My name's Frank Castle I grew up in a normal family, brother mother and father. I was a pretty popular kid in high school was on the football team and wrestling team. Went hunting with my pops every year. Everything was going my way untill the night before Halloween, it's called Devil's night. We were on are way home from our fav Chinese restaurant when my father flashed his lights at a car coming towards us to let them know there lights where off. Little did we know that car turned around and followed us home. It was a gang intiation, how it goes is they drive around with there lights off at night untill someone flashed their lights at them then they would have to kill everyone in the car. They came in quick and silent, we had no chance. By the time they got to me and my brothers room we had allready climbed out the window onto the roof and were calling the cops. They killed my parents but my pops took one of them down with him. Nothing was missing except my mother wedding band. I always think about that night, how amatures would have never been so quite and organized. They police never found the other killers. It drove my brother crazy to the point we're I found him in an ally interagating a group of punk kids with a gun pointed at them. I tried to calm him down and defuse the situation, these kids where clearly not the killers, they were to young. As I was talking him down one of the kids drew a pistol, my brother fired. The kid went down, then all the kids drew I grabbed my brother ducked down behind a dumpster. They rained down fire on us we both shot back I hit one in the leg my brother killed another. The police showed up not to long into the fight. We were all arrested. My brother got 30 years I was sentenced to 6 years out in 3 for good behavior.
When I got out I had no one my brother was the one I was always with. I started doing some side jobs when I got offered to be a gun for hire, just some body gaurd work. That's when I meet the love of my life Angel. We got married 3 years later, yes a little fast but it was real. We were happy talking about having kids. I was at home talking to angel on the phone while she was driving home from work. When she said to me "some asshole had his lights off on the road" I immediately asked of she flashed her lights at them. She said "yes it's dangerous not to have them on at night" I froze for a split second and told her to drive faster and get here as soon as you can don't stop for.... That's when I heard the crash. They ran her off the road and shot her in the head. I ran to the road she takes home as fast as I could but I was to late they were gone and she was dead lying on the ground. She had my mother's ring on her finger... This wasn't happening to me this couldn't happen again. I lost everything, even my mind for a bit. I needed to leave this place. I asked my employer if he knew anyone looking for protection overseas. He did, he said he had a customer looking for protection on his boat a small team 3 to 4 guys. I took that opportunity immediately, no questions asked. Turns out that boat was head to Elektrozavodsk, at the time I had no idea where that was but I didn't care.
Once we arrived there we where in Port for couple weeks when shit went down. I was in town when I heard the screams and witnessed the dead. I probably should have been watching the news instead of drinking my self blind. I made my way back to the ship, but unfortunately they left without me. Probably high tailed it out with the news. So now I was stuck in an unknown country, had nothing to me name except couple thousand dollars. So I followed the crowds and have been just trying to survive ever since.
