|Agent Emmerich, 1957|
Position: Site Security / Combat
Demeanor: Generally stoic when he's not angry. Cares about a select group of people, and god help you if you aren't one of them.
Nature: If you can get him talking, he's good to chat with on occasion. He cares very deeply about people. There is some leftover guilt from the war, but a lot of it has been put behind him.
Description: Hans was considered to be the ideal German soldier, standing around 177cm tall and 76kg in weight, and standard Aryan features. Fairly muscular, a gentle not-so-giant, so to say. His hair is darkening as of recent.

- When I Was a Boy: 5. Early experience with weaponry has given Hans the time to master a variety of arms. If you can put a name to it, he probably knows it inside and out. (RNG/MLE Bonus. Usable per 3 rolls during sustained combat, cannot be used for the initial roll. [e.g. b, a, b, b, b, a, etc; a in this case being active bonus])
- Sturmtruppe: 4. Top tier of the top tier of the day, Hans was considered a shining example of the Reich's military prowess. Fearless in combat, intimidating, and above all, highly dangerous. (INTM during or prior to a combat roll. Any enemy affected rolls MDEF to oppose. The resulting debuff is up to GM fiat.)

Born on November 11th, 1927 to ████ and ███████████ Emmerich of Munich, Hans spent his schooling as what can be considered a B average student. He was carefree as both a student and a child, up until his induction into the Hitler Junge; shortly after joining the Hitler Junge in 1942, he would later run off and join the military a year later, at the age of 16.
After the end of basic training with the Wehrmacht, Hans was immediately assigned to the Polish front to keep the Third Reich's hold on what they had left of the country. During the occupation, resistance was met both strongly and often, and Hans' unit had the unfortunate experience of being on the receiving end of a mortar shelling. Only three of Hans' unit of fifteen survived, with Hans receiving the least amount of injury. Hans believed it to either be a miracle, or perhaps a terrible curse, that he would be one of the few to live.
Due to the injuries sustained, he was deemed unfit for further duty and sent back to his home town, Munich. Unfortunately, the town now held nothing for him, as his parents had left for Düsseldorf and had completely lost contact.
Now at an extreme disadvantage due to his deafness, Hans would pick up odd jobs around the outskirts of the town, willing to do just about anything to draw income. During his time in Munich, Hans picked up on a new tool while working for a fellow Deaf employer: DGS (of which he still has the manual, as payment for his work.). With his new-found ability to communicate more fluently, Hans began to work better jobs with better pay, eventually saving enough money to finally leave the war-torn country of his upbringing in 1946. He set his sight toward America, as their recent success in the War had put the country's morale and economy on an upturn.
Shortly after 1947, Hans finally immigrated to the United States, meeting a variety of challenges along the way. Being deaf was bad enough, but being German, especially now that the Reich had fallen, was far worse. Discrimination was rampant, and practically no one would hire the former child soldier; as a last ditch effort, Hans returned to his roots, taking odd jobs that others would never dream of doing, an experience he was still familiar with.
In a twist of the fates, Hans was noticed and promptly recruited by the Foundation in the middle of 1953 for a new, all-deaf task force (Nu-12) formed to contain sound-based anomalies. He has recently been transferred to Psi-7 in the wake of Nu-12's dissolution.
