Growing up in Newark was a rough time for Ty, exposed to a lot of drug and gang conflicts in an early age. His mother, Angel conceived him at Saint Michael’s Medical Center January 15th, 2001. Growing up not rich, nor poor. His father was shot by a blood gang member on his way back from work. An investigation was created and it was found out that his father was involved in illegal down-low gang activity. When Ty grew up he was smart enough to get a good education and get accepted into one of the many prestigious colleges on the East Coast. He majored in social finance and was granted a full coverage of $30,000 for his tuition. Although Ty was convicted of a false charge and a DUI on his way home to his dorm and was jailed for 6 months. Ty fell into a depression. Ty was a lost soul wandering the streets of Newark. One day, when Ty was thinking to himself of putting a bullet in his brain to end it all, he thought of venturing to the countries. He chose Chernarus. Ty decided to ask his friend, Jett, and Sin to embark on a journey together. Jett was one of Ty's best friends-Running back on Varsity football at Harvard University earned his name respectfully, Jett. Sin was always a trouble maker and a joker, if they all worked hard they could overcome any task. Chernarus was always a fascinating place to him growing up and learning about it at school. So he scrapped up enough money working at a grocery mart to finally move to Chernarus. He secured a nice house on the coast near Chernogorsk and life was finally moving up from the darkness. Until the virus hit. When the virus hit Ty didn't know what to do. He couldn't focus it was all rapid fire when the UN was called in and started clearing the virus. Ty took his chances to survive and met up with his friends, Jett and Sin to move up north as he heard of a survivor camp.
