Born in Belfast and raised strictly Catholic, Patrick was the perfect storm of a rebel. He was insatiable to his parents, who eventually began to ignore Patrick, forcing him into other avenues of rebellion. Once caught stealing computer parts from his high school, Patrick was given the option of juvenile detention, or to join the Army. In the Irish Defense Force, Patrick was deployed 4 times, 3 times to Iraq and once to Syria in the global war on terror. Ohara eventually worked as Army Intelligence and was discharged at 23. From there, Ohara was offered a job in a private military cooperation that operated more in corporate security. He ran armed security details for Kuwaiti Princes, Bosnian Business Moguls, and Japanese shipping companies before landing a contract with a Cherno-Russian lumber company. Ohara started as security at the lumber-yard, as theft was common, but was quickly promoted after his talent was realized. Now guarding the company’s leadership team, Patrick travelled around Eastern Europe with the group, becoming close with the cooperation’s CFO and CEO. In this position, Ohara realized that his employers sold far more than just lumber and wood products; they sold illegal munitions.
Patrick, offered with the opportunity to expose the operation to the Russian government, stuck with his newfound colleagues for a pay raise and a full-time position in the racket. Using his intelligence contacts, the Irishman built an entirely new sales network for the munitions supplier, selling to Libyan rebels, Ukrainian nationalists, and para-military groups in Iraq and Iran. He was now not only distributing ammo and explosives to these companies but was also tasked with filling his old security positions, which he did with former Army friends. He was living life any 24-year-old dreamed of. While his job had elements of danger, Ohara was trained well, and padded himself with other well-trained friends. He lived in a large flat outside Belfast and had a secondary home in Chernarus where he could conduct business. He drove fast cars, attracted beautiful women, and made great money.
When news of the outbreak began, Ohara was in Chernarus signing a deal with the Chechnyan military. The Chechnyans left first, but Ohara’s employers wanted to stay as long as they could, making sure that evacuation was required. They realized what was happening, and he was tasked with placing the leadership of the company besides himself on planes leaving from the Northeast Airfield. Ohara assumed immediate control of his security team, but while on route to the airport their caravan was stopped by armed men. The security forces fought back, and an altercation ensued that left the blockaders dead. Ohara himself was unhurt, but his team took substantial losses. As they approached the airport with the remaining men, the convoy was ambushed again, this time by the undead. Patrick’s car rolled, and he was knocked unconscious is the crash. When he awoke, he found his friends either dead or gone. His vehicle was unusable and his weapons had been stripped of him.
