Personal History:

Niclas Schmidt was born 1924 in Berlin, Germany. He was born into a rich family and therefore had quite an easy life. His father forced him to quit school when the second world war broke out and enlist in the Waffen-SS. He was immediately promoted to SS-Oberführer due to the fact that his father was a member of the nazi party. Unlike his father Niclas despised the Nazis and everything they stood for.

Out in the field he managed to always motivate his unit to keep on fighting no matter what. Word spread through the SS and soon he was one of the most known SS-Soldiers, his motivational speeches were as famous in the SS as Hitlers were in the German public. After half a year the leaders of the SS noticed his abilities and promoted him to SS-Grüppenführer. He was quite happy about this promotion, it meant he would not have to fight as much anymore and received a quite impressive salary.

With this promotion came one year of training. He improved on his speeches and learned how to command soldiers in battle and react quickly in case of unexpected enemy contact or false intel. After he finished his training he returned to the frontline in Russia, only this time he was the one staying in the back and giving orders. To increase morale he sometimes fought alongside his troops on the frontline with his trusty Luger, which he used since he joined the SS.

In 1945, when Niclas noticed that there is no way Germany can still win this war, he flew from Germany to America without his family, as they were still believing in Hitler, to start a new life there. He was extremely lucky he hasn't been caught on the way, but he still carried his old guns with him just in case somebody would find out who he really was. He took his uniform with him to remind himself of all the horrible things he has done, or forced others to do, and to keep him from making the mistakes from the past again.

His life in America wasn't as nice as he wished it would be. Without a job, money or home he had to take on a variety of side jobs to get by. He never heard of his parents again and it took him a while to get over his grief but in the end he got used to his new life until one day he got a letter from something called "The Foundation". He was shocked to see that they knew every little detail about him, they appearently were in need of qualified military personel and wanted to recruit him. He needed some time to consider the offer. In the end he accepted the offer and made his way to to the meeting point mentioned in the letter.

Miscellaneous:

Schmidt is conspicious about strangers. He only acts so selfish and cold-hearted on the outside because he learned in war that his soldiers needed someone to look up to, someone they want to be like. In his heart Schmidt is a rather friendly person, he would never leave a comrade behind no matter what.
