|Character of INFRA|
Xeander Berg was a Belgian scientist and co-owner of the Bergmann Group.
Biography[edit | edit source]
Before he joined Eric's Kleinmann's foundation, he had a small research and development research facility for mining engineering in Brussel. He met Kleinmann in an International Exposition in Brussels and they shared the same ideas about constructions and buildings. From that day on, the Bergmann Group was born.
SNW[edit | edit source]
After S.N.W was created, Xeander Berg was secretly hired to be the lead scientist for nuclear weapon development in the S.N.W bunker, under the belief the weapons would be used for good.
Berg disappeared from the public eye, creating problems for the Bergmann Group. As the lead scientist, he was told that he couldn't leave the bunker or use any phones, and Berg realized he was actually a prisoner. He attempted to call Eric Kleinmann, after distracting guards at the bunker, but dialed a phone at Stalburg Steel's offices instead, and left a voicemail.
Escape[edit | edit source]
Berg eventually managed to escape the bunker via the ventilation shafts, and came into contact with Jeff Walter, who was in hiding and looking for a way to expose S.N.W. Walter and Berg managed to compile condemning evidence against S.N.W, and Walter began to look for a way to publicize it. At some unknown point, Berg began to show symptoms of S.M.V., which made him terribly ill.
Decline[edit | edit source]
Walter arranged a suitable shelter for him at Castle Rock Island, where he would commit himself to search for a cure for the disease. In a journal Berg wrote, he chronicled his stages through the S.M.V infection. He first found a mushroom growing on his hand, and more began to grow on his body.
He experimented and did test green and orange mushrooms, but was unable to find anything conclusive. Berg began to lose his memory, and was on the verge of a breakthrough, but succumbed to the virus while writing his last log, presumably dying or becoming vegetative.
Relationships[edit | edit source]
Eric Kleinmann[edit | edit source]
Kleinmann was Berg's business partner and close friend. They founded the Bergmann Group together and supported each others investments. When he was held in the S.N.W bunker, Berg wrote many letters that would never get sent to Kleinmann, as well as a voicemail. Both men were concerned for each other's well being, as Berg noted that it would be "too much" for Eric if he saw him infected with S.M.V, a sentiment that would prove to be correct.
Jeff Walter[edit | edit source]
Jeff Walter was Berg's ally in attempting to expose S.N.W. Walter's personal connections allowed him to provide Berg with a secluded shelter when he began to show symptoms of S.M.V, and he maintained correspondence with Berg to inform him of how their plan was progressing, as well as asking if Eric Kleinmann could help them.
Quotes[edit | edit source]
Voicemail in Tower[edit | edit source]
Kleinmann? Kleinmann, can you hear me? I'm not sure if you've gotten any of my letters, I'm trying to escape today. They don't let anyone use these phones, but I managed to distract them. Kleinmann? Are you there?
Projector Introduction in Bunker[edit | edit source]
Hello. My name is Xeander Berg, and I'm the leader of the S.N.W scientist team B2. As you may already know, this project is very important for the future of our country. We are between two major alliances, and we cannot trust either of them. If there's going to be another war, we won't last long. That's why you are here today. We are going to guarantee a safe future for our children, and everyone who lives in this country. Next, I'm going to tell you a bit about this underground complex and what we're doing here. The scientist team lives in the accomodation wing next to the laboratory. The door code is 2077.
