Cromwell Holt

Player Name



Dr. Umar "Cromwell" Holt


Microbiologist with a hypodermic in one hand, and a gun in the other.


In Love with Microbes: Cromwell Holt likes his job, a lot. Maybe too much. He tends to be very hard to distract from something he's loves doing, but admittedly his memory banks of knowledge are useful. Sometimes.
Boiledblood: Cromwell hates racism, insults, and just general closed-minded or rudeness. He's very easy to get along with, but if he takes witness to anything unkind like that, he will counter with violence. You better hide until he calms down.
Inner Crow: Cromwell likes his "shiny things" or anything that seems interesting. Sometimes Cromwell will spend time looking for something pretty or interesting even if there is nothing to be found.

Personal History

Cromwell was born in the USA to a middle-class family Syrian family. His life was mostly uneventful, rising to graduate with honors in microbiology and immunology from a four-year University, and applied to an MD/PhD program (MD in Internal Medicine/Infectious Diseases, PhD in Microbiology/Immunology). During this time period he co-authored or authored several papers related to vaccine development and bacterial pathogenesis, which mostly went unnoticed outside the microbiology and immunology community. It would appear his life would continue to be a comfortable average, until the day before his graduation. That day, SCP-1121 escaped containment out of a nearby hidden Foundation facility and managed to cause a local outbreak, with all the victims being sent to the hospital Cromwell was inside. Cromwell and the other staff at the hospital managed to teniously contain the outbreak long enough for the Foundation to arrive, although at the cost of virtually everyone but Cromwell and a couple of doctors. The survivng medical staff were offered employment at the Foundation. Cromwell later became a researcher at Area 549, located in Quneitra, Syria/Golan Heights DMZ. His most recent activity was being loaned to Area 354. where he now resides with the "Poolboys".


  • "Cromwell" secretly suffers from survivor's guilt dating back to the breach of SCP-1121, as most of his friends died during that outbreak.
  • "Cromwell" carries pictures of several unnamed persons on himself.
  • Cromwell is between 5'10'' and 5'11'', has green eyes, and light brown hair.
  • "Cromwell" learned how to shoot during Operation Gazelle, a Syrian-Foundation series of training and wargames. All Area 549 personel were to be taught how to fire a gun during that operation.
  • Crom is now suffering from a slight phobia of roses due to a bad experience with being exposed to LSD pollen while on an op.
  • During the utter destruction of the site, he's now got a concussion, broken teeth, a few cracked ribs, his legs are broken, his left hand is broken, he has a broken nose, and finally, his neck is broken and in a brace. He was on the third floor when a giant tenticle destroyed that floor and threw him straight into the nearby woods.
