Nazi - Waffen-SS NCO, 1944
rating: 0+x

By Michele A.

Kurt Schmidt is a young man, but already a veteran of the Eastern Front. He left the university in 1941 to volunteer with the Waffen-SS; grown up in a Nazi family and in the Hitler Youth, he's thoroughly faithful to the F├╝hrer. What he saw in Russia hardened him and made him even more fanatic. He's now a SS-Oberscharf├╝hrer, one of the experienced officers and NCOs hastily added to the new 12th SS-Panzerdivision "Hitler Jugend". They are presently moving to face the enemy landings in Normandy.
Kurt's preferred weapon is his trusted MP40. He has unlearned the perfunctory bayonet training, and his preferred melee weapon is an entrenching tool with sharpened edges, which he wields as an axe (his Perk negates the penalty for an improvised weapon).
Kurt is ruthless and fanatically determined, and he can make sure his squad will be a tough nut to crack for all comers.
Kurt has black close-cropped hair, blue, sunken eyes, he's lean, and moves nervously. Height: 5'9", weight: 145 lbs., age: 24.
