Georgius Rothfeld

Georgius Rothfeld was born on February 27, 1792 in a small village in Austria.

Georgius joined the Austrian military forces when he was 16 years old with the aspiration of following in his father's footsteps. He had to undergo intensive training due to the high demand for new recruits caused by the ongoing Napoleonic Wars. During his training, he witnessed many of his comrades being deployed to the war. Most of them never returned.

Georgius underwent a two-year training before joining the Austrian forces in the Napoleonic Wars. He proved to be an excellent soldier and was able to rise through the military ranks. Unfortunately, during one of his missions, he sustained a major injury that resulted in a prominent scar on his forehead. Although he survived, many of his comrades did not. As a result of his experiences, Georgius suffered from mental trauma and had a nervous breakdown. He spent several months in a field hospital, where he was briefly treated by Mariëtte. During this time, Georgius felt a connection with Mariëtte, but lost contact with her when she returned to her home country.

After the war ended, Georgius embarked on a journey to France to locate Mariëtte, the nurse who had treated him for his injuries. Fortunately, Mariëtte was still employed at the hospital in a small French village. Despite Georgius being stationed in Austria for minor military assignments and Mariëtte working in France, they began a long-distance relationship.

Georgius and Mariëtte dated for two years before he invited her to move in with him in Austria. They tied the knot on March 29, 1818. After their wedding, Mariëtte began to volunteer at a nearby hospital while Georgius continued to serve in the military.

Aloysius Rothfeld was born on June 7, 1837 in Austria to Georgius Rothfeld and Mariëtte Bruére. His birth brought great joy, especially to his father who longed for a son.

The first years of Georgius and Mariëtte's marriage were romantic. After they had their son, Aloysius, they were extremely happy. They now had a house, family, status and wealth. But after the golden years, Georgius was increasingly bothered by nightmares, flashbacks and periods of depression. He became more and more violent and abusive towards his children. When Aloysius wanted to pursue a medical career instead of joining the military, which Georgius had always wanted for his son, his situation reached a breaking point. He pushed his son until he finally relented. But this was only the beginning. With Aloysius out of the house, Mariëtte had to take most of the blows. In 1859, she decided to flee the home, leaving Georgius alone. Also, the rumours resulting from his abusive behaviour towards his son and wife spread through the local community. In a split second, everything Georgius had worked for was shattered into pieces. He sought comfort in drinking, which only worsened his condition until he finally hit rock bottom.

On New Years Eve, January 1st, 1860, Georgius committed suïcide by hanging. Shortly before, he disinherited Aloysius and left his estate and his savings to his direct family. Also, he prepared a letter stating his son and wife were not welcome at the funeral. Unlike the custom of being buried, Georgius wished to be cremated, and his ashes spread out in an unknown location so nobody could find him again. According to local rumours, the site is somewhere on the battlefield where he was wounded and lost most of his comrades.

Georgius has a strong but slender figure, measuring 1,92m and weighing about 78kg. He has a pale complexion, deep-set blue eyes and grey hair. He is known to be very strict but also has a great sense of humour.
