Xavier found himself travelling through Chernarus after completing an assignment, even though it was on a diplomatic passport it still seemed strange that this was the flight path his superiors planned. While he was waiting at the airfield for his flight back home to Johannesburg to back brief his superiors he went over the flight details he was given then looked at his watch wondering what was taking so long, He thought to himself, "Why is the plane not being prepared? Where is the flight crew?" While he was sitting and waiting sitting on a supply trunk he thinks to himself "Where is everyone else for that matter? It is too quiet" He decides to go have a look around "The plane isn't going anywhere soon"
FIRE! screamed a Chernarussian soldier and in an almost immediate response there were bullets flying all around Xavier, CEASE FIRE! CEASE FIRE! he screams out while he's taking cover behind a truck tire. He then hears the Chernarussian solder call out CEASE FIRE!, Xavier comes out of cover and demands to know why soldiers were live firing through a military airfield??? The soldier says "We thought you were one of the dead walkers" "What the hell are you talking about? What is a dead walker?" asked Xavier, Those things over there pointed the soldier. Xavier goes over to investigate and finds a corpse lying on the ground but somehow it is still twitching, "What is going on here?", the soldier responds "You need to get out of here now if you want to live". "I have been waiting for the flight crew to prep the plane for almost 3 hours" Xavier said, "The flight crew are all dead, we are the only ones left" said the soldier. Confused and not knowing fully what has happened he walks around and tries to figure out how to get out of there.
"RUN!!!" he screams out as he sees a group of dead looking people running towards the soldiers. It was too late, one of the Chernarussian soldiers throw a grenade to take the group out in one strike but the shrapnel hit a fuel storage tanker near the group and it exploded before anyone could find cover. Xavier was thrown against a wall from the pressure wave of the explosion, and fell to the ground unconscious. After about an hour he wakes up, dazed and still not grasping what has happened he drags himself to his feet, salvages whatever equipment he could find and leaves the airfield looking for answers.
