On this page, editors of 1983DD, after careful consideration, leave personal biographies of themselves and/or loved ones who would have survived Doomsday. In the spirit of the timeline, the biographies should seek to place them where they would be today. It is also proper to put a memorial biography of those loved ones who survived but have since died in our timeline.

Amanda Anderson 41 Amanda was driving to pick up her father, a project manager at the Owyhee Dam, when Doomsday struck. Seeing the mushroom cloud above Boise's city centre and hearing about Mountain Home on the radio, they got back to their house in Parma, where they had been living for the past few months. She eventually got a job as an intelligence analyst for the loose confederation of Malheur County and some surrounding locales, where she met her future husband Scott at a briefing. They married in 1993, and she has had three children with him (see below). She is currently serving as mayor of Nyssa.
Matthew Anderson 14 Born and raised in Cascadia to the chief of Nyssa's militia and a minor Cascadian politician, Matt dreams of helping to reunite the USA. However, his short term goals are to keep his math grades up and getting Mom to let him buy that CZ-75 he's been staring at hungrily through the plate glass of the pawn shop window.
Scott Anderson 44 Scott was driving home from Lewis and Clark College in Portland, OR, when Doomsday struck (he was in the general vicinity of Bend). Quickly making it to his parents' house in Nyssa, OR, he and his high school buddies (plus the sheriff) quickly established order over the town. He rose to become commander of the militia. After the formation of Cascadia in 2000, he became commander of the riverine battalion of Cascadia's military, and established the Marine company attached to the unit. He currently owns a sports bar in Ontario, and serves as an elder at Nyssa Presbyterian Church. He has had three children with his wife Amanda: Matthew (aged 14), Craig (aged 11), and Elisabeth (aged 6).

The couple were stranded in what soon became the Long Island survivor state, and settled in Montauk, where they married later that year. Cohen found work as a tailor, and also became a minor local politician. He was present at the formation of the Outer Lands Association, as one of the representatives for Long Island. Recently he has expressed some interest in running for a higher political office. Cohen and his wife have a daughter, Alice (born 1984), and a son, Levi (born 1986).
Levi Cohen 24 Levi was born a few years after Doomsday, in the survivor state of Long Island. He grew up in Montauk, which had become a seedy refugee town, hearing tales of the pre-Doomsday world. After a few years of alternating between work as a tailor and work in the local Coast Guard, he has shown some interest in following in his father's footsteps and entering into politics.

Laura Henry 30 Both parents and the three year old Laura survived by taking shelter in the ICI Anhydrite mines (where her mother worked as a lab assistant) under the town of Billingham in a pre-existing nuclear bomb shelter. After coming out of the mines, Laura's father helped run his older brothers farm in the area around south of Guisborough. Laura is currently the assistant forester in the 750 acre Guisborough Forest, managing the woodland for building materials for the Kingdom of Cleveland.
Lisa MacDonald 52 Originally from Long Island, Lisa had recently moved to Strathroy to live at her beloved grandmother's farm.
