Joe’s Character Background You are originally from Germany, but your childhood memories of the Fatherland are not happy ones. You see, you are descended from a secret race which wrestled the secrets of the Elder gods from the Apemen of the Leng Plateau before the dawn of civilization. Naturally, Adolph Hitler and his entire Nazi band wanted these secrets. So, the Nazis hunted your people like animals. You were born in a criminal safehouse. Throughout your childhood you fled across Europe. You learned early on how to set traps and make tricks to delay or capture a Nazi soldier. Stealth was of the utmost importance. “oieruwe’ieruoiw ioxcereyu’kwee kjajsleu’jdkf skfj’skdjf’wkejr” your grandfather used to say which in the ancient Ape-speech means “the unseen banana goes unplucked!” You did have one faithful, constant companion as a child though, and that was your pet wallaby. Wally was a bit unusual for not only are wallabies rare in Germany but magenta wallabies are rarer still. Wally is very intelligent and able to communicate ideas to you and vice versa (like Lassie!) Your father had two books handed down from generation to generation; they were Volume V of the Seven Cryptical Books of Hsan and People of the Monolith. Many an idle hour were spent on your father’s knee as he gibbered on about the Great Old One’s or the horrific sacrifices requried when the stars were right to release the waiting minions; yes, those were the days! Your training came in handy one day when you were able to use a trap to stop a Nazi from grabbing a nine year old Jewish boy. His father was a surgeon, and although he could not pay you in cash or belongings (he was forbidden by the Reich to practice his trade), he more than made up for it by showing you a little of the art of surgery. Eventually it proved too much for your father; whether it was the stress of constant hiding, the strain of raising a family on the lam in war torn Europe or the huge winged horrors which sailed down to carry him away, you’ll never know, but shortly thereafter you and your mother fled to the USA. Here you have made your fortune acting in the “best” of movies. The current two shootings will look great in your resume`.
