens, he grew distant from his father who was a spiritual head at the local Indian reservation, a man who practiced a seemingly dead culture in a modern world, and Hank hated his father for this. His father always fought for peace, and never advocated for conflict or war, and was very open to his family about this. On his 20th birthday, Hank decided to enlist in the United States Marine Corps. He served as an active duty member, but never officially saw combat until the Gulf War in 1990 where he served until the war's end. Hank served regularly until he got the call about the situation in Chernarus. Society was apparently on the verge of collapse, and the marines were being deployed to stop the spread of a mysterious illness. Hank was scheduled to land at an airstrip in the east of Chernarus but his plane was subsequently caught in a storm and crash landed off the coast of Berenzino. He climbed ashore with the survivors of the crash, and were met by a swarm of infected. He was separated from the survivors amidst the chaos and he ran into the woods near a small village. On the verge of a mental breakdown at all that had happened in the past few hours, Hank tried to pull himself together. He started to nervously itch all over his body and he thought in his mind he was being swarmed by thousands of tiny insects, he stripped off his gear and a small satchel fell onto the floor. Hank snapped to his senses on realization of what the satchel was. He had been given the satchel by his father upon his first deployment, but in spite he did not open it, however he could not bring himself to throw it away. He decided then in this moment he should at least open it to see what was inside. He found a note alongside several primitive tools and a book containing several preserved traditions of his father's tribe. The note explained to Hank his fathers pursuit in life, and although he was disappointed that Hank joined the corps, that Hank was still his son, and that one day maybe he would find peace. Over the next few months, Hank slowly began to loose his grip on the outside world and became heavily enthralled with the teachings in the book his father had given him. He started to cling to the local wildlife, and relied upon it for survival. Hank began to believe that mother nature had begun to take her revenge on mankind for all that they had done. However, there are still remnants of Hank's self within him, and as he starts to integrate himself back with other survivors, he starts to behave a bit more and more like himself again. Only time will tell of what will happen to Hank.
