Redmond "Red" Mitchell was a Combat Lifesaver, part of the UN peacekeeping troops deployed on Miroslavl when the outbreak happened.
After everything went to hell, he managed to escape and find a secluded spot on the northern part of Chernarus, close to the Black Lake. He was able to stay alive for a couple of months thanks to the abundant medical supplies he was carrying and his survival knowledge.
When things went quiet and the supplies were running out he decided to move. He packed some things and headed out in search of other survivors, not knowing what he would encounter. He roamed around searching for a safe haven, not encountering a single person in his way. He witnessed the horrors of the apocalypse, huge burial grounds, decay everywhere, infected plaguing the hub cities. The world was no longer what it used to be and the beauty of old Chernarus was gone.
He was staring at the hopeless horizon from the top of a cliff, with a loaded gun in his hand. He pushed the barrel against his head and right before pulling the trigger... a gunshot in the distance. Someone was still out there.
