Jhessail is far from friendly. :P She's extremely intelligent, amicable, and witty, but friendly's the last word I'd use to describe her.

Oh. I honestly didn't read that part of his post. I guess I'll send it to him then.

And that's hardly a proper character draft. Just spitballing ideas. That's what this stage is for isn't it?

So far, the idea for my character is to have a pretty well-rounded and experienced soldier type. His combat role would be as an assault trooper or support gunner. But as for why he should be able to speak Russian, I'm having a bit of trouble thinking of feasible ways for that to be the case for someone so plainly German.
Perhaps his father was on the Eastern Front in WW1, and learned it there, teaching it to his son? Hmmm.

But the character traits are where I really need to flesh this out, I think.

His family could be relatively recent immigrants from Eastern Europe (Russia, Poland, etc.), a number of German aristocratic families had their roots in Russia and he could also be from the "Sudetenland" since it was a part of Poland/Czech Republic/Slovakia where there were German speaking natives.

Historically, the Bradenburgers tried to recruit exactly those type of people.

Quote
Rather than recruiting only those who embodied the Aryan ideal of the übermensch, Hippel scoured the Reich to find Slavs, Poles and other ethnics willing to fight for Germany. Every recruit had to be fluent in at least one foreign language. However, many recruits were fluent in several. The recruits were also schooled in the customs and traditions of their specific region. Knowing every habit and mannerism in their area of operations would enable the men to blend in and operate as effective saboteurs.

With that it mind it doesn't really seem silly to have a collection of such "rare" individuals in the squad, since those are the exact people the commanding officers would be looking for.  :D



Edit: Three characters received so far, so yay!  :)

I have der Hauptmann done as well, which makes it four.



Hoping to see some more interesting characters soon, I'll be working on adding more stuff to the proper OOC and Character repository today.  :P

No worries, I had a busy weekend as well.

I just wanted to make it clear that stuff is happening behind the scenes.  :wink:

Weber, Esko and Fritz added to the roster (the character repository).  :P



Feel free to add a nickname or preferred name in " " on your CS, so I know what to use when quickly referencing your characters (nothing to silly though, please).

I'm still trying to sort out ranks, as although Wehrmacht ranks are quite easy to find, I'm not quite sure how a SF unit should be organized.

No worries and any Manfred VonGrossenschwanzes will suffer from an amazingly vicious string of bad luck.  :wink:
