The Early Years
If there is something I cherish quite dearly it would have to be the advice that my mother thought me. That knowledge is power and through expanding our horizon by any means we would improve ourselves in the process. HECC, Takistan and Chernarus
On my 18th Birthday I was faced with the same difficult question every teenager my age is faced with: 'What do I do now?'. I had matriculated with decent enough marks that my choices weren't too limited. I had several interests ranging from IT to Engineering to even the Military, but the latter wasn't going to happen. Not while I was still in South Africa. I was leaning towards IT and the potential of working with computers all day, but my friend had other ideas.
He introduced me to his father who had heard that I was interested in a Military Career as well as Engineering. Even though I was a greenhorn with little or no experience he said they were looking for candidates to train and I would be perfect for the role. What role was it? An Field Engineer in the Hazardous Environment Containment Corporation or HECC for short. I'm not going to bore you with the training I had to go through, but it took me about four years to get into a somewhat decent shape.
At that point things were heating up in the country Chernarus. HECC was contracted to provide aid and security to our client's assets in Takistan at this time.
During my time in Takistan I managed to make a small name for myself when it came to constructing. So it came as no surprise that my team and I were subcontracted by an Organization to construct some facilities for them. Even though we pushed to get a security contract with them negotiation in the end broke down.
I was on my way to a Monthly Report meeting when we heard on the radio about the strange symptoms that starting to plague the people of Chernarus. Upon reaching the Facility it went on a lockdown to insure our survival and to prevent any contamination.
For the initial weeks of what now is known simply as the Outbreak we kept hidden away in the Bunker. Unaware of what has happened to my team, Chernarus or even the rest of the world. Upon finally emerging from the bunker we found that a lot of people in the area had become infected by a disease that turns them into rabid animal-like creatures.
I of course immediately wanted to go and regroup with my team, but the security consultants with me advised against it until we knew what was happening. Current Situation
I've fallen back on the HECC primary directive. Once I've established an commlink with the Corporation again we'll move forward with the initiative.
Arachnophobia - Fear of spiders.
Hyperalgesic Trypanophobia - Fear of needles.
Claustrophobia - Fear of confined spaces.
