Johann as he is now

Basic Info:

Player: Quinlan

Position: Field Medic

Demeanor: With good bedside (Fieldside?) manners, Johann manages keeps his patients' mind off of even the most grievous wounds, while working as quickly and efficiently as possible. He is reluctant to use force, though he is very apt when he needs to be.

Nature: Always looking out for others before himself (without sacrificing his liberal use of painkillers), Johnny would sacrifice himself for his friends in an instant. Blood doesn't bother him, although not being able to save a life, or intentionally taking one does. He empathizes with all forms of pain, and he doesn't like to see situations turn to combat.

Description: Average height, with the darkest hair imaginable, skewed glasses, pale skin and cobalt-blue eyes. He doesn't wear his glasses unless he's trying to attend to someone.

Specialties
  • The Bigger They Are, The Faster I Run 3.

Personal History:

Born in 1920 to a wealthy Slavic family in the Netherlands, Johann never knew hardship. He was pampered daily by attendants, and even had his own whipping boy; this continued until he was twelve, when his mother and father began to have arguments. One night, his mother woke him up, told him to pack his favorite things, and they left for the countryside. When Johann was fourteen, he woke one day to find that his mother had turned yellow; this confounded the doctors, and when his mother died six months later, his father disappeared. Left on the streets with nowhere to turn, Johann began his job search.

The next year was hell. He had to adjust to a lifestyle the complete inverse of his previous one, as well as learn how to survive in the viscous world that was Great-Depression Copenhagen. Desperate times called for desperate measures, and nothing was out of bounds in fights, leading to him earning his scars; however, he managed to adapt and overcome. Finally, he landed a job at a car wash, making decent money. He was able to save up to rent an apartment and buy a car over the course of the next few years, while working and attending high school. Voted class president in 1937 because he was the one person everyone had heard of, he utilized the telephone in his office to land himself a job as an intern at a prestigious medical facility in Denmark. This is where he began his rise to the top.

He dedicated himself to his studies of the human anatomy and all known ails and cures, and it paid off. He became president of Frederiksberg Hospital in 1953, where the Foundation picked him up three years later after hearing of his seemingly miraculous healing abilities. He keeps himself in good physical shape, and has performed many surgeries over a broad variety of cases.
