Player Name

Halvors

Name

Sverre Nystrom

Concept

Mild-mannered academic turned political activist turned traumatized intelligence operative.

Aspects

I was so white as snow once: Sverre has seen a close friend being tortured to death. He's kinda fucked up deep inside, and can become cold, calculating, and utterly cruel when placed in stressful situations.
Slavic Shadow: Sverre is used to keeping a low profile, especially in the eastern bloc. He knows how to get around there- he speaks many of the languages, knows how to find certain types of people, and how to avoid attracting unwanted attention. Due to past experience however, Sverre has shown signs of paranoia. As such, he has expressed extreme reluctance to return there and seems overly suspicious of anything he thinks could be connected back to certain groups.
I see you noticed my eyes: Sverre's mismatched eyes are just spooky, and the more you look the more you realize that Sverre is seriously messed up inside. He knows this and often uses it to his advantage.

Equipment

-A gas mask. (Transferred from Randolph)

Possessions

-An old Luger pistol. It was his great-grandfathers. It still shoots fine. It's threaded to accept a silencer, which is an after-production modification.
-A Kar-98 bayonet. His grandfathers. Weatherbeaten but still razor sharp. There's a conspicuous indent on the wooden grip. The bayonet lug has been milled off, in order to make it a more streamlined and effective combat knife.
-a burner phone
-Lowa hiking boots
-A thick leather jacket. It was probably a private purchase by some Soviet official with a thick wallet. It's a reddish brown, durable, with four small front pockets. Shoulder boards have been sewn on at some point, but were later removed- and then replaced with much more subtle green ones. It's got a pistol pocket over the left breast which can be easily accessed in a hurry.
-Sturmgewehr 44, with five magazines and a 3-mag canvas pouch. He's got small piles of handloaded ammo in his room. It also now has a Krummlauf accesory, which usually stays in his room.
-Two laptops, both heavily encrypted, even though neither has much of interest.
-An assortment of files and personal notes, written in either czech or norwegian, locked in a file cabinet.

When on Ops, he brings:
-Four ounces of gold, each in a small 1 ounce block. Because you never know when you have to bribe someone, or barter something.
-A small thing of medications, for when his PTSD starts to get… out of hand. It hasn't yet, but he wants to be sure.
