Agent Weiss, c. 1982

Player: Aphex_

Position: OMEGA-5 Security / Damage Control

Demeanor: While on the clock, Agent Weiss is a professional at heart, but he still keeps his humor intact where he can. Outside of work, he is often seen participating in his hobbies- art, firearms, and anything else he can get his hands on to tinker with.

Nature: Franz keeps a good portion of his true nature out for the world to see- he is a complex man and a jack-of-all-trades type of person. He knows when to work, and when to play, and keeps a fairly strict line between the two.

Description: Agent Franz Weiss is a fairly tall man, standing approximately 5'10 at 186 lbs. He appears fairly athletic, as is typical of most recent hires from military backgrounds. He keeps mostly clean shaven with a close-cut hairstyle that is greying on the sides. Weiss also has a few scars on his head from surgical operations, though they are hard to see unless he shaves his head entirely.

Specialties

  • Adrenaline Rush: 3. Some people enjoy the rush for thrill, but for Agent Weiss, the rush of adrenaline in life-threatening situations is a welcome boost. (ATH/ACRO, only available under 5 health).
  • Heart-to-Heart: 3. Part of Agent Weiss' training with the Grenzschutzgruppe 9 involved learning to use words to defuse and help situations. (PERS, active while talking to a non-hostile NPC 1-on-1 (not alone, solely addressing)).
  • Built-in Hearing Protection: 2. Sometimes, tuning the world out is as simple as flicking a switch. For Agent Weiss, this is the reality of things- he finds that it comes in handy on more than one occasion. (RES/DET vs sound based attacks, causes equal PERC debuff for 2 turns after use).

Personal History:

Agent Franz Weiss, born to ████ and ██████ Weiss of Munich, Germany in 1952. A typical rough-and-tumble child, Weiss was no stranger to a variety of activity both during his free time and during school. Agent Weiss did fairly well in academic pursuits, and maintained very similar performance in sports- particularly football. Despite all of his successes, Weiss was also a very angry boy, and would easily turn on his peers and teammates if given even the slightest reason- and that anger would quickly escalate into violence.

It wasn't until his conscription into the Bundeswehr at the eve of 1970 that he learned the hard way that rash, impulsive bursts of anger were no way to act- he very quickly cleaned up his approach to things the following year. At the end of his service in 1972, Agent Weiss took on a new role with the Bundesgrenzschutz; eventually- after a few more years of incredibly hard work and dedicated service- Agent Weiss wound up in the Grenzschutzgruppe 9 in 1975, three years after its' formation following the Munich massacre.

But, the world of the paramilitary was not yet done with Agent Weiss. Three years after his induction into the fledgling GSG9, Weiss' parents broke the news of their contacted liaison status in the Foundation after Weiss' father had a cancer scare. Following this news, Franz was quickly offered a position on the recently-formed MTF OMEGA-5.

Miscellaneous:

  • Learned some tidbits of Russian while with the Bundesgrenzschutz (This applies no bonuses in-game.); he is also fluent in German, English, and both German and American Sign Languages.
  • Keeps contact with his parents whenever possible, typically writes letters but is known to use one of the many payphones on-site.
  • Weiss is partially deaf and requires a hearing aid. It is modified into a smaller form-factor suit his everyday needs in the Foundation. He additionally has fluency in German Sign Language.
