Born in Sao Paulo, Floyd Hernandes was the son of a renowned surgeon and her husband, a surgical technician. Floyd lost his mother during the Scourge and for years planned on following her footsteps by going to medical school. However, Floyd’s father pressed his son to be sure he was pursuing his education for the right reasons. With some embarrassment, Floyd revealed to his father that he’d had an interest in butchering. After convincing his father that he was indeed serious about his ambition, Paul Hernandes helped his son find a job in a butcher shop for a year. Twelve months later, Floyd was certain he’d found the right profession. His father agreed to help Floyd start a shop in Sao Paulo using some of the money inherited from his mother’s death.
Two months after opening his doors for business, while staying late to complete shipping orders, a masked man entered the shop through the back and nearly strangled Floyd to death. The masked man stole all the meat and equipment from Floyd’s store. After a five-day recovery in the hospital, Floyd was released. The first thing he did on his release was permanently close his shop. Two weeks later he sold his premises and relocated to Rio, where crime rates were lower and neighborhoods safer. The first customer to walk through his doors in Rio was a woman named Karéna. They married nine months later.
Floyd never attained the level of wealth his father and mother enjoyed from their professions in the medical field, but his business stayed steady. He stood to inherit almost two million dollars upon his father’s death, which he planned to use to renovate his butcher shop, his home, and then put the rest away for retirement. Unfortunately, those dreams ended on March 16, 2086 when a woman calling herself the Queen broke into the home where the Hernandes family was staying in Sao Paulo. He watched in horror as the woman slaughtered his children like a butcher. His last thoughts were directed toward his wife, hoping she would stay strong and keep Samuel’s location a secret.
