Grim Walker’s Backstory
Grim Sargent Walker is a survival expert and a retired Marine special forces officer. He married Rose Berree Walker when he was the age of 30. Rose was a nurse at the VA hospital Grim was recovering at after his last tour in the Marines. After Grim and Rose were wed he promised her he would not go back to service in the military. Grim began a survival school and started making survival videos and posting them on the internet at first just to promote his school but in time he became good at the entertainment aspect of it and enjoyed making the videos. 2 years after Grim and Rose were married Lisa Kimmy Walker was born, 11 years after that Jassan Gavin Walker was born. Grim’s school and internet videos grew in popularity so much so that in the last year or so he was approached by the Discovery channel to make a survival show that was going to be named Walking the Earth. Grim and Rose decide to take a nice family vacation, a relaxing cruse before he gets into the busy hustle and bustle life of show business. So with their 15 year old daughter Lisa, and 4 year old son Jassan in toe they set off for what they believed was going to be a fun, exiting, and care free trip… little did they know…

Question 8) Describe your character’s Moral code?
Grim believes in to codes that direct his moral actions one was drilled into him by his father and the other was drilled into him by the Marines and those two codes are as fallows.
The Marine code of honor:
Honor: Honor requires each Marine to exemplify the ultimate standard in ethical and moral conduct. Honor is many things; honor requires many things. A U.S. Marine must never lie, never cheat, never steal, but that is not enough. Much more is required. Each Marine must cling to an uncompromising code of personal integrity, accountable for his actions and holding others accountable for theirs. And, above all, honor mandates that a Marine never sully the reputation of his Corps.
Courage: Simply stated, courage is honor in action, and more. Courage is moral strength, the will to heed the inner voice of conscience, the will to do what is right regardless of the conduct of others. It is mental discipline, an adherence to a higher standard. Courage means willingness to take a stand for what is right in spite of adverse consequences. This courage, throughout the history of the Corps, has sustained Marines during the chaos, perils, and hardships of combat. And each day, it enables each Marine to look in the mirror, and smile.
Commitment: Total dedication to Corps and Country. Gung-ho Marine teamwork. All for one, one for all. By whatever name or cliche, commitment is a combination of (1) selfless determination and (2) a relentless dedication to excellence. Marines never give up, never give in, never willingly accept second best. Excellence is always the goal. And, when their active duty days are over, Marines remain reserve Marines, retired Marines, or Marine veterans. There is no such thing as an ex-Marine or former-Marine. Once a Marine, always a Marine. Commitment never dies.
And the Ranger Creed:
RECOGNIZING: that I volunteered as a Ranger, fully knowing the hazards of my chosen profession, I will always endeavor to uphold the prestige, honor, and “esprit de corps” of the Rangers.
ACKNOWLEDGING: the fact that a Ranger is a more elite soldier who arrives at the cutting edge of battle by land, sea, or air, I accept the fact that as a Ranger my country expects me to move farther, faster and fight harder than any other soldier.
NEVER: shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be. One-hundred- percent and then some.
GALLANTLY: will I show the world that I am a specially selected and well- trained soldier. My courtesy to superior officers, neatness of dress, and care for equipment shall set the example for others to follow.
ENERGETICALLY: will I meet the enemies of my country. I shall defeat them on the field of battle for I am better trained and will fight with all my might. Surrender is not a Ranger word. I will never leave a fallen comrade to fall into the hands of the enemy and under no circumstances will I ever embarass my country.
READILY: will I display the intestinal fortitude required to fight on to the Ranger objective and complete the mission though I be the lone survivor.
Outside of this Grim believes there is little he mite not do in the pursuit of his survival and the pursuit of the protection of his family. Grim is thankful that in his life this has not yet been put to the ultimate test.

Question 16) What was the dark secret your father told you the year before the cruise trip.
Grim’s father told him that around the time of his conception his mother and father were going through the roughest time they went through in their relationship and that Ben may not be his father. Grim could have gone his whole life never knowing this and he would have been just fine as it is now he is just ignoring it.
Question 17) Your character has a minor phobia. Describe the incident that led to this phobia.
Grim was 10 years old and was on a camping trip with his father. Grim’s father was bit by a poisonous snake thankfully one to witch they had an anti-venom. Grim grabbed the med kit and looked for the anti-venom but it was not in its place and it took Grim longer than it should have to find it but luckily he got the anti-venom to his father just in time. From that day forth he developed a minor from of Ataxophobia: the fear of disorder or untidiness.
Question 18) In your youth, you killed someone. Describe what happened and how you feel about it.
It was a day not unlike any other day in Polson High School that is until lunch. A shot rang out the girl sitting across the lunch table from Grim suddenly looked shocked and crumpled back. Jimmy Morgan (a boy who was often the victim of cruel Bullies) screamed out “NO ONE WILL EVER PUSH ME AROUND AGAIN” and started shooting wildly into the crouded lunch room. Grim grabed some ones skate board and managed to move around behind Jimmy. Grim had only intened to knock Jimmy out before he could hurt or kill to many more kids. Grim swung the skate board and an edge of the skate board connected with Jimmy’s right temple. The blow hit just the right spot with enough power behind it to drop Jimmy and cause massive internal bleeding. Jimmy died ten minutes later his body twitching the entire time. Grim has a mixed bag of feelings about what he did. He feels guilty that he did not stand up for Jimmy more often maybe he could have prevented Jimmy’s brake down. He feels guilty that he swung so hard he wanted to stop Jimmy not kill him. Jimmy’s face still hunts Grim’s nightmears every now and then. He feels bad that he did not react faster and could not save more kids. Lastly he feels a small measure of pride that he was able to be clear minded enough to react at all and save those he did.
Question 19) Your character is a born leader. Give a very brief example of a time when you were forced to lead and succeeded.

The troop was on a 18 mile day hike when they were about 8 miles into the hike their troop leader Mr. Kensea took a nasty tumble and broke his left ankle and right knee. Mr. Kensea was out cold and the troop was in a state of panic. Grim was able to get the troop focused and pulled together. They made a makeshift stretcher to cary Mr. Kense and Grim lead them back to bace camp. In camp they set Mr. Kensea’s legs and drove to the nearest hospital. With out Grims quick thinking and leadership ability Mr. Kensea mite not have made it out of the wilderness alive.
