Lachland is an SAS soldier from New Zealand deployed to Chenarous on a humanitarian mission. The mission was in anticipation for the outbreak as the UN had information that suggestion it was possible. He was not briefed on what the disaster was, and was simply told to link up with the UN on the ground. After being airdropped in, he found himself in the thick of the outbreak with no sign of any of his comrades. Given his situation, Lachlan has put his skills to work. He is helping people across the land as his mission suggested... alone.
