Former career/job: Carl used to work in an auto-repair shop
Personality: Can get quite bad tempered, but the anger is always gone just as suddenly as it came. Carl doesn't say much, but appreciates dirty jokes. He can be reluctant to helping people if he hasn't got anything to gain from it, but usually end up doing it anyway, swearing with every breath. Carl is wary of women and often end up pushing them away from himself, even though deep down he is very lonely.
Since the end of society, Carl has heard all sorts of stories and explanations regarding the epidemic. Some say it's the reckoning, that the kingdom of heaven coming real soon. Others have told him there are departments of the government left out there, still fighting the good fight, trying to develope a vaccine. Carl himself is a non-believer. He knows what he sees is real and stops right there. He has never believed in any god, conspiracy or tall tale anybody has told him, ever. What he knows for sure is this: the world has gone to hell. But he has no intention of going down with it.
Strengths: Carl used to hunt a lot before the outbreak, lending him the skills needed to survive in the wild. He also owns a knife and a hunting rifle, although he only has five bullets left.
Weaknesses: His temperament and alcoholism often renders him friendless. He always seems to get into fights where he gets beat up.
Preferred weapon: His rifle, if not as a gun then as a club instead.
History: Carl came to the states when he was a teenager. Before that he'd lived in northern Sweden. His parents got divorced, mainly because Carls father was a swine who beat his mother, and so Carl and his mother went to America. At first Carl hated everything, hated being different and in a different world. But eventually he settled in, learned to speak english properly, and got himself a job that he liked. And so just as quickly as things had started to become really swell, people started dying in some freak disease and rose again as zombies. He's lost everybody and everything to the epidemic, living now only for tomorrow.
