Biography[edit | edit source]
This couple lived in Deptford, London, and were the mother and father of Jim, a bicycle courier who was sent into a coma just before the Rage Virus broke out. During the outbreak, Jim's parents committed suicide in bed via drug overdose, leaving a note for Jim on the back of a photo of Jim as a child; they hoped that Jim would never wake from his coma to have to live in the post-outbreak country.
Twenty-nine days into the outbreak, Jim found his parents' corpses, which had just begun to decompose, and the photo and message they had left.
