Johan originally lived in Germany as a pool cleaner. He came to California some time before 2009 in the hopes of continuing his trade in a richer nation, but unfortunately at this time machines made his job obsolete. He joined a large group of jobless immigrants at a desert settement that promised freedom from the tyrrannies of technology and society.
He regained consciousness in time to wander through hallways of deceased, and as he fled the base he witnessed Dr. Zanasiu and the surviving members of his team recieve the military backup.
Johan sold stolen weapons to pay for his medical bills and then, too disgraced to return to the desert settlement, traveled to the remote Hughes Island to work as a pool cleaner for the Iromish tribe.
- Johan is chronologically the first and last terrorist ever seen in the Gang of Five canon (unless Pomson counts; then she would be the last ever seen.)
