Secondary Occupation (optional):
Big. Really big. Standing at over 6 foot tall and seemingly made from the rock of his homeland, Holger's most distinguishing characteristic is his vibrant red hair and beard, both kept long and natural. Beneath all of that you will see wild green eyes and and a wild man's grin. He dresses simply, but well; his childhood of hardships have given him a taste for the finer things.
Holger uses his size and wild appearance to intimidate those he meets, but will warm quickly to you if you prove you're not an imminent threat. He is boastful, crass, fun-loving, and perhaps a tad dim in the way an uneducated man from a backwater planet is.
A hard man to truly know, Holger has had a difficult life. He holds the memories of his past dear, but it has turned him into a man who will push people away with brusqueness and intimidation, and his strange sense of humor many find unsavory. He strongly wishes for a family of his own, and can be perhaps over eager with those of the opposite sex, but is mostly harmless in that regard and his zeal is most likely an overcompensation.

Born in a large family, Holger learned from an early age that life and the 'verse are both difficult and one must find joy where they can. He went to work at a young age in a rock quarry to help support his family, earning a minimum wage for back breaking labor.
When the Unification War broke out, he and some of his brothers and sisters enlisted against the wishes of their parents. But they saw a chance for glory and adventure. What they found was misery and defeat.
The siblings were known as The Nords on the battlefield, using their ancient Nordic blood rage they would charge out of the trenches with bare chests and warpaint, causing a distraction for their waiting allies. While it never quite provided for the sort of victory they would hope, it did give them a reputation as crazy and fearless.
After Unification, and a brief stint in a POW Camp, Holger, like most veterans, found the idea of going home impossible. He was no longer the man he was before he left. So he began using the skills he had learned on the battlefield as a way to make ends meet and soon it became more of a calling.
In 2515, however, he and his brothers who had escaped the hell of both their home world and the War, met up for a sort of reunion on Londinium. After a few rounds of drinks, things quickly got out of hand. While no one will admit that they started the fight, Holger would admit that he's the one who started the fire. Either way, it ended up with the bar burned out from the inside, the light beating of an Londinium Police Officer and theft of his vehicle, and eventual arrest of the whole clan.
In 2516, they did it again.
In 2517, the police were waiting and suffice it to say the Heyerdahls are no longer welcome on Londinium.
Skills and Strengths:
Did we mention that Holger is big? Because he is. His vibrant Nordic blood, size, and temperment make him ideal for the intimidating guy you don't want to mess with. His military training makes him all the more dangerous. He also knows his way around heavy machinery and a pickaxe from his years in the quarry as a laborer. This leaves him qualified to do a bit of (non-refined, A to B type) piloting, some light mechanicking, and digging a really big hole by hand.
Holger is not well educated, and even if he had been afforded the chance, let's be honest and admit that he wouldn't have done well. Higher learning never interested him and he doesn't feel as though he missed out. He is brash, quick to anger, and easy to trick. His size often gets in his way, and when he can't solve a problem with guns or fists, he is often at a loss for what to do next. Though he has developed a taste for the finer things in life having left his old life behind, he lacks the actual knowledge and sophistication to do those things properly. So things that might otherwise be considered tacky or garish are prized possessions for him.

Aside from his general travel pack containing clothes and necessities, Holger, despite being a former soldier and current mercenary, isn't too particular about the weapons he uses and wouldn't consider himself partial to any, nor does he collect them. He currently carries a
LaRue Optimized Battle Rifle
with a 16 inch barrell and a magpul customized stock. The stock was, of course, custom made for the guy Holger took it off of. He of course has several magazines of ammunition and a few, smaller hand guns.
