Siegmund Kötz

Basic Info:

Image Unavailable
Kötz, Field Exams, January 1959

Player: Aphex_

Position: Security / Pointman

Demeanor: Siegmund is fairly laid back while not on the job, and enjoys cracking jokes and generally trying to lighten the atmosphere around him. His wit is the sharpest thing he has next to his skills from the Bundesgrenzschutz.

Nature: Kötz presents his natural self- fairly outgoing and easy to be around. He does have his own demons, of course, but he considers that fight to be his own.

Description: At first glance, Kötz is a beast of a man, standing at 6' tall and weighing in at slightly over 200 lbs of mostly muscle. His hair is black, and cut short but still fairly scruffy by the standards of the Foundation. His eyes are a very dark shade of brown, and can possibly be mistaken for black in the right light.

  • Diffuse the Situation: 4. Siegmund's specialty outside of playing pointman happens to be in speaking- it lends itself well to quite a few tense situations. (+4 PERS bonus during negotiations with armed and potentially hostile NPCs.)
  • Run and Gun: 3. After having bullets whiz past your head for long enough, you eventually build up the desperation to kick your ass into gear and just run. (+3 AGI while under sustained fire (e.g. a two turn combat round))
  • I Am Your Shield: 5. Kötz's willingness to put his teammates' lives in higher priority than that of his own becomes particularly handy when he charges to cover them with his body and tower-style ballistic shield. (+5 to PDEF, -4 to AGI while defending for an ally. Only functions on one ally that must be 3 meters (or less) away. (Balanced to make sure the spec cannot be used to cover for every single ally on a run or event.))

Personal History:

Siegmund Thomas Kötz was born to young parents in ██████, Germany in April of 1933. Having been far too young, Kötz did not ever see the battlefield, as the War had ended by his eleventh birthday. His father, however, did- and thankfully lived to tell the tale.

After coming of age, Siegmund enrolled in the Landespolizei academy in order to follow in the footsteps of his father, a former policeman- he passed with flying colors, and was sent to Linz on assignment. In the following years with the Landespolizei, Siegmund proved himself to be quite the able combatant following a string of violent riots in Linz, which earned him a promotion to the Bundesgrenzschutz- the Federal Border Guard- at the age of 20.

Only five months into his new role, Kötz found himself staring down a group of smugglers heading to the East- they were carrying what appeared to be something out of a science fiction novel, all glowing and metal. Whatever it happened to be, Siegmund would be damned to let them pass- he eventually subdued the lot of them and called the object in to his superiors, the news of which eventually reached the higher ranks of the U.S. Army. After being relieved of duty in the following weeks, Kötz was eventually approached by Foundation recruiters and offered a job in Italy. He officially joined PSI-7 in February of 1959 after working as Site-77 staff for a brief period.
