Finally, he carries a restored Ka Bar knife his uncle used in the Korean War.
Personality: Generally friendly and easy going outside of a combat situation. When fighting, he is professional, clever, and a bit reckless at times.
History: Served in the Marine Corps for two tours of duty in Afghanistan. Participated in the opening battles of Operation Enduring Freedom and quickly distinguished himself as a master at close quarters combat, clearing houses and tunnels with little more than his knife and sidearm on a few occasions. He was offered promotions multiple times but declined them so that he could stay with his current squad, with whom he had grown extremely close. This earned him the nickname "Rivate" among many of his comrades.
After his service in the Marines, he returned to the states and settled down in the small town of Cedar City, Utah. He married his high school sweetheart and opened a successful gun shop in town. There, he recieved his Colt 1911 as a birthday gift from his wife. That gun would go through many customizations and was eventually named after his wife. Everything seemed to be looking up for them. They had a nice house, a pair of healthy baby boys (twins), and a successful business.
All of that changed one winters night when a zombie outbreak hit the small town. Serrano's house was attacked by a large horde of zombies. During the attack, his wife was bitten and his two children were devoured. His wife later turned and he was forced to put her down with the handgun bearing her own name. He was able to escape through a second-story window, sustaining lacerations to the face in the process. After a brutal fight, he made his way to the garage where he gained access to his motorcycle and was able to escape the ruined town. An FVZA attachment found him and invited him to join. He readily accepted.
Strengths: Is a master of close quarters combat especially when using a knife. Has proficiency in the use of all weapons used by Marine infantry as a result of his combat experience. Can ride motorcycles off-road with great skill. Is very loyal and faithful to his friends. Has excellent character judgement and can smell BS a mile away. It should also be noted that he is extremely lucky, even though it is not a true skill.
Weaknessess: Can be reckless at times, especially when angered. Doesn't like engaging enemies at long range, preferring to keep things up close and personal. Is extremely sensitive to any mention of his family.
Hobbies: Motocross, gunsmithing, cars, music.
Other notes: Carries his handgun as a memento as all pictures of his family were destroyed in the outbreak.
