Tyler Jankins (Or TJ) was born into a good family, a mom, a dad, and 3 little sisters. He was born into a good region, a small town, but still big enough to explore. He was also born into adequate wealth as his family owned 2 different very popular restaurants. This... Is probably why TJ was the most annoying little brat of a kid you’d ever meet. Maybe it was the boredom of the small town, or the lack of brothers, but something lit a fire under this kid that made him determined to be the biggest pain in the ass. He would pee in soups, throw anthill dirt balls, drop a M80 in the school toilet and start fights he could never win with those twice his size. But just because TJ was mean, doesn’t mean he was stupid, he would downplay his grades as to not look to smart, purposefully picking the wrong answers. But one day, his father had enough of his shit. His father sent him on the first train to the military boarding school that absolutely did its job, after 3 months TJ lost his will to fight, broken by the presence of real discipline. But after that, a changed man, he began to love the military, first thing he could he joined the air force. After only 3 years of service he became one of the best F-16 pilots they had, which was probably why he was the first to be sent to Chernarus when the shit hit the fan. I say he was the first, but not the only, NATO sent thousands of pilots and hundreds of planes all around the globe o help with relief efforts. Since they needed everything they could get in the shortest time possible, safety precautions were disregarded, planes were taken off the Assembly line half-finished and fixed on the way to their destination. Tyler Jankins got one such plane, while providing precision ordinance drops to the hordes on the ground one of his engines blew out, Tyler quickly switched to idle power to asses the damage, he decided to abort his mission and head for home. Limping along with one engine he flew out to sea to rendezvous with is carrier. About 2 miles over open water his other engine suddenly exploded sending TJ forcefully sideways into his seat. Quickly spiraling toward the ocean TJ pulled the ejection lever to send him flying upwards (Or sideways in this case) with such force that it nocked him out cold. He awoke just mere moments before reaching the water. The brief nock-out made him lose his sense of direction, knowing that the carrier will not look for him, and knowing that he will certainly die if he continues to swim towards the carrier. He decides to swim back to shore and radio for help, he makes it to the beach tired and wet. He reaches an abandoned house where he finds some dry clothes and encounters his first infected, all of his days of pulling the trigger on faint bobs on the ground had never prepared him for horrors truly await him.
