Ranger Captain Spyke O’Hara.
Surviving member of Sheriff's Rangers.
Formally an Army Cadet leader before the apocalypse in the United Kingdom, now a surviving member of Old-Man Sheriff’s Ranger outfit. A group of cannibal hunting and bandit pacifying rangers formed from ex-military and civilian survivours of the apocalypse. Rangers who once patrolled the lands of Chernarus but who now live in exile on the borders of Russia and the Ukraine.
After escaping the UK with a handful of friends and accumulated comrades the group survivors traversed through Europe seeking refuge. Just as one would have thought, no safe haven was found. Different stories from different survivours the group acquainted themselves with along the way yielded nothing but false hope and broken dreams. During their travels they encountered the degraded remains of humanity. Unforgiving, bloodthirsty bandits and even people fallen far enough to become cannibals who hunt and torment anyone. It was during these times that “Old-Man” Sheriff O’Hara, Spyke's father, a retired US Army Ranger and town Sheriff, took it upon himself to train and mold the group into an effective and brutal fighting force.
The Sheriff’s Rangers were not officially formed until the incident with “Old Man Sheriff”, a valued and loved member of the group. After the group was ambushed by a brutal gang of cannibals they’ve had previous dealings with, Old Man Sheriff was captured during the midst of battle by a surviving but wounded cannibal. Even though the rangers prevailed over the gang, no one realised Sheriff’s disappearance until after the fight. They eventually tracked them down but by that time it was already too late for him. They captured the cannibal and after a heartbreaking goodbye, Sheriff mercied himself and the group vowed to never let cannibalism go unanswered. They executed the cannibal and left him to turn after they buried the old man. In their eyes, that is the ultimate punishment. Being left to wander forever as a servant of undeath.
After that they continued to wander around until they came to a place on the borders of Russia and the Green Sea. A small country known as Chernarus. The group found an unusual amount of survivours in the local area rife with bandits and cannibals. They took it upon themselves to set up and hunt some outlaws.

All went well for a time, the Rangers made a name for themselves with the survivours of Chernarus and more so with the rivalling criminal factions. The Rangers helped a lot of people in their time. Many battles were fought and lives were lost and for a time, the SRD made a difference. They made Chernarus a safer place to live. Until the rise of a criminal element that was orchestrated by one of their own. The Ranger’s former Medic and friend of many years, Cab Bruce.
During the SRD’s time patrolling the lands of Chernarus, they hunted and executed many cannibals and fought with different bandit groups subduing them all. They were never able to catch one cannibal, though. That was because this cannibal lived and operated right under their noses. Trusted friend of many years even before the apocalypse, Cab masqueraded as the groups medic when in secret he was torturing and killing chosen patients that were not associated with and taking pieces of them with him. Eating and fulfilling his sick cravings without a single notice from his comrades.
That was, until, Berezino. During a simple dispute between to people, the contents of Bruce’s bag were revealed in full view of the Rangers and after an altercation that left multiple civilians injured and one ranger injured, Bruce fled and got away. A the same that a bandit faction rose up and in the streets of Berezino and convinced the terrified public to rise up and push the SRD out of Chernarus. Thus began the Battle Of Berezino.
A brutal battle that transpired first on the streets of Berezino with Bubsy The Bear and Erica The Red heading the the fight against the SRD alongside Cab Bruce, their traitorous medic. Even with their training, the Rangers were pushed back by the sheer amount of numbers against them. They retreated to the police station in the center of Berezino where they regrouped and planned their next move. Bruce followed and laid siege to the station. The SRD, surrounded, outgunned and left bloody and all but broken made a final stand before choosing to retreat out of Chernarus. They fled the Police station but lost many lives in the process. What few remaining members survived retreated out of Chernarus to heal and regroup.
Now, after many years in exile in the Ukraine, one of the surviving members of the original SRD has returned to Chernarus. His mission, to establish a foothold, build a base and recon the area. It’s his job to build up information on the surrounding areas and the gangs that inhabit them so the SRD can return to Chernarus and pacify the bandits that now terrorise the local populace. Ranger O'Hara's wounds have healed but he has not forgotten what transpired here and he won’t let the bandit groups terrorise the populace any more.
