Herman Hochter

Herman Hochter was born on January 16, 1842, on the Hochter estate as the son of Samuel and Elsbeth Hochter. Despite some complications, he was born healthy and cheerful, although one month later than anticipated.

Mozes Hochter was born on May 12th, 1845, as the second child of Samuel and Elsbeth Bruere on the Hochter estate. Although the birth initially went smoothly, it soon became apparent that the baby was breech. Two doctors present at his birth tried to save him. After several hours, the baby was finally delivered but unfortunately died shortly afterwards. His mother, Elsbeth, was heartbroken and fell into a depression afterwards and became extra protective over her family. The baby, posthumously named Mozes, was buried at the local cemetery in Lutheria.

David Hochter was born on September 7, 1856 on the Hochter farm as the third child of Samuel and Elsbeth Hochter. The family was particularly elated to welcome David as his older brother Mozes had passed away shortly after birth. During David's birth, his grandmother and 14-year-old elder brother Herman were in attendance.

Herman began working at the farm when he was very young. However, he had a dream of becoming a jeweller and learning the trade. His father managed to save some money, despite their already poor financial situation, so that Herman could attend a jewellery class. Thanks to this opportunity, he was able to secure an apprenticeship with a local jeweller. The money he earned went back to the family and it helped them get through difficult times. Herman aspires to open his own shop one day, specializing in timepieces.

On December 18, 1864, Lotte Hochter was born on the Hochter estate as the fourth child of Samuel and Elsbeth Hochter. Her brothers Herman and David were also present. During delivery, Elsbeth was stressed and scared due to a previous complication with her son Mozes. However, the delivery went smoothly and Lotte was born healthy. Being the only girl, her mother is especially protective of her.

Herman bears a strong resemblance to his father in terms of appearance, sporting green-blue eyes, short brown hair, and a sturdy posture. Standing tall at 194cm, he exudes kindness and radiates a cheerful and optimistic personality. During his leisure time, he enjoys hanging out with his pals in an old shack where they engage in games, conversations, and share a drink.

Family

The Hochter family is one of the few Jewish families living in the area. Their ancestors hailed from East Germany and Poland, and they migrated to Kilden in search of a better life. For many generations now, the Hochter family has been residing in the region, with most of them working as farmers or butchers. Most notably, the Hochter farm is known for raising cattle for meat production, which is primarily sold through local butchers in the area. Despite the fact that they still face prejudice and hatred from locals of other religions, the situation is slowly improving, and people are becoming more respectful towards other faiths.
