Conrad, a former Police officer was one of the few survivors in the Red Zone. However, he came across Ami Levin, a young boy who believed that God was punishing them for their misdeeds and Marcie, an art student. Conrad did not dare approach Blackwatch as he had witnessed the fate of those who had surrendered.
Conrad took his chance to escape when Blackwatch was busy killing the infected. He led Marcie and Ami to a Blackwatch base hoping to commandeer one of the helicopters. The trio managed to get inside one of Blackwatch's helicopters by hiding themselves inside a cargo crate. Conrad tried to force the pilot to fly them out of New York, however, the fight between them resulted with a crash in the Yellow Zone.

Eventually, Conrad came in contact with a group of resistance led by Athena in the Yellow Zone. The resistance revealed that the zone was an experimental field for Gentek and Blackwatch. Disregarding Athena's advice to stay hidden, Conrad attempts to infiltrate one of Blackwatch's Helipads in the vicinity.
He threatened one of the Gentek workers and commandeers his vehicle. Conrad and Marcie dressed themselves with the hazmat suits and pretend to escort Ami as their prisoner. Eventually they were brought to one of Gentek's facilities in the Green Zone and Conrad was confronted by Lt. Clint Riley. Conrad tried to justify the murders he had committed in the Red Zone. He explained that he wanted to get out of town to meet his wife along with Ami and Marcie and was forced to kill the soldiers since he had seen what Blackwatch was doing to any survivor of the Red Zone.
Riley agreed to let Conrad see his wife, if he would work for Blackwatch. In his desperation to be reunited with his wife, Conrad agreed to work for them. However, Madeline Stevens, Conrad's wife, had died after returning to the city early after visiting her family. Unbeknownst to him, Riley kept this information from Conrad. Marcie, Conrad, and Ami were now test subjects for an experiment designated, "Orion".
