Varin on his beginning his third year of medical school applied for the chance to take a trip overseas to Chernarus to hopefully get a chance to get some good field experience in that remote land. With his good grades and record for pleasing his teachers ended up landing him this golden opportunity. Packing up what little he had and what was required for the journey and with little time he ended up taking the midnight flight to begin his journey in search of new ways to learn and gain experience. because at this point all he knew was book and Standard operating procedure; their was no way he would know what how different it actually was to try and save a life. Upon arriving at the southern chernarus airfield he was greeted with a slight rush and subtle panic. In the distance he could hear sirens and loudspeakers that were to inaudible from where he was. Soon after making his way off the plane and retrieving his stuff he went looking for his ride that was supposed to pick him up, sooner or later he would find him and things would seemingly proceed normally. Some months pass and things eventually took a turn for the worst, Varin at the time was studying at the local hospital and overseeing patient illnesses and then that is when it hit, like a storm it seemed at the time, civilians began rushing in with an unknown bacterial infection, no one knows how quickly it happened but soon after military checkpoints were set up and streets cordoned off, curfews in effect and hospitals were slammed to the brim as we would soon call them the "Infected". Varin was in the process of attempting to make his way off the island not knowing exactly what was happening as he was on his way to the airport he could see many planes already leaving. He would later learn that he was now stuck on this island with only his knowledge of medicine and absolutely no self defense skills nor contact with the outside world. And so on his own Varin kept on the move going to one hospital after another trying to learn as much as possible until at the point their were no functioning hospitals left, this went on for a couple years until Varin began moving north.
