“How does my latest invention work, you ask? I’m not sure. Here, take it!”
Johannes is too humble and focused to admit it, but he is one of the smartest engineer of these dark times. His native tongue is science. With the King’s benevolent sponsorship, his inventions made many peoples’ lives easier. He made some enemies, too: the Church saw the Devil’s influence in his work. An embarrassing statement, especially considering Johannes can arrange mundane items into weapons and wonders without anyone, including himself, to give a proper explanation.
As the royal army and the King himself were defeated by zombies, the inventor left his former life behind and became a survivor. Without anyone to look at his work as suspicious, Johannes can now use his abilities to their fullest, and stands as a crucial asset to the whole community.
