Loche Werner

Basic Info:

Player: Knyght/PoliteCannibal

Position: Loche is a combat tested soldier and a semi-skilled medical officer specializing in grueling combat-related wounds, such as gunshot wounds, knife and bayonet wounds, explosive burns, shrapnel damage, and blunt trauma. Loche is also fairly adept as a Psychologist although he doesn't practice it as much as physical medical work.

Demeanor: Loche gives off the impression that something is always on his mind, and seems obsessively paranoid. He constantly looks over his shoulder, and will stare at others as if they'd just insulted him. He's a bit cautious and can be accusatory if particularly nervous or if he seems to feel cornered. Other than his quirks he seems to be respectful to most and tries to be kind when he's feeling up to it. Loche always speaks with a hint of a proper upbringing and politeness that can seem forced. He can come off a bit overwhelming due to this, but it gives him an air of professionalism that is hard to overlook.

Nature: Loche is an inherently nervous and paranoid person, although he can be friendly once you get past his cautious exterior. He enjoys speaking with others, and despite his worried conscious he tries to get along with his comrades to the best of his ability.

Description: Loche is of German heritage. He has a tall but somewhat thin frame, a lightweight build. He has dirty blonde hair and light blue eyes, bordering on gray. He reaches a tall height of around 6'5" when not slouching, although he tends to do so, and can seem shorter.

Personal History:

Loche was born in 1925 in Berlin, Germany. Born to a semi-wealthy family, Loche had a very proper upbringing and received both good schooling and tutoring. He attended school again in Berlin, alongside his small family of 4, his mother, father and older brother. When war broke out in 1939, both his brother and father set off to war, leaving Loche at home with his mother, who was at the time very ill. In the following two years, Loche began to dedicate all his time to schooling and caring to his mother, who passed away in 1941 of a fever despite best efforts to care for her.
Loche joined the German military a week after her passing, having reached the enlistment age requirement of 16 at the time. Loche quickly volunteered to become a field medic for German Infantry on the Eastern Front of WW2 fighting against Allied Forces, and found a balance between both causing and healing wounds on the field.Loche, while not too particularly keen on getting out into the fray, was exceptional at tending to the wounded and firing at a distance. Most of his days, although he'd brag about military achievement, was spent performing medical duties and tending to the sick and wounded German troops on the back lines. Loche fought in multiple large campaigns, while honing his medical skills in the field, becoming an incredibly skilled medic, enough to be formally recognized by the German Military for outstanding performance. Loche found his way higher in the ranks of the German SS through acts of leadership and both combat and medical excellence, earning him multiple awards from his superiors and the admiration of his fellow soldiers.
Loche was awake long hours, worked long days and had both pride and an unhealthy obsession in regards to his work as a medic. He witnessed horrible wounds, mangled corpses, and spent most of his days with the moans and wails of the dying ringing in his ear. Even as he was promoted to officer ranking, he kept hard at work overseeing field medical operations along the Eastern front, and his hands were always at work patching someone up or digging bullet fragments out of someone else.
After the end of World War II and the surrender of Nazi Germany, Loche quickly returned to schooling and now his work as a medical-somewhat-professional, taking up practice in his home of Berlin as both a Doctor and Psychologist. War has its lingering effects on some though.

Loche, during and after the war, became increasingly paranoid and confrontational, and his bad mental health management left him with a twitchy and jumpy disposition. Sudden gunfire panicked him, surprises were never good for his mind, and he always found himself looking over his shoulder, as if expecting someone to come rushing in behind him. Years of stressful events throughout Germany's Military campaigns left him in a constant state of nervousness and panic, always seeming to be ready to patch up another bullet ridden boy who was dragged into his medical tent… Even if he was simply at home eating dinner, the war long gone.

Loche was approached by the foundation in private, based on his exceptional war performance, and valuable medical knowledge especially in the field. With his family left torn to pieces, his father and brother not returning from war, and with no real ties to his home city other than his now poorly financed medical practice, he packed up and set off to Site-77.

Miscellaneous:

Loche has a heavy German accent when speaking in English.

Loche keeps an almost forced air of professionalism and formality. Maybe he's just a relaxed, do nothing person in a stuck up shell. He'd never admit it though.

Loche seems to have some deep seated social issues and a slight bit of awkwardness, probably from spending 17 hours a day, every day, for 4 years working on dying soldiers.

Loche specializes as a doctor, but also is trained as a psychologist.
