Simon grew up in a small settlement on the coast of North Sydney, Nova Scotia. He was part of a small crew filled with Traders, Engineers, Mechanics and Doctors and only knew the peaceful lifestyle other than the global pandemic that was corrupting the world. His group was attempting to fix up a large fisherman vessel to eventually leave the coast and explore other parts of the world. That would take weeks for the engineers and mechanics to fix the ship so with all that time available Simon had picked up the basic survival skills by one of his mentors named Garrett. Garrett was an elderly man who took Simon in when he was found in a collapsed house at a young age with no knowledge of Simon's parents. Garrett had acted as a father figure to Simon and made sure that Simon would be ready when the day would come that he would be all alone. Once the vessel was finished being repaired Simon and his group took sail into the Atlantic ocean with no destination in sight. Life at sea was calm and peaceful with enough food to last them months if needed. One particular evening there was a deadly storm in which the waves were hard to maneuver around and eventually the vessel had hit a wave on the coast of Norway which had disabled it. There was a small scouting party that had found the crashed ship and checked on if any survivors were present and to their surprise they found Simon and the rest of the group. They had spoken highly about about a large settlement in Nyheim that habited tons of people and that there was a governing body there to help. It was decided that Simon and his group would make the travel to this large settlement and began making the hike on foot. Garrett had fallen ill on their journey and eventually ended up passing away but Simon knew he was ready to survive on his own. Conflict within the group had risen and everyone went on their separate ways once they had entered Nyheim and it was up to Simon to figure out what to do now.
