Born in 1990 in the city of Miroslav, Chernarus Johan Bush was never a wise man. His mother died in childbirth and his father never got over his wife death, drowning himself in his work as a CEO for a development company the father ignored Johan needs, leaving Johan without a mother or fatherly figure in life. Distancing himself from his caretakers, Johan became increasingly hostile towards his fellow man, creating issues wherever he went. At the age of 7 Johan was already in therapy, trying to solve the issues life had thrown at him.
Johan's Father got increasingly annoyed with Johan's attitude and at the age of twelve send Johan off too boarding school in Sweden. He was supposed to be studying architecture and design to be able to follow in his father's footsteps. Instead Johan spent his time chasing girls and partying. Johan quickly fell into bad crowds, with rapidly falling grades and less support from his father Johan turned to criminal activities to get by. After a failed liquor store robbery, Johan was arrested by the cops. His father disowned him and he was kicked out of school.
After Johan got out of prison he got a job working at a local warehouse. It was heavy but honest work, the first honest work Johan had ever done, and he hated it. After years of backbreaking labor, a letter of inheritance arrived from his Chernarussian Aunt. Johan was forced to go to Chernarus to properly inherit his aunts wealth. Johan quickly fell in love with the Chernarussian, the landscape, the culture and the people, for once in his life Johan was truly happy.
Johan spent the next couple of years living in Chernarus, using his newfound wealth to invest in local business. When the apocalypse hit, Johan started wandering Chernarus, with no real goal in mind.
