The character I am planning to play is going by the name of Saggio 'Odin' Montagna. Born into a first generation Italian-American family, Saggio (meaning wise in Italian), was subject to be a great heir to the family's name as he was the only boy in the family besides his now dead younger brother. In his younger days, Saggio was always quick to help anyone or be the first in line for any experiments in his class. There was even points in class where the teacher had to ask him to not participate as much the following day. Although, ambitious and adventurous as he was in his younger years, this quickly changed when his younger brother Guido died. At the young age of 15, sophomore in high school, Saggio changed into something different. The personality of the once super athletic, insanely interactive, and genius student shifted. Saggio went from loud to quiet, participated a lot but not as much as he used to, and stayed healthy/extremely fit. All of his friends were dropped, he went solo and rolled with the punches that life provided him. There would be times where Saggio was his old-self and other times where he was the opposite, most likely being his desire to have his old life but realizing that it's not going to come back, sinking back into depression. Everyone described him as extremely enigmatic, charming, and powerful which dubbed him the name of "Odin", a norse mythological character whose known as one of the most powerful beings in the mythology. It started as a joke from one of his classmates that turned into a quick nickname around the school and caught on. At this point in time, Saggio was ready to move on with life, given his sentence on life and ready to serve it. He quickly finished high school and went into the army where he was hoping to thrive. The army, where his family didn't want him to go. Although, the benefits in the end were much more important then the thoughts of his family at the time. The first two years of the army went smoothly, stationed at a base and did his normal routine of PT and patrols with minimal conflict. After the two years however, things took a huge dip, changing the course of his life even more. The word of a dangerous virus that could kill you spread its way to the military base that he was stationed at. Thinking nothing of it, Saggio kept to himself until him and his squad were being ordered to parts of Russia where help was needed to contain the virus. Knowing nothing, Saggio asked around revealing only the word 'Chernarus' and his orders was all he could and would know. Flying into Chernarus, there was tons of conflict in the communications between the Russians and Americans, leading to fuel loss and eventually a crash landing. Although, before the crash, Saggio was ordered by his commander to jump out with his squad. The adventurous side of Saggio kicked in. He was first in line again knowing he had to finish his orders for his brother Guido who had died several years earlier to a drunk driver. The time came for the jump, right over the coast. Saggio tightened his parachute, looked back and yelled "Meet me at the North West military base if we don't land together, I'll head straight there." With that, Saggio looked straight, jogged forwards and jumped, free falling into a completely unknown country. Without a rough landing, Saggio landed on the grass near the coast in his fatigues that resembled Civilian clothes. The way planes work, jumping out even a second later could land you far from the person who jumped before you. With this in mind, Saggio kept in mind he was alone like he always was in the world. Saggio headed into the town nearest to him, looking for a ride up to the North West airfield. There was a man in the street crouched away from Saggio while looking over a body. Thinking the man was crying over a friend who has died in the apparent chaos around, Saggio called out hoping the man would feel better with some authority around. The man quickly turned around to reveal its face eaten face that maggots made home. He quickly ran at Saggio, throwing off Saggio and making him panic. This was easy, this was what Saggio trained for, this was Odin.. a warrior. Saggio ran towards the water and quickly juked the monster in front of him. The thing fell, giving Saggio time to jump on top of it, spit in its face with disgust, and stomp on his chest a few times before realizing it wouldn't die. Saggio sighed in the thoughts of what he was about to do to the thing that was gnawing at his arms. He stood up, held the thing down with one foot and prayed. There was one second between the prayer and the slam of his foot into the thing's face. He stood straight up, looking out at the ocean and realizing how dangerous the things would be without weapons and in groups. Saggio nodded to assure himself he could do this. He grabbed what he could from the first victim and turned around, ready to make his way to the North West airfield like his commander has told him and Saggio had told his squad. The only thing that stayed in his mind was that he was a warrior, someone who always stayed strong through tradgies. Even with these thoughts, the only thing he could hope was that his family was safe and knew that he loved them.
