Childhood and Late Teens
Valentin Falkenwacht was born in Germany in 1984, the son of a doctor and author he never had to face any issues in regards to poverty, though his father made sure that he didn't develop into too much of a spoiled kid while he was growing up. At the age of 12 his family moved to Switzerland where his father opened his own medical practice in general medicine. Valentin was generally well behaved, his grades in school good enough bot not perfect, mostly due to a lack in motivation. He started volunteering in the Order of Malta when he was about 16 years of age, taking various first aid courses and attending festivals and events in the general public to assist paramedics in general work such as handing out ibuprofen, applying bandages to cuts and the like.
When he turned 18 he started volunteering as an assistant for EMS technicians driving ambulances in the city of Bern where for the first time he came face to face to people in society less fortunate than him which caused him to rethink some of his life goals, or some sight say develop them in the first place. He put more enthusiasm and focus into learning for school rather than just hanging out with friends and playing video games all day long as those slowly became common in households. University, Conscription and Medical Service in Chernarus
After taking his Matura (secondary education exam in Switzerland) with very good, but not excellent grades he applied to become a medicine student for general medicine at the local university but was placed in the waiting list since students with higher grades or those that had already been waiting were preferred. In this time he completed the mandatory basic training as part of switzerland's cosncription law and volunteered for a longer (total of 300 day service split into small blocks) service in order to be accepted for reserve officer training. He eventually began medical school in 2003 which he completed in 2009 with a masters degree in medicine. Although not yet a full doctor he opted for a year of practical experience in Malteser International - the international crisis first aid wing of the Order of Malta. It was in this capacity that he was part of a team of medics and doctors sent to Chernarus in 2009 when the civil war came to a close.
He helped treat many civilians especially in the northern rural regions where it was hard for civilians to get access to even the most basic of medical care after the war had ended. Overall though Valentin would describe it as a very humbling, challenging yet fulfilling and important experience. He eventually returned to Switzerland in 2010 where he completed his education to become a doctor in general medicine, eventually assisting in both his father's and other medical practices as well as continuing his work in the Army Reserves as the assigned doctor for an artillery and reconnaissance battalion. How the fuck did he end up here
After breaking up with his fiance in 2017 due to personal problems in the relationship he decided to take a break and took some vacation, planning to hike the northern region of Chernarus, hoping to meet some of the people he still knew and kept in contact since 2009 and just not think about anything related to his current situation at home, simply wanting to get away from it. He arrived on the 4th of July and was planning to stay there for two to three weeks, as such he go caught up in the chaos when the outbreak began but managed to flee south fairly quickly thanks to help from the Swiss embassy that evacuated most citizens to the coast fairly quickly.
Unable to fly out of the country by the time he arrived at the airports he stayed and volunteered to help in the local hospitals, as the situation became more dire however he retreated into the forests with some personnel from the hospital and swiss embassy shortly before the situation turned into more of a "each on their own" scenario. Since then he hasn't been seen often on public streets as it seems his group mostly hid away keeping for themselves. Now, two years after the outbreak though their numbers dwindles and the group eventually broke apart, causing him to wander the forests and hills of Chernarus once again, searching for both a new allegiance and people to help if they so require.
