Group Theme Song
Shortly after the ship has left everyone stranded, there seemed to be no refuge in sight. The remaining human survivors of the crash made their way into Berezino and gathered at the school. There, they weighed options about where they could go and who they would take with them. They decided to stick together and make their way inland to find supplies and maybe others. They encountered more infected, careful not to rouse their senses, they snuck around. They went inward toward Kabinino. There, they were told, was a military safe house conducted by the CDF, UN as well as the WHO. While there, they ran into many survivors much like themselves, stranded, alone and without aid.
It was there too, that they first encountered the VDV. Russian Militants sporting red berets and thick accents. There they imposed their own laws while CDF, NATO, UN and WHO stood by and allowed the bullying of the new-citizens of Chernarus. The group decided it was best that they leave and build a home elsewhere until the promised evacuation was delivered by NATO, The UN and WHO. While in this camp, it came to light that one of the survivors was doing some illicit drug selling and gun smuggling. While he ran, his girlfriend was arrested under suspicion of aiding him in the smuggling. The VDV took her to an airfield where they kept her locked away.
She was beaten, tortured and released to deliver a message. The man, Garrett would be found and put the trial. The VDV were hunting him down and would continue to bully the group until he was found. Meanwhile, the camp was shut down and they were forced to leave the camp to go back to Kabanino where they were forced to remain. She has been stabbed in the hand, her ribs broken and her face cut and bruised. She refused to tell anyone what had happened, but whenever the VDV were present she seemed to cower. While her wounds were being treated she was under round the clock watch by the Russians.
Luckily for the group, there was a doctor, working with the UN, who rescued and smuggled them out of the Kabanino camp. Brackett took them away to Altar radio tower. The other half of the group that had not been captured met with Taryn, Brackett, and his friend and took Taryn off of his hands. After they were rescued, it came to light that a member of the group, and older man named Rysen, had told the VDV that Garrett’s girlfriend Taryn was involved with the smuggling though it was known that she wasn’t. He had done this out of spite for Garrett and wanted to teach him a lesson by putting the young girl in danger. He hadn’t know, however, that she would be tortured. That night, at Devil’s castle summer camp, a fight broke out and Rysen was tied up along with John, a reporter.
In anger, Garrett executed the old man, in front of the entire group to make an example. For the entirety of the group, it was the first time they had seem someone executed, but wouldn’t the last. He made sure they knew this too would happen to them if they messed with him or the rest of his people. In fear, Taryn sent Garrett away and they hunkered down at the Devil’s castle summer camp. Days Later, the VDV came and stole Taryn away again. This time because they could not find Garrett and because they had run from Kabinino. Their new camp was smack on the border of their new quarantine. They told taryn the only way she could keep the camp and help civilians as she had been doing, was to give them information as it was given to her.
She agreed to be an informant to save her people and keep them safe. That wasn’t enough however. Ermak, then the station leader of the VDV present in the country, took Taryn in the night and used her as bait to lure out Garrett. Garrett showed up for his trial… for the Murder of Rysen, for smuggling and abetting, and for contraband. He was put to death by firing squad while Taryn watched on. While distressed and emotionally ruined, they returned her again to kabanino where she refused to tell her friends what had happened. Instead, in a cold and proud voice, the news was delivered by the VDV: Garrett had been brought to justice.
The next few days were a blur to the group. There wasn’t enough words to explain the pain, betrayal and painful silences that followed. Oliver, the group’s youngest member, had found himself with the responsibility of keeping the group in line, along with Samia, Winston and Joey.
The group continued to feed information to the VDV in exchange for the allowance of keeping their camp. Ermak and his men would stop by frequently to ‘check’ on them. People of all types would stop by to get needed items, eat, drink and be on their way. It wasn’t long before the quiet was broken. While some uneasiness had caused the VDV to withdraw, a member or two remained in the country, hiding with the survivors at their camp. They had become criminals of desertion. One of them, Anton, had recently come into Taryn’s view as a potential lover. This caused upheaval within the ranks of the survivors. They couldn’t trust an ex-VDV member, let alone one of which who was personally there and had helped to torture Taryn. She reassured them and begged they give him a chance.
As this was happening, a power vacuum caused many small groups that wanted a foothold to rise and begin bullying those around them. One of which, came to the camp and demanded 60% of the profits of the camp. The group tried to explain that there were no ‘profits’ and that the camp was a charity, to which they were told that they then would have no problem giving them everything. They were told the camp no longer belonged to them.
Anton, Winston, Joey, and others stood their ground and a firefight broke out. Winston was killed. Joey, John, Anton were severely injured and they lost the camp. Defeated, they retreated to Severograd. They buried Winston there. They then moved further north to a small town called Nagornoe, where they made their home to prepare for winter. Anton has talked the rest into taking up mercenary work amongst other thing to prepare for the winter. They needed hundreds of cans of food. On top of this, just before the camp was taken, it had been announced that Taryn was pregnant.
They worked hard, stealing, working, robbing people. They were having a hard time making ends meet. It wasn’t until an unlikely set of friends made themselves available to the group that they got the help they needed. They went by the Gremlins, and at the time Brackett had become a member. He offered to help them, provide food and make their work a little easier. Meanwhile, Anton left to work with their members and promised to return with some much needed food and relief supplies. To this day, he still hasn’t returned.
After he disappeared, with Joey out of work, and Taryn newly miscarried as well as the recent heat rising from warring groups: Taryn and Samia retreated to the woods. They lived alone for some time before they eventually were split up due to unforeseen troubles.
Taryn would suffer an unfortunate fate, brought on by terrible circumstances.
A man named Borris would pick up her torch to lead the group, hoping to carry on Taryns values.
Borris now attempts to pick up the pieces and keep the group together.
