The outbreak of 2017 was a harsh time. People fought over scraps, brother turned against brother, and humanity tore itself apart. It was a savage time riddled with betrayal and deceit. It's at times like these that the truest and bravest of hearts stand out among the chaos. One of those hearts belonged to Lucas Hicks. A foreigner from Canada, Lucas refused to allow this decaying world to consume him. A former Lieutenant in the Canadian Armed Forces, Lucas quickly realized that the world needed strong minded people to lead what was left of humanity into a brighter future.
In 2018, Lucas led a small band of survivors into Livonia from the south. It was here that Lucas met a remarkable man. A man that taught him much and gave him something that had been lacking for a long time. Hope. This man was Joshua Houser. Joshua showed Lucas that there was still good in the world. Together they visited settlements and towns, handing out supplies wherever was needed and assisting locals in clearing out new places to live. Not much was known about Joshua, some even thought up stories about how he was sent from the heavens to guide humanity back to its former self. For the next year, Lucas and Joshua worked together to build the foundations of the Rising Hope Militia. A group of individuals from all walks of life, people willing to fight for a brighter future, a more civilized future.
“It’s time we stood up against the evil that’s been allowed to flourish through this tragedy and push it back with something much greater… hope.” - Joshua Houser
In 2019, Joshua decided that Lucas was strong enough to lead R.H.M on his own. With a firm shake of hands, Joshua departed for lands unknown, with the single goal of pulling those that had fallen from grace from the darkness in which they dwell.
Now working alone, Lucas sought out like-minded individuals in which he could trust to uphold the values that R.H.M was built upon. Throughout the remainder of 2019, Lucas did his utmost to keep R.H.M together, assisting in the construction of settlements and recruiting strong survivors capable of protecting those that could not protect themselves.
The group moved to a secure location in which they could coordinate themselves better and more efficiently, becoming more organised as the days went by. The group flourished as individuals like Elijah Storm and Ryan Hall stood above the rest and took charge wherever Lucas needed it. With the group now well and truly on its feet, operations were expanded and the group began assisting with causes brought to them by survivors in need.

Lucas Hicks POV: The video shows pretty much everything there's not really anything for me to add. I initiated on him after Laski and Eagle got annoyed with him and then helped bring him over to the apartment building. After that, I ran off to look for his friends and wasn't present for anything that happened at the apartment.
Matthew Stone PoV:
Nihoolious told everyone to lay down repeatedly during the initiation and after around 20 seconds you still had not laid down. He then started to count down from 3 after which you still didn't comply and he shot you.
