JD was a legacy and came up through the ranks of the MC, doing his father proud. The club asked him to perform a hit which he did without question. Unfortunately the murder was pinned on him as one of the guys in the club was actually a deep cover ATF agent. Half of the club went to prison and JD was no exception. After five years in, the outbreak started and at first the prison officials held fast, insisting that the military would pull through. When it became clear that this was the end the guards started abandoning the prison. A few hold outs made a deal with some of the prisoners, letting them go in exchange for helping them get out of the infected area.
It worked, and the cons and their CO's fought their way out of the prison and into the country side where they all went their separate ways. JD traveled with the MC, their bikes being perfect for getting around. The choppers didn't burn as much gas as cars or trucks, could go nearly any where...They would only stop to scavenge gas and beer, moving from place to place and avoiding walkers as much as possible. Every once in a while they'd get drunk enough to go on a hunt, killing zombies entirely for sport.
It was this activity that would eventually bite them in the ass.
One night they were out on a hunt and found a mall that was absolutely crawling with walkers. The entire club went in and started slaughtering the zombies and having a great time. All seemed well until they started taking sniper fire. It turned out there were people living in the mall who had been fending off the zombies as best they could and it seemed that they were not welcoming JD or his friends. The three way fight meant that the zombies ultimately started to win. JD barely go out with his life. Suddenly alone he had to get real about how he was surviving and had to put aside the drinking and the pointless hunts. Sticking to outlying areas, playing it safe, JD continued to make his way around, not going any where in particular.
Then one day while scavenging for food, he heard a noise. Pulling his gun he checked into the source of the noise and found a woman he immediately recognized. She'd been on CNN or MSNBC or one of those stupid channels. A talking head who'd covered all the big stories, often finding herself in the field reporting while things went on behind her. JD wasn't impressed and quickly went back to scavenging. Turns out she had found herself all alone and grossly under prepared. Swallowing her pride she asks for his help which he promptly responds in the resoundingly negative.
And that's when the walkers find them. They would escape together and he would begrudgingly take her in, helping her get by. They can't stand each other but how many times can some one save your life before feelings start to blossom?So the general idea is that while she's been to war zones and to some of the biggest natural disasters of the last five years but she was never prepared for this. She was sent into the field with protection. Could be police or military and a camera man but they were all killed pretty quickly trying to keep her safe. The camera man straight up abandoned her and she's been hiding out in a little 7-11 since. Once they're thrust together the idea is that a relationship blossoms as he actually takes pretty good care of her, even if he does give her a mountain of shit for it.
