Jacob Moore was an average kid, growing up in a peaceful suburbia as any normal child born to a well-off family should. Jacob was the child of Gerald Moore and Katya Osmonavic, a Chernarussian female who had immigrated to America. From the day of his birth, Jacob was always a military brat, born to a father who was an active marine. While not always appreciative of the strict nature his father imposed on the household, Jacob learned to make do and become well adjusted to his family environment. His father played a notable role in his earlier years, albeit absent from the family for quite a sizeable amount of his childhood. As soon as Gerald was back home, he'd only have at most a year and a half before the military came dragging him back into another deployment. Jacob would never have a disdain for the military or Marines, noting that his father was doing what was right; protecting the many Americans on the home front. The frequent deployments his father embarked on would even inspire Jacob to have an interest in the military. With the short amount of time that Jackson did spend with his father, he would usually head be accompanying him to the range. Jacob soon learned how to handle a firearm, which was a skill he had an extreme interest in, albeit never being able to make use of the trait practically, until turning eighteen. The days of constantly being deployed would soon be in the past, as Jacob's father would be assigned to a different squadron, one which rarely deployed it's members. This gave many opportunities for the family to make up for lost time, and what better a way to do so than to leave the country on a vacation, and so the Moore family did. Katya proposed the family travel to Chernarus, specifically Souther Zagoria, where she was native to. The family booked their tickets and headed off to Southern Zagoria without much thought, hoping to get away from the stresses of America and at least relax for the time being. Jacob, his father, and his mother all were having a great time within the first week of their vacation, but all changed following his parents leaving for a night out at some of the local pubs within Chernogorsk. Losing contact with both of his parents instantly when the outbreak hit, Jacob would slowly come to realize what was occurring through the panicked Chernarussian broadcasts on the television and the manic individuals wandering the streets, attacking the citizens of the town. He'd lay low for a while, hoping the screams outside would come to an end, and in due time they did, but Jacob needed to move, and he had to move quick. Jacob hadn't a clue on what the things were, other than that they weren't to be considered human anymore. Jacob filled with some hope that he may see his parents again, ventured off out of Chernogorsk, but as time passed, that hope soon diminished. His main goals being only a fragment of what they were originally, Jacob now wishing to only survive, and have as much fun doing so.
