Frankie was a trainee police officer training in Krasnostav and was based at the police station there, he lived in Chernogorsk with his father who was called David Begum, his father was a politician who had a campaign to run for mayor before the outbreak struck, he started training to become an officer of the law to impress his father and also to help him with his campaign by being on the good side of the law.
Frankie had lived in Chernarus for 3 years before the outbreak and moved here after his Mother and Sister had died in a car accident back in England due to a drunk driver, he felt there was nothing left there for him and wanted a new start. His father had lived here for 4 years already prior to Frankie moving here with him. When Frankie first moved he kept to himself and drank a lot in grief for his Mother and Sister, after being hospitalised for drunk driving himself and crashing his car into a tree he vowed to change and never drink again. Frankie held up his promise and began to turn his life around, he studied law and managed to get a degree which eventually led him towards joining the police force to help make the land a better place.
When the outbreak struck Frankie and his father managed to get top his yacht, his father had kept the boat supplied with plenty of food, water and fuel as he feared there would one day be a civil war in Chernarus and he as a politician and possible future mayor would be targeted so in case of a quick getaway was needed he made sure he was prepared, they obviously never expected what happened to happen, though it saved them for a time anyway.
Frank and his father eventually ran out of food, fishing was a good way to gather resources too but with only a single rod it eventually broke and once they ran out of water and fuel it was inevitable they had to return to land. They managed to sail the boat within two miles of the coastline before they ran out of fuel. They made a difficult choice to swim the rest of the way. Frankie's father unfortunately died of hypothermia and sunk beneath the waves. Frank was devastated and barely made it to land himself. Freezing cold and alone once more in the world Frankie knew fe faced an uphill battle for survival in this world he knew nothing about...
Frank only ever took the same route when travelling, From Chernogorsk to Krasnostav and back again, he never travelled any other way as he had no reason too. Once he swam back to land he found himself just East of Khelm, he walked for awhile until he reached the top of a big hill where he found a giant map, he managed to work out where he was and headed for a familliar town where he could resupply... Krasnostav.
