Ben Archer is a high school drop out who's 23 (as of current), before the troubles of chernarus he was a aspiring engineer working on a contractor role in Elektro. Working for the local government providing support in their factories and power stations. He was brought up in the United Kingdom by his uncle Damo, this was due to his parents being separated and essentially not wanting a child yet... That's where Damo stood up to the task of raising Ben. Because of his troubled upbringing he wasn't that accustom of trusting people, so didn't really get on with many people in school, he started taking time off to work on things like bikes, cars, and trying to think of inventions to help with day to day life. Damo was an engineer whilst bringing up Ben so often gave him alot of inspiration he needed to keep himself occupied. Ben finished school but with only one or two qualifications. Ben was also abit of a trouble maker in school, picking fights he couldn't win but this was just because he was teased about his parents leaving him. Ben never was much of a fighter though so was an easy target for bullies, this is another reason he wasn't too fond of going into school. Luckily Damo being a well skilled engineer he managed to get Ben an apprenticeship at his workplace. Little did Ben know he was filling in for Damo a year on from his apprenticeship. A year or so go by and Ben has replaced Damo as a skilled highly paid Engineer. He's offered the chance to travel and get paid even more ... this is where Ben arrives in the land of Chernarus. Working there for a few years in engineering he is offered a big break from the Chernarus Government. He doesn't want to miss this chance and takes it. Leaving the company Damo got him into. Ben isn't much of a fighter, he's a relaxed guy who hasn't had a great upbringing, he doesn't like being around big groups, but he'll definitely value having close and trust able friends. He knows he needs to watch his back at all time, and he has a loyal heart. His favourite thing to remember is "don't bite the hand that feeds you" he remembers those who help him get to where he is and he'll repay them in anyway he can. What he needs to discover is, is he really capable of surviving this trouble in Chernarus. Being an Engineer in the past he's well skilled in knowing what he needs to survive, he's a smart guy he just doesn't have the paper pieces to show it, but his practicality skills are brilliant. He'll be a great pioneer in building the right camp for himself and a friend if needed. He's a good cook, however he'll definitely need to find someone who is willing to help him learn the true means of survival in a place like Chernarus. He needs to learn how to hunt, how to handle weapons, how to if needed in the worst case ... kill.
