Kodey sadly passed away on the 30/07/2017 after receiving a fatal bite from the infected,
he died in the company of UN personnel after their best efforts failed to help him.
========== His Background ================================================
Since Kodey was young, it was obvious he was different. He had the ability to inspire, lead and protect people. He lived a rather independent life, living at home with his mother after his father died when he was 16. From a young age he had the ambition of joining the British Army, but as his mother was a pacifist she forbid him to join, instead pushing him down a career as a weapons instructor at his local shooting range. The things he learnt handling these weapons helped him to become talented with certain weapon systems, and this skill would help him in the future. Still determined to join the military his mother allowed him to join the UN as personal security. He excelled through basic training and became the soldier he always wanted to be pushing through the ranks to become a sergeant.
============== Background in the UN =======================================
Comrades described him as: Trustworthy, An essential pair of hands, a guardian
Role: UN Personal Security
Rwanda - 1993 October (Covert protection of UN Security Officials)
-Republic of Yugoslavia- 1994 April (Assisted in the extraction of UN Peacekeepers after riots became heated)
-Syria -2012 April (Protect visiting UN officials) + (was shot in leg during ambush)
Reason for discharge- He was medically discharged because the damage to his leg put him in a position where he was unfit for services as it had major effects on his stamina and reacuring infections to the wound made it impossible for him to work in the field, however he protested strongly about this.
Awards - The "Military Medal" - Kodey was awarded this for his "heroic" efforts in the successful protection the officials in the attack taking a bullet for a council member. Initially he refused the award as he believed he was only doing his job, however he eventually looked at it as his greatest achievement being a physical award as well as a mental award knowing he saved someones life.
==============Life After The UN ============================================
Temporarily returning to his jobs as weapons instructor Kodey still felt it was his duty to support and aid the UN so he became well known for his UN awareness campaigns and his fund raiser events, he felt the UN took advantage of these events using him for publicity. It was these events that drew the attention of the media. He appeared on BBC News along side his colleges talking about his journey and his actions in the UN. It was these events that brought Kodey to Chernarus. A school located in Chernogorsk got in contact with Kodey asking if he could present to the children explaining the aims and actions of the UN bringing all his battle worn kit as it was a key topic they were studying, as well as this the presentation would also be used to help improve their English allowing them to learn from a true native speaker. So soon after Kodey and a translator embarked on a long flight to Chernarus.
================== Post Outbreak =========================================
Kodey took it into his hands to aid the healthy civilians in the area, however being exposed to an event like this lead him to be very careful when approached by strangers ensuring they weren't infected and maintaining his Military skills he looked to establish contact with and organisations in the country to provide security or aid in the restoration of the government. Eager to help people, he wasn't afraid to kill if it meant the preservation of more life. Above all there was one major issue, his leg. still sustainable to infection he required a constant supply of antibiotics to prevent complications, and it would begin to hurt badly after intense work or exercise.
The thing he saw took a major toll on his personality making him become more closed and argumentative, however it always seem to conclude with him coming to his senses. He tried to hold back his anger but it always seemed to get the better of him.
