Kyle was born in Huntington, West Virginia where he grew up very poor, now knowing his father. However, he excelled in school and quickly became top of his class in high school. He overcame his poor appalachian life and got accepted into Harvard where he worked hard. His second semester he took a semester studying abroad in Chernarus, an exciting and culturally rich country on the border of russia, however that is when the infection struck and all airports were closed, trapping him and his classmates in Chernarus. Over the years trapped in the disease ridden Chernarus, Kyle lost everyone he knew and now acts a loner, traveling the country on his own, using skills he learned in appalachia to survive and outsmart both the living and dead that would see him killed.
