Israel is described as a recently-recovered alcoholic who's struggling to make ends meet for his family. Having received no support from friends and family, Israel turned to alcohol to make the stress of working long hours for low pay more bearable. This, however, jeopardized his relationship with his family, who all became affected by his drinking. Although he is recovering after receiving aid from an NGO, the aftereffects of his addiction continue to resonate with his family.
Israel has few skills and a poor career record, having struggled to find and retain jobs. He has the knowledge aspiration and frequently wants to improve his skills. He does not have any talent badges, making him an unworthy candidate for most businesses. Combined with his low stature and history of addiction, few employers are willing to hire Israel, further worsening his situation.
Israel maintains a fragile relationship with his family, and frequently quarrels with his wife. He is unemployed and desperately looking for work.
