Her life was not the easiest growing up with three brothers and her dad. Her mother had died of lungcancer when she was five years old. Having three male role models in her life she tried to always live up to their expectations. She wanted to be involved in everything they did. So going to the shooting range, hunting even some barfights, she was always in on it. The casual girl next door? No, that's not what she was. People got her attention then when they spoke about stuff like the military or hunting expiriences.
Valeria didn't have many friends as she grew up but the few she had were the most important pieces in her life. They made her complete, aswell as her family who she loved over anything else.
As the infection has spread she quickly lost all connection to her friends. Many died due to the infection aswell. Over the days of being alone in the world, barely meeting anyone she started to move to the woods. There were less infected, there were animals, she had a rifle and enough experience to make it in the forest alone. If her brothers who were in the Chedaki wouldn't have lost the war and got killed by the CDF she would still have them around. Surely survival would have been a lot easier with them than being alone. Many days passed before she decided to leave the safetey of the woods and go back to the coastal cities and villages. Within the few days she has been travelling she really missed the contact to people and being able to talk to someone again. With time passing by she got to meet some people that she was soon able to call friends. They travelled along the country and she was able to show them many new ways of survival, aswell as they were able to show her their skills and teach her new which would be usefull for her.
