Born in Texas to a poor farm family, growing up he he was taught 2 important life traits, how to hunt and how to live off the small plot of land his family has owned for a many generations, he was thought that from an early age and continued it all though his young life. He knew from a young age he wanted to use his skills and take them to the Military with him. When he turned 18 and graduated from high school he enlisted in the army where he spent the next 8 years furthering his skills to survive and protect. after 8 years of service he found himself in a bit of trouble and was discharged for war crimes and distribution charges. this was very unsettling to him and he needed to get away, he remembers that one of his love interest went to Chernarus and he wanted to go after her since he hadn't heard from her in a long time and wanted to make sure she was OK. little did he know when he got there that things where going to get bad really quick, he didn't know that there was a flu thing running a muck on the land he thinks he heard someone call it the frenzied flu, He didn't know where to start looking for his love, so he started looking for any signs of life any where he could look. He would do what he could do with what he knows to stay alive to find her!
