Vall Bekov is a hunter who owns a hunting/camp supply shop. He is a natural survivalist. While planning a camp excursion to repair a strained relationship with his daughter Tess, they are split up by a group of soldiers rounding civilians for quarantine/safety checkpoints. After Vall is attacked by a small swarm of infected, he sees them killed by a wounded soldier. Before the soldier can tell Vall where the trucks were headed, he succumbs to his injuries and dies. All Vall could find on his body was a map outlining the multiple military checkpoints across Chernarus. He gathers supplies and sets out to find Tess at all costs.
