|Position||Village of the Valley resident|
Hans married his wife Tabitha long before the States War tore the American continent apart. Following the war, Hans and Tabitha refused the Mark. They found that being Markless was particularly difficult in the city, especially since they were past middle age. Abandoning metropolitan life, they retreated to the Village of the Valley, where they found community with other aging Markless.
Hans and Tabitha offer shelter to Logan, Hailey, and Dane when they arrive at the Village, seeking shelter and guidance. Some of the rumors Hans had heard about Acheron, as well as his views on Revelation, frightened the three, although he did not mean to upset them. Hans helped build the canoe in which Logan and Hailey traveled to Beacon City. Dane continued living with Hans and Tabitha after he decided to remain in the Village of the Valley to begin a radio broadcast.
Hans shows Dane the fields in the Village, helping acquaint him with how the residents survive. He reveals to Dane that a permadrought has already begun, and that, without rain, the very survival of the Village is in danger.
Hans is a very dependable man. Although he understands the need for caution, he shows great kindness and hospitality to strangers.
Family and RelationshipsEdit
Hans has been married to his wife, Tabitha, for many years. They presumably have no children.
