Background & History:

Growing up:
Born in the Netherlands 1894 his family immigrated to the United States in 1901. Growing up in rural areas Waaler learned to hunt at a very young age to help put meat on the table. He taught himself to read and because of that the Family immigrated so that the children could get a better education and take advantage of the open opportunities America had. The family DRIFTED around the U.S. Dad eventually became a mechanic with all the new fangled technology: Steam tractors, Trains, Planes and Automobiles. Waaler learned the basics from his dad.

The Great War:
Waaler was part of the second wave of draftees. After Pershing’s basic training (Path of Con, Cross-trained Soldier) he volunteered as an Ambulance Field Service Driver. When He got to France he was assigned as an ambulance driver to the 69th Infantry Regiment. This is where he first met D’avin Hicks and got the nick name ‘Dutch’, being the first Dutch person in the formerly all Irish regiment from New York. D’avin ‘Loaned’ a ‘lucky’ trinket to the ambulance driver. They became friends and D’aven hasn’t asked for his trinket back. Dutch was wounded several times, both from artillery fragments and machine gun fire while pulling soldiers out of the line of fire and while driving the wounded back to the field hospitals.

Second Somme:
The Somme Defensive from 21 March – 6 April 1918
During this battle the desperate German high Command used a powerful experimental hallucinogenic and psycho-active gas that was odorless and colorless. The gas initially wreaked havoc on the allied forces but the gas appeared to drift back over the German lines and had the same effect on them. unit cohesion was lost on both sides with many cases of friendly fire.

referred to as “Second Somme” by the survivors of both sides.
There was no gas. German necromancers raised zombies and used them as shock troops in their offensive. Unfortunately, they lost control and released a zombie plague instead and the zombies ravaged both sides. By the end both sides were working together… living versus the undead. Several men were decorated posthumously for strapping on bunker busters and charging the hordes after they were bitten.

General Pershing sent in the 92nd, Which included the 69th Fighting Irish, to deal with the problem. Most where just regular G.I.s, like Dutch, but Pershing knew where the HUNTERS where and when to send them in.

Post Great War
Someday it will be called PTSD, but today it is just ‘Shell-Shocked’. After the war Dutch had trouble adjusting to civilian life and then both of his parents died in 1919 during the Spanish Influenza Pandemic of 1918 D’avin and the brand new Veterans Bureau helped Dutch recover and get into medical school. He graduated Cum Laud. Through the years D’avin and Dutch have stayed in touch. Going DEER hunting or occasionally when Dutch has had to patch up D’avin.

(5 Aug 192?)
I was headed up to D’avin’s cabin to do some Deer hunting with him. Upon arriving at D’avin’s I found a delivery truck with 3 people that said D’avin had invited them to go fishing on the lake. A couple of minutes later a man walked up the drive and said he was hoping D’avin could help him out with a flat tire and an investigation into a missing persons case he was working on.

Going onto the porch we found blood and the front door ajar. When we went inside the place had been in a fight and there wasn’t any sign of D’avin. Then we found the severed hand, possible chewed off postmortem, that we thought might be D’avin’s.

While we where inside two trucks full of people pulled up outside. They where very aggressive about what we where doing at the cabin and when we said we where friends of D’avin’s they smiled and said “Good, maybe you can tell us where to find his family so we can return the favor of hunting us by hunting his family.” Or words to that effect.

Then a couple of them started to change… into bipedal Bears?!?! They advanced onto the porch with clear intent to hurt us while others flipped my wagoneer over and the delivery truck on it’s side. We managed to get into the cabin and bolt the door. We then furiously locked the kitchen door and looked for weapons.

I attempted to defuse the situation multiple times before and after the use of deadly force. They were having none of it.

More to come when I have time
